UTS: Nursing, Midwifery and Health is committed to keeping pace with the health care industry, both nationally and globally. In keeping with this mission, the Faculty regularly collaborates with international guests, and is currently hosting a number of overseas nursing and health services management experts.
Associate Professor Margaret Hansen is visiting UTS for five months from the Adult Health Department of the School of Nursing at the University of San Francisco. With expertise in nursing education and informatics, her research has included an investigation of the effectiveness of an interactive multimedia learning tool on nursing students’ learning outcomes.
Professor Hava Golander is Head of the Nursing Research Unit in the School of Health Professions at Tel Aviv University in Tel Aviv, Israel. During her two-month visit to UTS she will be exploring Sydney clinical sites with a number of our Clinical Professors.
Also honouring UTS with his presence is Brendan McCormack, Professor of Nursing Research at the School of Nursing, University of Ulster in Ireland. His main aim is to further the practice development agenda and clinical education joint project between UTS and South East Sydney Illawarra Area Health Service (SESIAHS). He will also be undertaking PHD supervision for the Faculty, most likely in the areas of practice development, gerontology, action research and service improvement. His visits to UTS will continue for the next three years, sponsored jointly by the Faculty and SESIAHS.
The Faculty has more collaborations planned for the future, with Professor Jim Buchan from Queen Margaret University College in Edinburgh, Scotland, returning later this year. He will be working closely with the UTS Centre for Health Services Management and the WHO Collaborating Centre for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Development at UTS.
