Announcing! Learning Pathway for Palliative Care Skills

Announcing a new source for free, self-directed, and efficient learning – the Gain Palliative Skills (GPS) Learning Pathway. If you identify as NEW to palliative care – this is for you. The GPS contains learning resources curated by experts for the 12 domains of Canadian Interdisciplinary Palliative Care Competency Framework.  

Just like the GPS in your car, this pathway allows you to plot your own course, and explore short, free, self-paced online palliative education. You can choose as much or as little as you want.  

Best of all, the GPS Learning Pathway is designed to build on your current skills to deepen your practice and confidence when working with patients who have a life-limiting illness – and the skills you gain can transfer to any clinical environment.

Canadian Association of Neuroscience Nurses Conference

The Board of the Canadian Association of Neuroscience Nurses is inviting all nursing students to attend their 55th annual conference happening in May.

The Canadian Association of Neuroscience Nurses (CANN) began in 1969 under the leadership of Jessie Young, the founder and inaugural President of CANN.  The first Annual Conference and Scientific Sessions was an historical event in nursing and took place in 1970 in Montreal, QC in conjunction with the physician congress now known as The Canadian Neurological Sciences Federation (CNSF).  Since then, nurses from across Canada have been gathering yearly, in person or virtually, to share a common interest in the specialty of Neuroscience Nursing.

Each year, CANN’s Annual General Meeting and Scientific Sessions provide professional development, communities of practice, research collaboration, opportunities for leadership, and gatherings for support and fellowship.

Come, share your passion and knowledge of neuroscience nursing, meet highly skilled nurses, and see the best that Canada has to offer.
