Meeting the Information Needs of Winnipeg's Nurses
From the Editor|
Nursing: A Leading Force for Change was the theme for this year's National Nurses week. This issue of Info-RN carries this theme forward by providing resources and tools for nurses to help drive and manage change, whether it be health policy, patient care, or personal. To start your journey we've provided a selection of resourses exploring nursing and change. For those who wish to change policy or procedure, we've highlighted the Health Sciences Libraries Toolkit for Health Planning and Administration, the Mini-Toolkit for Lean Management, AHEAD, an alert service for healthcare decision makers, and WIHI, a free online audio program from the Insitute of Healthcare Improvement. The delivery of patient care/education is also changing. Learn about delivering culturally competent patient care with our featured DVD and patient education with graphic novels. Leading, managing, and coping with change can be stressful; avoid burnout with our featured books. In this issue you will also read about Read by QxMD, a new way to access journal articles and help us welcome Lisa Demczuk to her new role as the new Faculty of Nursing Liaison Librarian.
