Peter Cardellichio presented our work at the Global Nursing Caucus Conference in Boston on October 20. Peter’s talk—Using New Media for International Training—covered the vision and goals of the Global Health Media Project, showed sample clips demonstrating unique features of our work, and addressed the important and expanding role that video will play in training of nurses and frontline providers in developing countries.

Conference participants were enthusiastic about using these videos in their teaching and training. The Global Nursing Caucus is focused on improving nursing care worldwide by improving collaboration and information dissemination among those in this field.
