As health care moves increasingly to evidence based practice (EBP), the profession continues to face challenges of preparing competent practitioners and in finding ways for current staff to stay engaged in evidence based practice. The first is a challenge for academe while the second is a challenge for the service sector. These challenges cannot be addressed by either academe or practice in isolation and can effectively be met through research and knowledge mobilization .This presentation describes the formation and impact of the York-CAMH Collaborative, an innovative partnership between the Faculty of Health at York University and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
CAMH and York have a long history of collaboration on student placements; however this agreement is more comprehensive and ambitious with a goal to accelerate knowledge and practice for promoting mental health locally, nationally and globally. This integrative approach supports both the education and research mandate of the York Faculty of Health and the professional practice goals at CAMH. This nursing led initiative also includes the departments of Health Policy Management; Kinesiology, Nursing, and Psychology). The Collaborative is supported by an advisory committee made up of key stake holders from both organizations, to ensure that the mandate and vision of the collaborative is optimized and evaluated. The initial focus is on innovative student placements/internships, research assistantships, research volunteers and continuing Professional Development initiatives for CAMH staff. We also expect to create opportunities for CAMH experts to contribute to classroom teaching at York.

Statement of the Problem: Nursing students may experience difficulty in establishing rapport with their patients during clinical practicum. Their interpersonal skills have become weaker because communication styles have changed. Touch care is effective in managing pain, nausea, anxiety, fatigue, and insomnia; and it can also aid in establishing rapport between the receiver and giver. Touch care skills might help students build better relationships with patients.
The purpose of this study is to clarify that the nursing students who learned touch care have improved their communication skills with their patients during clinical rounds.
Methodology: Five junior nursing students who learned touch care (lecture and practice) were included in the study.We conducted semi-structured interveiws with these students before and after their clinical practicum. Recorded interviews were transcribed, and the data was analyzed with content analysis. The steps included selecting the unit of analysis, coding, grouping and categorizing.
Findings: After the students completed clinical practicum, three categories including “strengthen self-efficacy in nursing skills”, “deepen understanding with patients”, and “expanding interactual effects of touching” were extracted.
Conclusion & Significance: The students experienced the effects of touch care and recognized the improvement in their communication skills. Touch care was effective not only in patients who suffered discomfort, but also in students who provided it.
Recommendations are made for nursing education to incorporate touch care skills into the nursing curriculum to help nursing students acquire therapeutic communication skills. The sample of this research was small and future studies should be encouraged.

Contemporary nursing educators are challenged to meet student expectations of learning that is both flexible and engaging. Nursing education is further confounded by reduced opportunities for consistent quality clinical experiences. Higher education must respond to these challenges by matching learning opportunities with stakeholder expectations. Simulation programs are proven effective educational tools in the healthcare context. The use of virtual simulation in health care to support development of clinical reasoning and prioritisation skills is growing in importance. Yet, there remains a dearth of literature in this field. The focus of this project has then been to pilot and evaluate an acute care virtual simulation platform based around care prioritisation. The pilot group were second year Bachelor of Nursing students from the University of Newcastle. The learning platform was evaluated for acceptance, functionality, confidence, and competence building in clinical decision-making when caring for 2 acute patients in a simulated hospital setting. The students had open access to the virtual simulation for a two weeks prior to attending focus group on campus. Transcripts of the focus groups were analysed thematically using narrative enquiry methods. Early results suggest that use of the virtual simulation added educational value to the students’ development of decision making and prioritisation skills. Students reported to feeling more confident prioritising assessment and care. This pilot learning virtual simulation suggests that the repeated use of the virtual program will enhance the knowledge and skills in decision-making and prioritisation so important in nursing.

The study aimed to explore the perception of both the staff nurse and the patient on (a) spirituality and spiritual care and (b) spiritual well being. Convergent parallel research design was utilized. Participants of this study were divided into two groups, nurses and patients, with 30 participants each, who responded to the Spirituality and Spiritual Care Rating Scale (SSCRS, McSherry et al, 1997) and the Spiritual Assessment Scale (SAS, O’Brien, 2011). After collating the results and treated by mean ratings, it was then consensually validated by both groups. Then a semi-structured interview took place to dig deeper into the spirituality and spiritual care of the participants. Hence, the data was treated individually, converged for similarities that provided key concepts for the development of the Spiritual Nursing Care Model (SNC). The key concepts are: (1) Spirituality; (2) Spiritual Care and (3) Spiritual Well-being. Spirituality and spiritual care are vital components of the healing process of a patient that promotes spiritual wellbeing among nurses and patients. Hence, there is a need to embrace these concepts in the nursing education and practice to bridge the gaps between the two. The SNC Model can be utilized in a wider scale of patients and nurses to test its applicability to other nurses and patient, taking into consideration various religious affiliations. Nursing Research and Education should pay more attention to nurse–patient interaction as an integral part of the caring process promoting meaning and wellbeing.

Background: Clinical performance is regarded as a basic and core content of nursing quality. Improving clinical performance is a useful screening indicator for practice nursing students’ professional competence. Few studies reveal the relationship between perceived stress, professional values and clinical performance. The purpose of the research is to determine whether professional values plays a moderating role in the relationship between perceived stress and clinical performance among Chinese practice nursing students.
Methods: 435 Chinese practice nursing students from 4 hospitals participated in this study. They completed questionnaires including the Perceived Stress Scale ( PSS ), Nursing Professional Value Scale-Revised ( NPVS-R ), and Clinical Performance Scale ( CPS ). Structural equation modeling was used to deal with the relationships among perceived stress, professional values, and clinical performance.
Results: Professional values significantly affected clinical performance ( P＜0.01 ) and moderated the relationship between perceived stress and clinical performance ( P＜0.01 ).
Conclusions: Professional values moderates the relationship between perceived stress and clinical performance, which can form scientific evidence to develop intervention strategies to improve clinical performance.

The purpose of this study was to decrease CVL infections in tertiary care hospital oncology unit Introduction: Catheters are the leading source of bloodstream infections for patient receiving chemotherapy or other long term treatment. Comprehensive unit-based programs have proven to be effective in decreasing catheter-related bloodstream infections. Central venous catheters (CVL)or central lines (defined as a vascular infusion device that terminates at or close to the heart or in one of the great vessels) are used in inpatient and outpatient clinical settings to provide long-term venous access for patients with a wide variety of illnesses and conditions. A CVL is a long, soft, thin, flexible tube that is inserted into one of the large veins leading to the heart.
Design: Pre intervention and post intervention observational study. Setting: The 31 bed medical & oncology unit in a tertiary care hospital. Between February 2014 and Auguest201, all patients admitted to the medical with CVL were surveyed prospectively for the development of catheter-associated bloodstream infection. A mandatory education program directed toward Medical & oncology unit nurses was developed by Clinical nurse instructor to highlight correct practices for the prevention of catheter-associated bloodstream infection. The program consisted of a unit in-service session including pre and post test based Presentations on risk factors and practice modifications involved in catheter-related bloodstream infections. Each participant was required to complete a pretest before Presentation and an identical test after completion of the Presentation
A fifteen episode of catheter-associated bloodstream infection occurred out of 50 catheters insertion in the 6 months before the introduction of the education program. Following implementation of the intervention, the rate of catheter-associated bloodstream infection decreased to 5 episodes out of 20 catheter insertion in the 6 months after the initiation of the education program.
An intervention focused on the education of health-care providers on the prevention of catheterassociated bloodstream infections may lead to decrease in the incidence of primary bloodstream infections
