- “Nursing to achieve organizational performance: Consider the role of nursing intellectual capital” – Alexandra Harris
Abstract: The success and performance of healthcare organizations relies on the strategic management of knowledge. Nursing Intellectual Capital (NIC) has emerged as a concept involving nursing knowledge resources that create value in healthcare organizations. This article aims to discuss the importance of considering knowledge resources in the context of healthcare performance, with specific reference to NIC. Reflections are then provided on how leaders can look to advance NIC for improved performance.
- “From primary nurse to collaborative nursing care team: Early feedback on a new model” – Kathleen Klaasen, Tracy Groenewegen, Lori A. Mitchell, and Sandy Wilson
Abstract: This article discusses key findings from a preliminary review of a nursing care delivery model implemented in Winnipeg, Manitoba, by the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority Home Care Program in 2014. Results suggest that the model is generally seen positively by staff but challenging to implement, given established administrative practices. To meet future demands on the healthcare system, home care programs need policies and procedures that empower nurses to perform as true community health nurses.
- T1: What types of nursing intellectual capital (knowledge in people, structures and relationships) need to be leveraged more in healthcare?

- T3: Should the distribution of nurses in rural areas be based on geography?
