Message from the dean

Advancing research

W

e are moving forward and making advancements in the scholarship of discovery and applied research. Our faculty are contributing to a growing body of nursing and healthrelated research. Through scholarship, they are contributing both theoretical and clinical knowledge to improve health care and nursing education. Our faculty and staff are currently engaged in 12 research projects and are generating new knowledge in areas such as electronic learning strategies, clinical practice education models, the use of evidence in practice, factors impacting outcomes in perioperative nursing, mentorship of faculty, and enhancing safety engagement of mining employees. A number of the research projects support the research program centered on rural community wellness. Dr. Lyle Grant, coordinator, Institute for Nursing Scholarship and his team were successful in receiving a $25,000 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Applied Research and Development (ARD) grant. This award represents SIAST Nursing Division’s first NSERC ARD grant under the College Community Innovation Grant Program. The project will transform how body movements are

tracked and analyzed for psychomotor skill teaching and learning. Lyle is partnering with ISIS Health Informatics Resource Group Inc. for this project. Madeline Press and Roslyn Compton received a research grant from the Western Northwestern Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (WNRCASN) to explore students’ perception of block and non-block clinical practice education. Faculty are supported in their engagement in research through our Institute for Nursing Scholarship, as well as SIAST’s Office of Applied Research. Our research capacity is further enhanced with the establishment of a formal partnership with the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation. The engagement of students in research is a critical element in building research capacity. Nursing students were hired as research assistants to work with the faculty and the Institute for Nursing Scholarship (INS) coordinator on various projects. By participating in an actual research project nursing students gain a better understanding of the research process and appreciate the value and importance of research to the nursing profession. These nursing students who contributed as research assistants are more likely to engage in research in their professional roles as registered nurses. By engaging in the scholarship of discovery, our faculty and students are contributing to evidence-based nursing education and practice.


SWITCH initiative

Involvement in student-run clinic paves pathway to future

A

lixe Dick, a second-year Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (SCBScN) student at SIAST Kelsey Campus in Saskatoon, describes her involvement with the Student Wellness Initiative Toward Community Health (SWITCH) as “life changing.” SWITCH is a student-run health clinic that provides a variety of free health services to residents living in Saskatoon’s inner city neighbourhoods. Its mission is building health equity in the community and providing learning opportunities within the context of a student-managed health centre that is non-judgmental, evolving, sustainable, interprofessional and client-centred. “The focus on integration of services including such dimensions as employment and skills training, time management skills and prevention programming was a perfect fit,” said Dick. Within the SWITCH program she currently serves as volunteer coordinator. This position involves coordination of recruitment, orientation, scheduling, recognition, supervision and administrative

support for shifts. She uses her skill set on SWITCH shifts by assisting students and mentors of other disciplines to work collaboratively on a clinical team and is passionate about this opportunity of learning and contributing. “I enjoy implementing and maintaining the communication links, promoting strategies and developing information programs aimed at mentor and student volunteers, while also promoting the activities and events we are involved in,” said Dick. The work with SWITCH also fits very nicely with her past experience. She has always been active in furthering efforts with various health-related organizations in Saskatoon and knew at an early age her future career would be in the field of health care. Chris Barlow, program head, SCBScN, SIAST Kelsey Campus believes Dick demonstrates some unique qualities in all she does. “I have observed Alixe’s leadership skills, her dedication to other nursing and allied health students, and her consistent focus on professionalism and improving

the health of the people of Saskatchewan and beyond,” describes Barlow in a nomination for Dick for the SRNA Ruth Hicks Award for Student Leadership. Dick hopes to complete her nursing degree in 2015 and aspires to continue her health-care profession in emergency medicine. Ultimately, she says she would like to pursue her master’s degree in nursing and become a nurse practitioner. Her personal career desire will be realized when she is able to split her time between clinical practice and becoming an educator.

