Abstract:
This paper will describe the development and implementation of a unique Intersectoral, Interprofessional clinical Nursing Practicum experience. Primary impetus for development of this Practicum was to provide students an opportunity to experience a different paradigm, better understand unique health needs of children & youth. The Practicum s based on 2002 World Fit for Children and 2004 Canada Fit for Children, which makes healthy child development and treatment of children with citizen, rights a global priority. Using a holistic approach, students are challenged to examine vulnerability in terms of what happens to children (the outcomes) when exposed to challenges, rather than looking at risk factors alone. Further, they are: * encouraged to challenge existing boundaries within human services sector with the primary Purpose of improving "health for all"; * Advocate for multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary approaches * become part of a Community Development Program; * participate with community programs where students would typically not be sent; and * develop new understanding of primary health care and the determinants of health. The response and willingness of the community to participate in the Nursing Practicum has been overwhelming. Currently there are over 15 community partners, and this number continues to grow.
