Anne Boykin Institute Plans Summer Academy on Interprofessional Partnerships Grounded in Caring
The Anne Boykin Institute for the Advancement of Caring in Nursing, developed in 2011, serves as the global catalyst for promoting the universal visibility and significance of caring in nursing. It supports the value of caring across disciplines and provides the global leadership for nursing education, practice and research grounding in caring.
Each year the Institute sponsors a Summer Academy, where academicians and health professionals gather for critical dialogue using a model of improvisational learning. The focus of this year’s Summer Academy, on June 25-27, will be interprofessional partnerships grounded in caring science. We invite physicians, psychologists, social workers, pharmacists, health administrators and other professionals dedicated to person-centered care to engage in a spirited dialogue led by “evocateurs” from various disciplines. Regina Holliday, patient rights activist, author, speaker and artist who uses painting as a catalyst for change, will open the Academy on Sunday evening and serve as “artist-in-residence.” The event will be held in FAU’s Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing in Boca Raton.
