National Nursing Week and Dynamic Health in Practice

National Nursing Week is May 6-12, 2024, and this year's theme is Changing Lives. Shaping Tomorrow.

Dynamic Health™ in Practice: RSV from EBSCO on Vimeo.

Watch in this video as Dynamic Health supports the decision making and skill development needs of a nurse and her nurse resident during their shift as they deliver exceptional care to a young patient suffering from Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) and their mother.

In actual practice, Dynamic Health flexes from Changing Lives and providing nurses with current guidance for urgent care, to Shaping Tomorrow and supporting learners with acquiring or updating practice skills through clear procedures and checklists.

Dynamic Health is available to all Nova Scotia Health staff from the Intranet’s Clinical Applications page or Library Services website. Save the friendly URL (https://library.nshealth.ca/dynamic-health) to your desktop or mobile device home screens for easy access. Once you make a personal account, you can also install the app on your mobile device for consistent access without internet connectivity.

Could your care team benefit from getting support from our team with integrating Dynamic Health into your day-to-day work, competency requirements or policy/procedure documents? Reach out to DynamicHealth@nshealth.ca. We’re ready to connect and put this tool to work for you.
