Madeleine M Leininger and Transcultural Nursing in Australia – an appreciation Dr Akram Omeri, OAM, PhD, RN, CTN-A, TCN-Scholar, FACN

Reflecting on the development of TCN in Australia, my thoughts for this paper turned to my friend and mentor, the late Madeleine Leininger, whose Culture Care theory has guided my research and teaching and made me someone with a life-time commitment to Transcultural informed theoretical perspectives as a discipline of practice and research.

I already had transnational experience when I came to Australia from Iran in 1971. My basic education had taken place in Lebanon, my midwifery certificate was gained in Manchester in England and my tertiary qualifications BSN and MN from the University of Washington in Seattle. I had been involved in healthcare experiences in these and other countries.
