Abstract:
The world health organization has identified settings as crucial to health promotion and illness prevention. A 'setting for health' is: "The place or social context in which people engage in daily activities in which environmental, organizational and personal factors interact to affect health and well-being" (World Health Organization, 1998). In our quest to develop practice placements for students with children we began urban and rural placements in school settings in 2007, enhancing students' effectiveness and readiness to care for children and their families in whatever setting they encounter them. The definition of 'setting' to define placement opportunities for students allows the development of relationships beyond the walls of the acute care. It is the belief of the authors that health occurs through the relationships that develop between nurses and individuals, families and communities. We will present our interdisciplinary collaboration for development of child health placements. Collaborative relationships to facilitate this project have been developed between the University of Victoria (UVic) School of Nursing, Victoria School District #61, UVic School of Nursing's CAEN partner College of the Rockies School of Nursing, the Cranbrook School District, and respective Public Health agencies and representatives.
