Abstract

The role of international co-operation amongst higher education institutions in projects directed to promoting the health of Arctic populations, based on the example of nursing faculty at the Ammosov North-Eastern Federal University, is discussed. It is suggested that problems of education and health of Arctic peoples should have modern scientific and methodological support. It is necessary to develop co-operative new approaches to improve the quality of health care for inhabitants of the Arctic. This report is part of a special collection from members of the University of the Arctic Thematic Network on Northern Nursing Education. The collection explores models of decentralized and distributed university-level nursing education across the Circumpolar North.
