The purpose of this poster is to summarize a clinical scholarship project in which needs of rural Zambians who seek healthcare at short-term medical clinics were identified. Using this information, a clinical resource guide was developed based on published best practice guidelines and available resources to educate medical mission nurses and assist in providing quality, culturally competent care. Implementation of educational materials specific to nurses and to the population served, has the ability to impact the quality of care provided through medical missions. This project has the potential to lead to a more all-inclusive resource for nurses who take part in the developing world.
