2019 – ‘Endowment Fund Awards – An Innovative Wellness Strategy for New Nurses at SickKids’ and ‘Apparent Cause Analysis’

An Innovative Wellness Strategy for New Nurses at SickKids

Team: Ann chang, Kelly McNaughton, Karen Breen-Ried, Bonnie Fleming-Carroll, Grace Garvey

Proposal: From hectic all night shifts to high-stakes surgeries, nursing is stressful. To mitigate some of this stress, this winning group is developing education sessions to ‘facilitate mental health awareness and well-being in new nurse hires’ at three 2019 Paediatric Nursing Orientations.

A summary report of their findings will be published here in the fall of 2020.


Apparent Cause Analysis

Team: Mollie Lavigne, Shagan Aujla, Andrea Boysen

Proposal: Accidents happen. But most can be avoided. That’s why SickKids launched Caring Safely in 2015 and it’s why these nurses are studying ‘Precursor and Near Miss events’. By analyzing their root causes, this team will empower clinicians and administrators to reduce harm. That way our nurses will be safer- – and so will our patients.
