Each of the following core business services and deliverables are offered by the MNCYN to both the perinatal and pediatric programs.
“As a Nurse Practitioner, I would have loved to have this education at the beginning of my NP program. It helps to organize assessment and intervention in a concise and comprehensive way.”
“Honestly, I found every aspect of this workshop useful. I am so happy to have attended and feel more confident now in my ability to stabilize a newborn while awaiting consultation team.”
“This is, far and away, the most favorite and relevant course I have engaged in. I will recommend it for sure. Thank you!”
“Most topics discussed were related to actual clinical practice; this is why it is so important for an instructor of this type of course to have relevant and extensive nursing practice experience. This makes the difference between learning theoretically as a nursing student, versus learning as a graduate, practicing nurse - we are learning to improve clinical practice, not to memorize and pass a test, this was done very well, nursing interventions, assessments, evaluations, etc. were emphasized well.”
“All content was very instructional and will enhance the care I provide to clients and patients.”
“I find the MNCYN reviews incredibly helpful for debriefing and learning. I wish it happened more with other critically ill patients I sent out.”
"I support the virtual platform. It worked well. I really value this program and always make an effort to attend this event, keep it up!”
"Interesting multidisciplinary interaction. I really appreciate hearing back about cases we refer to the tertiary centre – it helps to understand how WE can help YOU."
"Great to see you all – always fab evidence based information. I enjoyed the session very much and appreciate the effort you make to attend to us. I also appreciate the information that we are able to access from the tertiary facility."
"Many thanks for making the trip here to see us. Great team – able to answer all questions in a clear and efficient manner. Excellent, as always."
“We really enjoy coming to these meetings. They are very valuable and give us a lot of information to take back to our hospitals.”
“Great experiential learning. I loved the simulation. The day was well structured and instructors are very knowledgeable and engaged with the needs of the group.”
“I will be able to apply and interpret EFM and request assistance in doing so, as I am just starting out in obstetrics nursing.”
“Very well taught – organized and thorough. Really enhanced my knowledge to better interpret tracings!"
"This Program is valued by all nurses, midwives and physicians who practice in our facility. Our questions are well received and the Team always provide suggestions in a constructive manner. The staff interaction with the team fosters positive relationships with our tertiary care colleagues, which is very helpful for us in providing the best patient care that we can as a Level I facility.”
“The [regional chart] forms, developed by the Southwestern Ontario Perinatal Partnership Program... have cut an estimated 2 hours of charting down to 20 minutes. As one of our Doctors put it “we love these forms”. Please than the committee responsible for all their hard work developing the forms. We appreciate your efforts.”
“Finished the course and I will say I learned or re learned a lot, what an amazing review. I liked that it went thru the systems; at times it was challenging and had me on to google reading up on things I have forgotten or perhaps never did know. I’ve taken so many great notes. Loved being able to work on it on my own time and would be interested in other courses that you may have to offer."
“Thank you for a great introductory meeting. I am looking forward to continued engagement in producing better outcomes through best practice. It was great to network with our regional partners, gain resources and see what everyone is working on. I was impressed with the wealth of information provided."
“Thanks for your commitment to advancing the knowledge base to others and helping smaller centres grow in order to remove barriers to accessing opportunities to learn.”
"Amazing keynote presentation. Well done presentations on culturally sensitive hospital environment and trauma-informed skills. Communication and team effectiveness presentation was so good! Really appreciated such a rich learning day. "
Governance of the Maternal, Newborn, Child and Youth Network in Southwestern Ontario is handled by the MNCYN Executive Director, the Regional Leader, a Regional Steering Committee consisting of representatives from our Partner organizations, and an Executive Committee.
The following dispute resolution process shall be used to address and resolve conflicts.
As a first step, the parties directly involved will work to resolve the conflict using a non-mediated approach. If this does not resolve the conflict, the parties involved are required to provide written notice to the Regional Leader. The Executive Director will request that the Executive Committee help resolve the conflict no later than within 30 days of the written request. If the conflict involves the Executive Committee or the Regional Steering Committee, a mutually agreeable third party will, as required, be asked to mediate the dispute. The third party shall be acceptable to both parties. The cost of a mediator will be divided equally among the parties involved. Any dispute not resolved through mediation shall be settled through arbitration in accordance with the Arbitrations Act (Ontario) by a single arbitrator. If the parties are not able to agree upon an arbitrator, the selection of the arbitrator will be governed by the Arbitrations Act (Ontario). The award of the arbitrator shall be final and conclusive upon the parties and judgment upon such award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Unless the parties otherwise agree, the place of arbitration shall be London, Ontario.
