Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Environments off-campus are less structured, predictable, and controllable. Collaboration by the Environmental Health Office, International Nursing Office, and Undergraduate and Graduate Programs facilitated development of best practice standards for Faculty of Nursing off-campus activities. Working Group members analyzed policies, procedures, and resources for promoting health and safety of undergraduate and graduate students, visiting or newly recruited faculty, and faculty who were travelling locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Activities included: clinical placements, teaching, exchanges, research data collection, consultations, and service. A grid facilitated analysis. Grid columns included: identified hazards, rationale for selecting hazards, resources and actions to minimize hazards, individuals at-risk, identified gaps, and individuals responsible for taking action. Rows addressed travel by land or air, working alone, exposure to occupational hazards, use of equipment, and administration. Three themes emerged: ethical issues underlie all activities; responsibility for action is dispersed among institutions: the Faculty, University Departments, Regional Health authorities, Professional Association, and Governments; and resources are available but scattered. Identified gaps included: recognition of ethical issues, mechanisms for ensuring individuals obtain information, and a system of regular review and evaluation of standards for off-campus practices. Shared leadership is required for ensuring due diligence.
