Marta Fernandez, RN, MSN, MPM, Innovation and Research Nursing Coordinator at the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu in Barcelona, Spain, competed in the Innovation in Nursing Education category with The 5-Minute Program, which integrates interactive continuing education into clinical activity within the work place to promote active and collaborative learning. Thus far, the project has distributed 88 five-minute, high quality video education sessions including topics related to patient safety, electronic health records, and patient education. This innovative approach utilizes bite-sized, focused education sessions supporting the nurse’s ability to synthesize content and apply it directly to practice.

Michelle Dang, PhD, RN, APHN-BC, an assistant professor at California State University, Sacramento, competed in the Innovation in Nursing Practice category with HealthShack, a personal health record technology for homeless youth. Because it is web-based, HealthShack can be accessed anywhere and is a safe place to store personal health records, birth certificates, immunization records, and other important documents. In the last three years, hundreds of homeless youths have created HealthShack accounts, stored documents and received interventions from RN and BSN students completing community health course requirements.
