Leadership in Healthcare Delivery and Policy
This undergraduate nursing class uses an unfolding case study focused on the complex care of a Burmese male. The students complete the questions on the unfolding case study and come to class prepared to engage in the debriefing. This is a collaborative effort with Franciscan Health educators, clinical nurse specialists, a case manager, charge nurses, a Burmese nurse, and a Burmese physician. Guest speakers from Exodus Inc. speak to the students; clarify the difference between a refugee and an immigrant, and outline the process of requesting refugee status in the US and the governmental supports provided during the transition following resettlement. Content includes information about where they have come from - including camp life. The intent is to raise student awareness of the situation from which the refugees flee, the life in the camp, and the behaviors, values and healthcare practices of the Burmese Chin culture.
