Overview
Global humanitarian response involves all health professionals. Pharmacists and nurses play a critical role in improving and providing humanitarian responses.  However, there are very few formalized training programs in Humanitarian Assistance for practicing pharmacists and nurses. This program provides innovative training to prepare pharmacists and nurses for critical roles in advancing care and service during humanitarian response, rebuilding, and preparedness.

This 3-day workshop is jointly provided by the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and College of Nursing in partnership with the University of Colorado Department of Emergency Medicine and emBOLDen Alliances (eA), a global nonprofit with 65+ years of hands-on experience with vulnerable and crisis-affected communities.  The goal is to deliver a training program specific to the role of pharmacists and nurses in Humanitarian Assistance.

Program Objectives

  • Enhance the general knowledge and capacity of pharmacists and nurses about Humanitarian Assistance, including building familiarity with humanitarian guidelines, standards, and principles.
  • Prepare pharmacists and nurses for the critical role they play in advancing care and service during humanitarian response.
  • Provide and practice critical analysis skills necessary for emergency and rebuilding responses.
  • Create new leaders among pharmacists and nurses to improve the quality of Humanitarian Assistance provided.

Target Audience

Pharmacists, advanced practice nurses, and RNs interested in global humanitarian efforts.
