In the province of Ontario, many of the public health units (PHUs) now possess and use social media as part of their daily health promotion and communication operations. To explore this topic, a planning meeting was held to generate deeper insights toward the use of these forms of technology for preventative services delivery. The planning meeting was held with 50 participants, comprising representatives from 20 of the 36 PHUs in Ontario, interested academics, students and government representatives. A nominal group technique (NGT) was used to build consensus related to future research needs, as related to public health and social media...

The Special Focus on Advanced Practice Nursing in Canada, published in the Canadian Journal of Nursing Leadership (http://www.longwoods.com/publications/nursing-leadership/24885), highlights the unique contributions that advanced practice nurses (APNs) have added to meet the demands of the evolving Canadian healthcare system. Drs. Martin-Misener and Bryant-Lukosius should be commended for their vision as editors of this Special Issue of CJNL, and profiling some excellent work that has occurred across the country in this field of research...

As a prime example of the value of an interprofessional approach to care advocated by Orchard and colleagues earlier in this issue (Orchard 2017a, 2017b), the following case study profiles one highly effective interprofessional New Brunswick-based team which cares for clients and families in their homes; a model which has been functional and extremely successful for more than three decades and remains unparalleled in Canada.

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: There are promising signs that interprofessional collaborative practice is associated with quality care transitions and improved access to patient-centred healthcare. A one-day symposium was held to increase awareness and capacity to deliver quality collaborative care transitions to interprofessional health disciplines and service users. METHOD: A mixed methods study was used that included a pre-post survey design and interviews to examine the impact of the symposium on knowledge, attitudes and practice change towards care transitions and collaborative practice with symposium participants...

This paper presents a discussion on the key role that nurses assume with their patients and also with other health providers. We will argue that a change is needed to provide "space" for nurses to re-engage with their patients and to return to their key coordinating role between their patients, their family members and other health providers in interprofessional patient and family-centred collaborative practice. Furthermore, we will discuss the important role of nurse leaders to present the nurses' unique role and importance to health system administrators and policy makers to improve health outcomes of patients and how their role can concomitantly reduce healthcare costs...

The purpose of this paper is to present a perspective advocating for a dual role of nurse leaders as both managers and advocates for nurses to demonstrate their disciplinary knowledge and practice. Further, the paper will demonstrate that nurse leaders have the capacity to influence integration of interprofessional collaborative practice with other health professionals within their leadership areas. Additionally, we present strategies to advocate for changing the meaning of nursing leadership in practice, and creating a shift from task orientation of nurses' care to one that is individualized and comprehensive...

This paper focuses on the central role of senior nurse leaders in advancing organizational resources and support for communication between healthcare providers and carers that influences patient and carer outcomes during the transition from hospital to the community. A Think Tank (Lobchuk 2012) funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) gathered interdisciplinary and intersectoral stakeholders from local, national and international levels to develop a Family Carer Communication Research Collaboration...

Calls for transformational change of our healthcare system are increasingly clear, persuasive and insistent. They resonate at all levels, with those who fund, deliver, provide and receive care, and they are rooted in a deep understanding that the system, as currently rigidly structured, most often lacks the necessary flexibility to comprehensively meet the needs of patients across the continuum of care. The St. Joseph's Health System (SJHS) Integrated Comprehensive Care (ICC) Program, which bundles care and funding across the hospital to home continuum, has reduced fragmentation of care, and it has delivered improved outcomes for patients, providers and the system...

Our country's recent negotiations for a new Health Accord have shone light on the importance of more accessible and better home care. The direction being taken on health funding investments has sent a strong message about healthcare system redesign. It is time to design a healthcare system that moves us away from a hospital-focused model to one that is more effective, integrated and sustainable and one that places a greater emphasis on primary care, community care and home care. The authors of the lead paper (Sharkey and Lefebre 2017) provide their vision for people-powered care and explore the opportunity for nursing leaders to draw upon the unique expertise and insights of home care nursing as a strategic lever to bring about real health system transformation across all settings...

Sally Thorne, Kelli Stajduhar
In this commentary, Thorne and Stajduhar respond to Sharkey and Lefebre's (2017) thoughts on Bringing Nursing Back to the Future Through People-Powered Care by reflecting on the kinds of structural and ideological conditions that have dismantled the traditional root structure by which the nursing profession nurtured its members and optimized their inherent capacity as champions of placing patients at the centre of care. Although the idea of patient-centred care has great popular appeal in the current context, embedding it meaningfully into a transformed healthcare system will require dedicated attention to addressing the attitudes, discourses and leadership mechanisms within which strong systems of nursing can flourish and thrive...

At a time when there is a growing interest in person- and family-centred care and integrated community-based models, the unique strengths and expertise of home care nursing is a strategic lever for change across all healthcare settings. In this paper, we explore the theme of people-powered care as a universal starting point - a new approach to health and wellness that is anchored in the strengths of people, their networks and the patterns of everyday life. Leveraging key insights from home and community care, along with broader societal shifts towards personalization and empowerment, we discuss how nurses in all areas of the system can lead the way by empowering staff, patients and their families...

There is agreement across all provinces that there is transformation needed in the area of home and community care. Yet, where is the collective voice of nurse leaders in this transformation? The guest editor calls on nurses to respond to this unique opportunity to shape the transformation of our health system, and improve care for patients and their caregivers.

The editor-in-chief extends thanks to all contributors to this special focus on nursing leadership in home and community care. Thank you for leadership, thoughtful reflections and call to action. The possibilities for a different "person-centered", "people-powered" home and community-oriented health system can be realized with nursing at the helm.

To address increasing pressures for cancer survivorship care (CSC), provincial cancer agencies have introduced new models of post-treatment follow-up involving earlier transition of cancer survivors back to primary care (PC) providers. It is unknown how nurses in PC settings have responded to this practice change. The purpose of this qualitative descriptive study was to examine registered nurses' (RNs) perspectives of the strengths, gaps, barriers and opportunities for optimizing nursing roles in the delivery of CSC within PC settings...

During the Canadian federal election in 2015, we conducted a systematic inquiry into the methods and messages developed by national nursing organizations to communicate their policy platforms and their strategies for member and public engagement. Throughout the campaign and in the post-election period, the nursing organizations presented an outward-looking view to improve health and healthcare for Canadians. We observed ways in which they adopted a nursing lens on the issues by showcasing background research, by drawing on relevant nursing knowledge and by communicating clear policy messages based on nursing expertise...
