Several of our CIUSSS’s community nurses presented their projects at the Community Health Nurses of Canada National Conference 2024, which took place this past April in Toronto.

Anna Tazian, a senior nursing consultant for a number of CIUSSS teams including Child-Family-Youth, PRAIDA and Aire Ouverte, presented Inform, Involve, Retain. The pilot project for our CIUSSS nurses set out to establish a community of practice among frontline nurses who work with clients who are at risk or who have acquired a sexually transmitted and blood-borne infection. Its goal is both to equip community nurses with expertise in the area and to improve access to health care for the populations they serve.

Catherine Newberry, a nursing consultant in transversal community health and Camille Labrie, a nursing consultant in Frontline Services and Family Medicine Groups, presented on the Development of clinical scenarios for code blue simulations in CLSCs.
