About the Dr. GKC hunger strike in #Nepal March 28th, 2015

UPDATE April 3rd, 2015 – here is a link to Nepali newspaper that describes the agreement to end the hunger strike and accede to the demands of Dr. GKC.

I occasionally blog on DailyKos in USA, a web page for political issues. I haven’t been active there lately, but today I wrote about the hunger strike here. I wanted to get some international solidarity with the NMC, NMSS, Dr GKC – and – everybody.

I know I am an expat, but I think some international pressure would help.

About Joe Niemczura, RN, MS

These blogs, and my books, and videos are written on the principle that any person embarking on something similar to what I do will gain more preparation than I first had, by reading them. I have fifteen years of USA nursing faculty background. Add to it fifteen more devoted to adult critical care. In Nepal, I started teaching critical care skills in 2011. I figure out what they need to know in a Nepali practice setting. Then I teach it in a culturally appropriate way so that the boots-on-the-ground people will use it. One theme of my work has been collective culture and how it manifests itself in anger. Because this was a problem I incorporated elements of "situational awareness" training from the beginning, in 2011.
