2 Page 2 CRITICAL CONNECTIONS President s Message Hello Members, it has been a very busy year for the Executive members of the Toronto Chapter. The fiscal year has come to an end. Over the last year our Chapter offered four successful workshops for the CNA Critical Care review exam and for colleagues looking for a general review and of course a successful Evolutions 2013 conference. We will continue to strive for improvement from the member s suggestions and feedback. The members are who make the Toronto Chapter so please continue to support your Chapter and bring forth your great ideas. Many of our Toronto Chapter colleagues received great award honours at Dynamics Please continue doing great work everyone no hard work every goes unnoticed. We are in the process of preparing for Evolutions 2014 at a great new intimate venue centrally located with accessibility to the Yonge/Bloor Subway line, Go-Transit or driving if you wish. We are encouraging you to spread the word about Evolutions 2014 to members and non members. Please take a moment to browse our new updated website at for further information on Evolutions and the Toronto Chapter. The theme for Evolutions 2014 & the Toronto Chapter for is Knowledge is Power and as critical care nurses we definitely showcase this across our region. Sharing knowledge, networking with peers, colleagues and mentors in the critical care community is a major reason why the Toronto Chapter of the CACCN is here for our members to keep you abreast of what s new in critical care. The Toronto Chapter covers a large area; from East to Peterborough, West to Guelph, North to North Bay, GTA, Toronto and Southwest to Hamilton. The upcoming year will continue to be challenging. As a Chapter as we continue to have challenges with retention and recruitment of membership. We have had a drop in membership but Toronto Chapter Executive is committed to meeting the challenge of increasing our numbers. We will continue to recruit new members and entice current members to stay on and have a voice for the Executive and to bring practice issues and knowledge to the critical care community locally & across Canada. The Executive will continue to offer professional development sessions but our goal for the year is to be able to offer multimodal educational methods (on-line, in-person, and hybrid system possibly) to meet the needs of all our members to get them the knowledge they entrust on us. Critical Care is no longer hospitals working independently and no one knows what one institution is doing from another. Critical Care is now a close knit community where we share, exchange and network together to ensure we provide each one of us with evidence based knowledge and up-to-date practice issues to enhance our care to improve on quality indicators, patient safety, family, clients and staff well-being. The Toronto Chapter Executive is committed to listening, mobilizing knowledge, innovation and adapting to the changing needs of this intergenerational profession and community. If you have any suggestions for your Executive team to make us even better or suggest improvements please feel free to us at On behalf of your Toronto Chapter Executive for (Ingrid, Karen, Natalia, Teresa, Alicia, Sharran, Primrose, Christine) we would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to our members who continue to support the success of the Toronto Chapter. Please check us out on Face-book and Twitter. Thanks Ingrid Daley Reflective Thought for upcoming session : We don t accomplish anything in this world alone and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one s life and all the weavings of individual threads form one to another that creates something Sandra Day O Connor

3 CRITICAL CONNECTIONS Page 3 Message from our Evolutions Chair Karen Bennett It's that time of year again as we look forward to the Evolutions Conference - Knowledge Is Power. We have a diverse group of speakers discussing current issues within Critical Care. This year we have a new intimate venue located at The Bram & Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library. It is easily accessible by subway from the Bloor Danforth line, and has accommodation for 400 people. The Marriot Hotel is near by allowing you to come early or stay late and spend the night. Look forward to seeing you all there. The Toronto Chapter would like to thank all sponsors and vendors for their ongoing support. The Chapter is pleased to announce Gluckstein and Associated as our platinum sponsor for Evolutions starting and on wards. Message from our Education Chair Alicia Jones Canadian Association of Critical Nurses (CACCN) Toronto Chapter experienced a wonderful year. We were able to have two workshops in the fall and winter. The reviews were focused on the neuroendocrine and cardiovascular systems. Overall, it was well attended by critical care nurses, emergency room nurses, stroke and rehabilitation nurses, telemetry nurses, students, new grads and nurses preparing for the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) exam. The Education Chair will continue to plan workshops in the winter. Articles have been added to our website for your own convenient reading. Message from our Web Master Sharran Wong It has been a busy and productive year so far for me. With feedback from the Executive Committee, We came up with a clean, crisp and professional design for our web site, which is now complete. Several changes have been made to make navigating throughout the website easier and clearer. More pictures will be added soon. We hope you enjoy it. Message from our Editor Teresa Robitaille Being the Editor for the Toronto Chapter has been a very rewarding experience. I have met many people during my four years, and have made changes to the way in which we communicate to our members. The Go Green platform had many aches and pains. This initiative allowed the Chapter to cut out the cost of postage and envelopes for quarterly newsletters as well as save on unnecessary usage of paper. With the help of the Executive, I was able to successfully develop a newsletter that was sent via to all members. The newsletter was produced quarterly, until recently when it was decided that the newsletter would be produced twice a year (April and October). We have maintained good communication with our chapter members via our Gmail account. As I end my four years as Chapter Editor I would like to thank all of the past and present Executive members for their encouragement and assistance, but also a big thank you to our members for your continued support. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
