Main Nursing Week 2015 

May 11 - 17 is National Nursing Week, alongside International Nurses Day and Florence Nightingale's birthday May 12th. This theme for 2015-2016 Nurses Week "Nurses: With You Every Step of the Way", submitted by Sharon Moore, RN, BScN, MHS of Dunnville, ON, emphasizes how important nurses are in our lives-at every age, in all health situations, for all Canadians


You can send thanks to the nurses in your life by using the hashtag #everystep on Twitter. Or visit can-aiic.ca to learn more about the many ways nurses are with Canadians every step of the way.

Our partnership will include integration of various data elements such as employee data, statistical data (absenteeism rates, staff turnover). For mutual clients, SCC training will be available in our Library which can be assigned and tracked.



3M Health Care is offering E-learning modules on Skin and Wound Care, with topics such as: R.I.S.E Prevention, Topical Wound Management and Dressing Selection, Skin Tears, Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis, and Infusion Therapy Site Care.




Created in partnership with Casey House (an HIV/AIDS specialty hospital) and the Rekai Centres (a long term care home), HIV & Long Term Care: Compassionate Care in A Changing Landscape is a set of eight 20 minute videos that cover a full range of topics to assist long term care staff to care for people living with HIV. The videos are now available to Surge Learning users in our Library.
