A Global Network of Care

The World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center for Research and Clinical Training in Home Care Nursing is one of 10 WHO Collaborating Centers in the US and one of 38 in the world. We work with the WHO and the Global Network of WHO Collaborating Centres for Nursing and Midwifery Development.

The focus of the WHO Collaborating Center at Case is home care nursing -- the delivery of health care services in the home setting. Change in all parts of the world, from aging of the population, the increase in chronic diseases, and the development of infectious diseases, places a burden on the existing health care systems. Home care nursing is one solution to the problem.

As part of the activities of the WHO Collaborating Center for Research and Clinical Training in Home Care Nursing:

  • We host international visitors who want to pursue interests in home care nursing

  • FPB faculty provide consultation on home care nursing programs around the world for development of home care and also evaluation of existing programs and activities

  • We work with international colleagues in the development of health policy materials for the World Health Organization and the Pan American Healthcare Organization
