About the CL'cK Initiative

Connecting Learners with Knowledge (CL'cK) is an innovative approach to connecting front-line health care staff with the knowledge they need to improve outcomes for their clients.

The CL'cK initiative was developed to explore alternative and innovative ways of meeting the continuing and specialty education needs of nurses in BC, and is focused on overcoming the barriers that exist between frontline staff and the knowledge they require to meet the complex needs of their clients.

It is funded by the BC Health Education Fund and sponsored by the Provincial Home and Community Care Council - six Health Authorities are also participating in the pilot.
The project has four components:

Technology - The development of a personalized learning web site for clinician / learners through which relevant knowledge can be accessed and shared, programs can be accessed and on-line support from other clinician / learners can be provided.

Learning Facilitators - a role focused on supporting the clinician/ learner in acquiring the skills necessary to access relevant knowledge via the web site and apply that knowledge appropriately into their work setting.

Communities of Practice - establishing a network of practitioners who share an interest in the clinical competencies and skills necessary to practice and who shepherd the knowledge generated from their practice.

Supportive Learning Culture - supporting organizational leaders in developing a supportive learning culture within their workplace.
