iPANEL Thinking Outside the Box Meeting - hosted by VIHA on May 7, 2013
A big THANK YOU to all the nurses and other health care professionals who attended our meeting on May 7, 2013. Special thanks to iPANEL Affiliates: Lorna Ross, Dawn Dompierre, and Carolyn Wilkinson for all your help with planning this event. The discussion and feedback by the participants was outstanding. It is always a privilege as a research team to share our findings with nurses who are working on the front lines. Here are what some participants had to say:
"I enjoyed the group discussion and found support from colleagues about things I have experienced - there were some people around the table with wonderful ideas. "
"Workshops like this one really demonstrate how research can directly affect practice"
"Very comfortable and open atmosphere for meaningful discussions"
The purpose of these meetings is to engage front line nurses in discussions around iPANEL research findings and how these can be integrated into their nursing practice. These are interactive sessions with the engagement of iPANEL Co-investigators and Health Authority Affiliates.
Look for upcoming information around our next hosted "Thinking outside the box meeting" in Northern Health - October 17, 2013 from 1-4pm.
