It is no secret that we live in a global society. Wound, ostomy and continence nurses work in myriad of settings with client populations that reflect global diversity. Healthcare providers and clients alike benefit from care informed by global engagement. During this episode of WOCTalk, we sit down with Kevin Emmons DrNP, APN, AGPCNP-BC, CWCN, CFCN and Lynette Franklin APRN, MSN, ACNS-BC, CWOCN-AP, CFCN, to discuss their session at WOCNext 2019 titled, “Glocal Perspectives on Healthcare: WOC Practice with Diverse Populations”. Listen in to review several definitions of global health, learn about Kevin and Lynette’s service learning experiences from different parts of the world, and to receive an introduction to the concept of “glocal” care–translating global knowledge to care at a local level.
