Join in this unique opportunity for an insider’s view of one of the world’s best kept secrets – the Cuban health care system, with an emphasis on the role of nursing in the system and medical/scientific publication. Cuba has attained excellent health outcomes despite scarce resources, providing a powerful example that wealth does not equal health. Several overarching Cuban philosophical approaches to health will be explored during the exchange, including:
- Integration of nursing, medicine and public health practice at all levels.
- Outcomes-based planning and evaluation.
- Continuous risk assessment at the neighborhood level.
- Targeted intervention/education based on community needs.
- Widespread community engagement in health promotion, education and planning.
- The intersectioality of health: planning programs together with community health organizations, departments of education, transportation, public works, etc.
- Emphasis on prevention.
- Interdisciplinary work-groups as a foundation for healthcare teams.
The weeklong program in Cuba will be tailored to participants’ interests and may include:
- Visit to a polyclinic and neighborhood-level doctor-nurse office; interchange with health providers and patients.
- Meeting with grassroots neighborhood organizations to see their community projects.
- Discussions with public health professionals in Cuba to understand the social determinants and risk factors affecting population health in Cuba, and their emphasis on cross-sectoral work.
- Meetings with health policymakers to compare the challenges faced in the U.S. and in Cuba.
- Exchanges with professionals involved in nursing journals and other medical/scientific publications in Cuba.
This educational exchange will be limited to 15-20 participants, who will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority will be given to professionals involved in nursing journal publication (editors, reviewers, etc.). The group of travelers will be led by a MEDICC staff or board member, who will accompany the group from Miami to Cuba and back.
Travel arrangements and costs:
MEDICC works closely with Marazul Charters, an agency with decades of experience in arranging legal travel from the U.S. to Cuba. If interested in this program, you will apply for the exchange and be notified of your acceptance by MEDICC staff. Then, you will sign a participant agreement form, and send MEDICC a $500 deposit to guarantee your place. Applicants should have passports valid for up to six months after the dates of travel (valid through 7/22/2017). Participants make their own domestic flight and hotel arrangements to/in Miami (the latter is subject to change pending the advent of commercial flights from the U.S. to Cuba before Spring 2017). One overnight in Miami will be required on January 14, 2017. The total cost for a 7-day program depends on the number of participants, hotel and ground transportation costs, and program activities, and will be approximately $3,800 – $4,800 (prices are subject to change due to extreme demand for travel and rapid change in the Cuban travel/tourism sector and cannot be guaranteed in advance.) Marazul will confirm the price once all members of the delegation are finalized and the customized program has been arranged.
Cost estimate includes:
- Pre-trip orientation, webinars and relevant readings
- Roundtrip airfare between Miami and Havana
- Lodging for 7 nights, including breakfasts and weekday lunches
- Full program of educational exchanges tailored to your expressed interests
- Ground transportation in Cuba for all program activities, including airport transfers
- A MEDICC expert and a specialized interpreter to facilitate your time in Cuba
- Health insurance while in Cuba, and Cuban academic visa facilitated by MEDICC
If you have questions please email or call Gateways Program Director Elizabeth Sayre at firstname.lastname@example.org / (510) 350-3564. The final application deadline is August 15, 2016. Deposit, passport scan and other forms due September 15, 2016.

Another group taking a stand similar to INANE!
In our discussions – both online and at our conferences, INANE participants have nurtured a strong position regarding best editorial and publishing practices (see in particular our project launched at the 2014 conference in Maine, focusing on “Open Access, Editorial Standards and Predatory Publishing” One of the resources that has influenced our work on this issue is the Scholarly Kitchen series of “Things Publishers Do.” Today the chefs have provided the 2016 update of this list, which is now a list of 96 items! It well worth reading, and noticing the enhancements as well as the additions to the list!
Yesterday Leslie and I launched our series of information meetings to share a report of our recent trip to Cuba! We shared some slides summarizing our trip, and had a great discussion focusing on what can happen on a January 2017 INANE delegation to Cuba. We have three more of these video meetings planned – if you are interested in learning more, please sign up for one of the meetings to learn more! Let us know if you are interested but cannot join in one of these meetings, and we will make sure you are in the loop about the potential for this trip. If you missed Leslie’s post just after we returned, check it out to catch up on for early summary report.
If we find that there is sufficient interest to proceed with planning, we will let the staff at MEDICC know that we want to move forward with planning. We will then send out lots of information to everyone and will do all we can to make this a meaningful INANE event to strengthen our editorial connections with nursing and healthcare in Cuba!

At INANE 2015, there was a report from Shawn Kennedy and colleagues on the survey done of INANE members about student authors and papers. Patricia Gonce Morton, Editor of the Journal of Professional Nursing, the official publication of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, was asked to “take the message back to the AACN.” She has done so and this is her report:
- I met with the board of directors of AACN and discussed the issue.
- I gave a report to all assembled at our conference last week (about 600 people) and addressed the issue.
- I alerted all to my editorial this month in the Journal of Professional Nursing that includes a link to a publishing course I created while a Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellow.
- The 12 module course can be used or adapted by any organization under the Creative Commons rule. The first 11 modules focus on how to write a manuscript for publication in a journal and the last module is focused on how to be a manuscript reviewer. The link to the course is: http://nursing.utah.edu/journalwriting.
Thank you, Trish, for your leadership and follow-up in this area. I encourage all potential authors, whether students, faculty, or clinicians, to read the editorial and take advantage of the resources that are available.
We are eager to share this with everyone in INANE! Send us your feedback!
