The Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Nursing Toolkit was created to advance cultural humility in healthcare practice. The features of this toolkit includes an interactive webpage (www.soginursing.ca), a quiz to allow for reflection and identification of personal biases, introductory lessons about cultural humility, four learning modules and curated resources. Each learning module centers on a healthcare encounter that demonstrates the use of cultural humility to meet the unique needs of LGBTQI2S community. The learning modules include an introduction with suggested reading(s), case summary, module-specific learning outcomes, self-assessment rubric, five decision-point virtual simulation game (VSG), debriefing strategies including self-reflective questions, and targeted resources.
Julia Annette Melisek, a master’s candidate, received the Susan B. Davies Scholarship for Indigenous Nursing Students. This scholarship has been generously created by Ms. Susan B. Davies and the Canadian Federation of University Women. It is given to a First Nations, Métis or Inuit woman enrolled in an undergraduate, masters or doctoral program at the School of Nursing.
The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) in partnership with the Canadian Alliance of Nurse Educators using Simulation (CAN-Sim) have collaborated to develop and disseminate five virtual simulation modules in both official languages to build capacity among graduating and new registered nurses entering the health care workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic. Registered nurses (RNs) are frontline responders in the COVID-19 health crisis and critical to the effective delivery of health care services. We believe directed nursing education and training that is easily accessed virtual is an essential service during this health crisis. This will enable new, front-line nurses to better provide care for patients with COVID-19 while ensuring personal safety.
