As she hangs up the phone, Ling realizes she has a decision to make. Her sister, Naomi, is being discharged after an unexpected hospitalization and will need nursing care at home for several weeks. As a registered nurse, Ling is used to fielding requests for minor care and advice from family members and friends. This situation however, will be more difficult to navigate. She knows her family will want her to be involved in Naomi's care, and if she's honest with herself, she would like to be as well. But would it be the best approach for everyone involved? How will Ling keep separate her roles as nurse and sister?...

Indigenous people in Canada face many barriers to accessing primary health-care services, and a lack of cultural competency by health-care providers may be one of the reasons why. Chelsea Crowshoe, a senior advisor with Alberta Health Services and member of the Piikani First Nation, is hoping to break this barrier by promoting the importance of cultural knowledge and respect to health-care providers Alberta-wide. "My role is developing educational opportunities for health-care providers, and we've started within the awareness and sensitivity level of information," she says...

Registered nurses and nurse practitioners may be asked by patients to sign many different types of forms. These forms may be government-issued, employer-related or exist due to certain legislation. You may be asked to sign forms related to disability, injury or the provision of reimbursement from an insurance carrier or board, including worker's compensation. When you are asked to sign a form, should you sign it?

For over two decades, capacity issues within Edmonton hospitals have existed. Crowded emergency departments with numerous patients waiting for admission into inpatient beds has made patient flow a topic at all administrative levels for all services. From a systems perspective, most strategies have simply displaced the problem from one part of the system to another. If we are going to make a true difference, a "big picture" systems approach is required and traditional ways of doing business need to be challenged...

A registered nurse accesses the Netcare clinical record of a friend who isn't in their care. The member has no authority to do so and this is a breach of the patient's privacy Under the Health Professions Act, the RN's manager is required to submit a complaint to CARNA when a member has been suspended or terminated for what the employer believes is unprofessional conduct. Breach of privacy falls within that definition. What is the appropriate course of action for CARNA to address this breach of professional conduct?...

DEATH. It's not an easy thing to think about. People are often reluctant to consider their own mortality. However, death and dying are a fact of life. The fact that end-of-life care will be required for the vast majority of the population isn't something we often consider - unless you are a palliative care consultant or another health professional working in palliative care. We face death on a daily basis. Palliative care is an approach to health care that aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of both living and dying...