Supporting student success

Positive work environment energizes faculty member

S

helly Luhning’s energy level can be described in one word— contagious. Luhning, having been with SIAST for approximately five years and currently a member of SIAST’s Nursing faculty, sees challenges as opportunities and accomplishments as a time to focus on “what’s next?” Not long ago, she was central to a team effort of curriculum development for four classes within the nursing program. This included lab components, medical simulation and channelling a recommendation that each nursing student utilize an electronic mobile device at the point of care. “We witnessed the success of the integration of technology and wanted to build it even further,” she describes. So, she saw an opportunity to become active with the development of an app designed to help streamline the learning

processes even further. The app—better known as “SNapp” will track course competencies, status and comments to instructors, and skills within clinical practice and align with Saskatchewan Registered Nurses’ Association (SRNA) competencies. Though daunting to build technology from a concept point, Luhning says it has been fun. “It has been a great team effort,” Luhning describes, noting it has involved much consultation and exceptional assistance of SIAST’s computer technology students to get the concept moving. She appreciates the support of dean Netha Dyck and program head Chris Barlow. A request for proposal for the app’s next stage is currently in the works to allow for a trial phase followed by some pilot implementation, rollout and transition. Where does all her energy come from? Luhning attributes it to a very

positive work environment, great support, and undoubtedly also from colleagues, family and friends. “The sky is the limit whatever we do,” Luhning smiles.

Respect and support key ingredients for SIAST Nursing faculty

“R

espectful and supportive” are descriptors that Terri Burrell would use to describe the working environment as a member of SIAST’s nursing faculty in Regina. Burrell says the support of faculty and students is second to none and she appreciates the atmosphere every day as she balances the needs of a young family and working full time. She has been with SIAST since 2009. “Without a doubt, I feel respected and supported in everything I do here,” she describes.

Unquestionably, those workplace values continue to motivate her to do even more for the organization and the nursing profession. She currently teaches lab and clinical. “I enjoy both aspects of this opportunity,” she notes. “It is especially inspiring when I witness student success.” She looks forward to seeing the first cohort of graduates from the Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (SCBScN) program enter into their careers, as a way of evaluating her own success as an educator.

“So much has evolved over the past few years as the program has gotten established,” Burrell describes, attributing the growth to everyone’s ideas being heard, reflected upon and integrated wherever possible.


Industry partnerships

Feds fund 3D research to analyze body movements A

research project to determine how 3D muscle-movement-tracking technology can be refined and customized has received $25,000 funding from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC). The research will be jointly undertaken by the SIAST Nursing Division and a Canadian health management company (ISIS Health Informatics) enabling SIAST nursing students to participate in testing hardware and software that track and analyze body movements. Students will perform two clinical tasks, such as intravenous line insertion or an injection, that require coordination, dexterity, speed, fine-motor movement or other psychomotor skills. Dr. Lyle Grant, coordinator of SIAST’s Institute for Nursing Scholarship says the portable technology potentially enables SIAST to offer higher-fidelity learning opportunities in a much more cost effective manner, independent of a centralized lab. “Its application ultimately enhances safety and comfort to patients by allowing students to practice ‘invasive skills’ in a lifelike manner and receive very realistic feedback,” he said. Health-care workers have some of the highest rates of musculoskeletal injuries of all Canadian workers. These injuries relate to repetitive on-the-job tasks and inadvertent poor body mechanic positioning during required activities of bending and lifting. Interest in this training device is expected from health care authorities and workers’ compensation boards in Canada as the technology is extended to tracking a multitude of body mechanics movements. Dr. Netha Dyck, dean of Nursing is proud of SIAST’s leadership in the use of simulation learning in Canada. She applauds the Nursing Division’s research team and SIAST’s Office of Applied Research and Innovation for working together to secure the grant through NSERC’s College and Community Innovation program.

Its application ultimately enhances safety and comfort to patients by allowing students to practise ‘invasive skills’ in a lifelike manner and receive very realistic feedback.

Dr. Lyle Grant, coordinator, Institute for Nursing Scholarship “We continuously strive to enhance our virtual education capacity,” she said. The Institute for Nursing Scholarship (INS) supports and promotes scholarly activity within the SIAST Nursing Division. Its primary role is supporting faculty in developing and advancing scholarship. This includes assisting faculty in formulating research proposals, applying for funding, conducting and managing research projects and writing up and publishing results. The INS remains instrumental in promoting collaborative applied research projects connecting SIAST Nursing Division with industry and other institutional and professional practice partners. “The ISIS project is an example of an industry partnership,” said Grant. “The INS and SIAST Nursing Division have also recently received funding from the Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses as part of a commitment to help increase the practice evidence available to licensed practical nurses.” Grant added that the INS helps coordinate and connect faculty to scholarship resources like surveying, data manage-

ment, project planning, data analysis software, and statisticians, transcriptionists, copy editors, and other scholars. “These are some of the essential services for conducting and increasing productivity in applied research,” Grant noted. Dean Dyck commended these research efforts in moving SIAST forward. “Such partnerships have been demonstrated as significant steps to building applied research capacity and confidence in faculty members necessary to fostering growth in applied research,” Dyck noted. “These collaborations increase the profile of SIAST and lead to increasing rates of opportunities for applied research.” The INS continues to build upon strategies to better connect the applied research expertise of SIAST Nursing Division to the communities we serve, ultimately aimed at improving rural community wellness in Saskatchewan. The INS also works closely with the SIAST Office of Applied Research and Innovation in efforts to enhance scholarly capacity at SIAST.

