As nurses, we know that we put ourselves at risk when working in different health-care settings; we witness trauma, suffering and death on a regular basis and sometimes we may experience physical violence. That’s why RNAO is urging the provincial government to amend Bill 163 immediately to improve access to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment for nurses.

    Now is your chance to buy RNAO's best practice guidelines (BPG) 50 per cent off and take advantage of evidence-based tools that can help you with your practice.

    Guidelines that are on sale include Primary Prevention of Childhood Obesity, Interventions for Postpartum Depression, and Workplace Health, Safety and Well-being of the Nurse.

    To buy RNAO's BPGs or for more information, please go to RNAO's BPG webpage. For assistance, please call or email Julie Burris at 416-907-7965.

    With June almost here, RNs, NPs and nursing students can help raise awareness about elder abuse by letting others know that World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is June 15.

    To show your support for this important day, you and your organization can encourage staff, visitors, and clients/residents to wear purple, host an awareness raising event, and hold a celebration to promote dignity and respect for older adults.

    To see other ways you can get involved or to register your event, please visit the Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse website.
