Distributed Academic Health Sciences System (DAHSS)
The Saskatchewan Distributed Academic Health Sciences Framework has been developed. The main focus of the work going forward needs to be led by the post-secondary institutions themselves working with the Regional Health Authorities and Government Ministries. For more information please visit the DAHSS page of our website.
By 2014/2015, there will be approximately 3000 nursing students requiring clinical placements within the Saskatchewan healthcare system. There is a pressing need to understand the health system capacity, educational requirements and the opportunities and challenges of the clinical placement requirements of the Nursing programs in Saskatchewan. The Ministry of Health and the Saskatchewan Academic Health Sciences Network have agreed to co-fund the Nursing Clinical Mapping Project. More information on the project charter is available here.
The Nursing Mapping Project completed its data collection on May 17. Thank you to all partners who participated in both the survey and in the interviews. A Response rate of 50% ensures that we have heard from a representative group of Saskatchewan stakeholders. More information on the data collection process is found in the June 2013 update.
