Globalisation and its implications for health care and nursing practice

Caroline Bradbury-Jones Lecturer in nursing, School of Healthcare Sciences, Bangor University, Wrexham, Wales

Globalisation describes the increasing economic and social interdependence between countries. This article examines globalisation in terms of the opportunities and threats it poses to health, in particular increasing rates of non-communicable diseases. Nursing is challenged with responding to the changing health needs of the global population that have arisen as a result of globalisation.
