    In 2012, four regulators from Western Canada,  the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA), the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC), the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba, and  the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association worked with OutsideIn, a Vancouver based brand and communications company.  Initially conceived as a joint branding project, the work resulted in the creation of an aspirational vision of becoming relational regulators and a substantial cultural change within each organization.  Over the last 4 years, CARNA and CRNBC have been continuing on their work to execute and implement relational regulation approaches.  This webinar will discuss shared learnings and individual case studies from CARNA and CRNBC about the journey to date.


    The Regulatory Administration information-sharing webinars offer the opportunity to gain knowledge about a particular topic and then engage in open dialogue, discussion and networking with the presenters and fellow attendees.  The phone lines will be open to allow for discussion of questions and comments from attendees.


    Offerings are presented through a web-based PowerPoint and audio teleconference, allowing attendees to participate and ask questions from their own office or conference room.  Using a speakerphone and PowerPoint at your location, you can have multiple attendees for one registration. Attendees receive a copy of the PowerPoint presentation after the webinar.

    Presenters:

    Elizabeth Elliot, senior manager of practice, registrant learning, and quality assurance, College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia

    Margaret Jack-Ward, director, communications and government affairs, College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta

    Excellence in the education and training of future experts is crucial to the success of all professions. Extensive efforts have therefore been made to explore expertise, with the aim of translating understanding of expert performance into more effective expert development. In the expertise literature, over the last half-century, the accrual and organization of an extensive knowledge base has become widely recognized by educators and researchers as the foundation for expertise and expert performance. As our understanding of expertise has expanded to include previously unexplored facets of expert performance, the particular role of knowledge in expert development and practice is being increasingly revisited. In particular, the ability of practitioners to not only apply their repertoire of knowledge to problems they face, but to also deal with novel, emergent or unexpected problems of practice effectively and use these experiences as the basis for a process of continual learning, is not adequately accounted for by models of expertise that conceptualize problem solving as the application of an acquired database of knowledge. This presentation will explore the different ways knowledge is conceptualized in models of expert development and practice and discuss implications for continuing competence.


    Offerings are presented through a web-based PowerPoint and audio teleconference, allowing attendees to participate and ask questions from their own office or conference room.  Using a speakerphone and PowerPoint at your location, you can have multiple attendees for one registration fee. Attendees receive a copy of the PowerPoint presentation after the webinar.  Webinar attendees can also choose to purchase the webinar recording at a discounted rate when registering.

    Presenter:

    Dr. Maria Mylopoulos' research program explores the development and maintenance of adaptive expertise, with a particular focus on how health professionals deal with uncertainty and novelty in their daily problem solving. The aim of her research is to evolve understanding of processes that underpin adaptive expertise as it occurs in real-world contexts using theoretical frameworks of clinical reasoning, knowledge building and distributed cognition. The ultimate goal of her research is to translate this understanding to educational design that promotes the development of adaptive expertise.