Joleen Klassen, program head, Critical Care Nursing

Program expansion

Critical Care Nursing program expands to meet growing needs “L aunching an advanced certificate for the new Critical Care Nursing program has been a real team effort and as a result, I feel proud,” said Joleen Klassen. A registered nurse, Klassen took the Basic Critical Care Nursing program in 2002 and worked in cardiac intensive care and intensive care, followed by teaching experiences at SIAST and an advisory role within the Ministry of Health. When she came to SIAST as program head for the Critical Care Nursing program, it was like coming full circle. She saw it as an opportunity to give back and offer consistent education by enhancing the program and expanding

it beyond Regina and Saskatoon and throughout the province. Klassen describes the program as distance-based with modules available online and most of the education completed as close to the home setting as possible. The extensive consultation with nurses and managers from the health regions helped to shape the vision for the program. Critical care nurses with urban and rural perspectives and clinical and academic expertise developed the new program. Students are engaged through a variety of learning activities—course readings, discussion board interaction, video integration, case studies, simula-

tion, and preceptor clinical practice education with hands-on experience. Each concept builds on the next and adds value to support nurses to provide quality patient and family-centred care, ultimately for best patient outcomes. “It’s an exciting and intensive program with both full-time and part-time intakes to accommodate students,” she adds. The first cohort of students from North Battleford and Prince Albert began their part-time studies in January and the program will eventually expand to all health care regions in the province with critical care beds. Klassen is quick to give kudos to the continued on page 7

mense, and attributes the achievement to a great group effort—both by students and faculty. “I always get overwhelmed when I introduce the class at graduation time and see how they have developed into competent professionals,” Myers said. “This pinning ceremony was especially exciting with the record number of graduates.” She compliments her team of faculty including those who worked closely with the students during their clinical practice education in North Battleford, Yorkton, Moose Jaw and Prince Albert following their first year in Regina.

“It is an intense and challenging program,” Myers emphasizes. “The pin represents their dedication and high level of competence achieved as a graduates of the program.” Graduates are prepared with the necessary skills, knowledge and attitudes to work within an increasingly complex mental health system. Graduates of the Psychiatric Nursing diploma program are eligible to apply for SIAST's Bachelor of Psychiatric Nursing degree completion program. A class of 28 is currently working towards their own pinning ceremony in 2015.

and Regina, and rural Saskatchewan intensive care units has created standard education for registered nurses employed in ICUs across Saskatchewan,” said McWatters. “This standard education has created the opportunity to enhance patient care and safety through continuity of care. The Critical Care Nursing program will further address recruitment and retention issues in rural ICU settings.” The program follows the standards set by the Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses and the competencies listed by the Canadian Nurses Association. The following is a link to the SIAST promotional critical care nursing program video, highlighting the program and partnerships in our province. http://youtu.be/nNLjhp_qIHM.

he Psychiatric Nursing program has recently celebrated its largest graduating class with 33 students. Equally impressive is that most of the graduates have found employment in the field of psychiatric nursing in communities throughout the province. Sue Myers, program head, attributes the success of the graduates to the strong practice education component in the program which prepares the students for their future roles as graduates and consequently offers employment opportunities. Myers says the sense of accomplishment with this pinning ceremony is im-

team she has worked with to bring about changes, notably Regina and Saskatoon health region liaisons for being so instrumental throughout the development of the program. She also gave kudos to her SIAST colleagues Andrea Walker, Courtney Dingle, Erin Haas, Janet Johnson, Heidi Kirk, Laura Lewicki, Sharon Misfeldt, Renée Regimbal, Jocelyn Schwartz and everyone behind the scenes who assisted in publishing, administration, registration services, learning technologies, helpdesk, and many others. Klassen is especially grateful for the leadership and guidance of Dean Netha Dyck, Associate Dean Cindy Smith, and

throughout the process. “I am so happy to be working at SIAST and to be part of the nursing division leadership team,” she says. “The nursing division believes in shared vision, collaborative decision making, open communication, team building and team work, effective program and resource management, quality improvement and innovation, and best practices. These are all leadership practices I value and believe in, and I feel that’s what the program demonstrates.” Pat McWatters, nurse manager ICU/Dialysis/COPS of Battlefords Union Hospital agrees. “The provincial partnership between SIAST, the tertiary hospitals in Saskatoon

