From many literature reviews to inquiry-based meetings on real-life, quality improvement healthcare issues discussed with UBC faculty advisors and clinical practice leaders, the UBC Nursing 344 Synthesis Projects for 2013/14 are now permanently accessible in cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository.

For NURS 344, several teams of BSN students undertook a self-directed study in 2013/14. These UBC students partnered with clinical practice leaders across the Greater Vancouver area: the BC Cancer Agency, the BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre to the Fraser Health, Providence Health, and Vancouver Coastal Health.

Led by their faculty advisors, Maura Macphee and Lynne Esson, and with NURS 344 project submissions’ coordinator, Carla Hilario (a UBC Nursing PhD student/teaching assistant), it was a first-of-its-kind, collaborative experience for this course. How so? A virtual, open-to-the-public poster gallery was created. (See the gallery on musculoskeletal injury, lung cancer, mental health and substance use, and health promotion and more at:
