As part of an outcome improvement initiative in an intermediate ICU at the Health Sciences Centre, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, patients participated in an innovation on the effects of collaborative goal setting and activity tracking through a visual display of the goals achieved. Patients had a high degree of engagement in setting their goals. Displaying patients’ progress had an effect on their quality of life and self-efficacy. Learn more about this project in the video and article: this is a project you can easily implement in your settings, and the authors explain how to do it.

The demand for acute care clinical sites, along with the need to prepare CNLs for a role in health promotion, disease prevention, and population health management, created an opportunity for these authors to expand the CNL role outside of the acute care setting. The goal was to allow CNL students to develop competencies in improving patient and population health. Learn how they developed and implemented the course: after watching the video, read the full article. Be sure to access the supplemental content on strategies for clinical site development for CNL in primary care.

The authors share their study and discuss implications of interest to nurses across settings. Watch the video and be sure to read the full article.
