My apologies for the lack of “blogging” lately. It seems the summer months are over before you’ve even realized they’ve begun…

I, along with our Nurse Practitioner (NP), Mikki Millar, was honoured to be asked to speak at the annual Alberta College of Pharmacy and Alberta Association of Registered Nurses conference, the first weekend in June in Jasper. This joint conference is a first of its kind in Canada, and featured the theme “The Power of Partnerships — Charting New Courses”. Mikki and I were asked to share experiences from the Leader Diabetes Initiative, with a focus on the teamwork and partnerships that it requires. To view a copy of our presentation, click here.

Kudos to both the ACP and AARN for their initiative in hosting a joint conference…Hopefully it has set the example for other health professions and associations to follow!
