[Extract] My presentation today is about exploring global trends in nursing and midwifery education. Fifty, 40, even 30 years ago, nurses would not have talked about such things. Our 'worlds' were much smaller then. We could walk or drive just about anywhere within them in an hour or two. Here we are now, in 2015, meeting in South Korea. While most of us have flown in to this lovely city, there are also many who are joining in from different corners of the globe through the medium of Twitter. The pace of change in our world is staggering. And in this filled-to-the-brim era, we rarely seem to have the time to stop and think about just how much has changed in such a short time. This presentation speaks to the main trends and directions in global nursing and midwifery education – a complex and multi-faceted area. I suggest, however, that the answer to the question I posed earlier – "How do we keep up with it all?" – might actually be quite simple. I will get back to that one a little later.
