All InspireNet members are welcome to join this Action Team.


This action team promotes the collaboration and engagement of nurses working in and with First Nations communities. Our goal is to collaborate with key nursing stakeholders implementing innovative prevention, care and treatment education in their respective community settings in order to identify key areas for evaluation and dissemination of best practices through electronic forums such as WebEx, Blogs, and Wikis. This group intends to inform practice and influence policy in a proactive way.