Harm reduction social media campaign

Psychiatric Nursing student participates in national campaign P

articipating as a member of a national social media campaign to bring about awareness and involvement of health-care professionals in harm reduction has been consistent with Ezra James’ passion for his career aspiration as a psychiatric nurse. “Harm Reduction = Nursing Care Campaign” is a new initiative of bringing about awareness and involvement of health-care professionals in harm reduction. The use of Facebook www.facebook.com/Nurses4HarmReduction was seen as an effective way of getting the messages out. It is being led by three Canadian nursing organizations: Canadian Nurses Association (CNA), Canadian Association of Nurses in HIV/AIDS Care (CANAC), Canadian Nursing Students’ Association (CNSA) in support of harm reduction. James is a second year student of the Psychiatric Nursing program and a student member of CANAC, originally from Regina but currently doing year 2 of the Psychiatric Nursing program in Prince Albert. He said the campaign’s approaches recognize the need for risk reduction, health and safety promotion, and prevention of death and disability. “We can all make a difference in the work we do,” says James. “Each community has different needs. Working hard to meet those needs is something I believe in as an individual and member of society.” The campaign is based on principles intended to treat all individuals with respect, dignity and in a non-judgmental manner, regardless of their health conditions, their behaviours, and their practices. “I am interested in doing whatever I can to help with the challenges of harm reduction,” said James. His background includes roles with public health and addictions. He compliments SIAST for providing a relevant Psychiatric Nursing program

that he says is being delivered by hard working and dedicated faculty to students who are actively engaged. He would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a career of working with people. “The program has been a life-changing experience,” James says. “It has expanded my horizons, enhanced my critical thinking ability and has given me greater capacity for self-reflection.”

Research and collaboration

Different clinical education models focus of research C

linical education research, that started as a pilot project with a sample population at one site, has now expanded into something that Madeline Press and Roslyn Compton hope will someday make a professional difference internationally. Press’ and Compton’s dreams and research aspirations have been intertwined in many ways. Both are nursing faculty members, both are PhD candidates and both have a huge capacity for leading-edge work. They bring a great combined perspective. Press is from Saskatchewan. Compton came to Canada from Australia and still returns there regularly to practise in the profession. Their research focuses on how clinical practice is integrated best into a nurse’s formal education. Specifically, it will determine some of the relative merits of clinical requirements being intermixed within the study period, or delivered in more of a block format. “Our research helps answer important questions of pedagogy and practicality for nursing programs,” Press describes. “This clinical project demonstrates the importance of applied research to answering questions that consider the realities of clinical placement challenges while maintaining an emphasis on pedagogy, student outcomes, and other pragmatics.” “It also demonstrates how an idea was incubated at SIAST and enjoys increasing support and interest from various places in Canada,” Compton adds. Dr. Lyle Grant, coordinator, Institute for Nursing Scholarship, SIAST Nursing Division agrees. “It is a success story of networking, collaboration, interdisciplinary study, and scholarship of discovery.” Press notes they have engaged partners from outside SIAST including University of Saskatchewan and University of Lethbridge, and they are beginning to see growing interest in other provinces as well.

Nursing faculty members Roslyn Compton (left) and Madeline Press (right) are taking on some important research efforts for clinical education research.

“We hope to be presenting this research internationally in a year’s time,” Press describes. Compton agrees, noting the first two phases of the research have looked at student perceptions of block versus nonblock clinical education models. “We felt it was important to provide informed evidence to support the allocation of clinical placement hours within the curricula,” she notes. “In phase three, we will be including faculty perceptions as well.” Both credit SIAST with establishing an environment that supports research and helps them to build networks across academic institutions, thus moving the SIAST applied research interests forward. “Dean Netha Dyck has been very encouraging and is a proponent of research, allowing for the time requirements for the work to be done,” Press describes. Compton reiterates that sense of

SIAST’s culture and values. “SIAST encourages us to look at our practice in a holistic way, making what we do even more relevant,” she says.
