I’m pleased to provide you with an update regarding the collaborative work underway to develop a provincial decision-making framework for quality nursing practice.
As you know, representatives of the Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses (SALPN), the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses’ Association (SRNA), and the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Association of Saskatchewan (RPNAS) have been working together over the last 18 months to develop a document that articulates a provincial decision-making framework for quality nursing practice. Late last year, this group of nursing regulatory body representatives undertook a series of small in-person consultations in three locations in the province. Feedback at the focus groups indicated that the Collaborative Decision-making Framework document was long overdue.
All members of the three nursing regulatory bodies are now invited to participate in a broad consultation process to provide feedback on the draft document. You may access the document at the following link: Draft Decision Making Framework.
Please submit your feedback by January 24, 2017 at 1600 hours by using the link below to access an online survey.
Once feedback has been received by the working group, it will be compiled and decisions will be made on incorporating feedback into the document. The intent is to have a completed document for joint release in early 2017. We will advise our memberships of a roll-out plan once the document is completed.
Thank you for considering participating in this process – your feedback is important.
Carolyn Hoffman, RN,
Executive Director, SRNA
