Who can post and share projects on Care Challenge?

 

Care Challenge is opened to licensed nurses anywhere in the world with a great idea.

 

Why posting on Care Challenge?

 

Care Challenge is an opportunity for licensed nurses around the world to bring their ideas to life and gain recognition from their professional community worldwide.
The platform aims at creating a community around nursing innovation.

You will be able to showcase your creativity and innovations on the web platform and share your work with colleagues worldwide.

The Care Challenge will enable health care professionals to quickly grasp new ideas about care giving or patient self-management of disease and put them into practice.

Moreover, each year a Reviewing Committee of Nurses evaluates the projects and chooses to highlight some of them. These projects become the Connecting Nurses Favorites, and can get either a promotional support or a one-time financial contribution. The Connecting Nurses partners may also take interest in supporting particular projects. To know more about the ways your project can be supported, have a look at the "about" tab.

If you have an idea that you believe will significantly improve the lives of patients, their family and friends, and/or nurses, Care Challenge offers an incredible opportunity to communicate and develop your idea to make it real and recognized.

 

What kind of projects is the Care Challenge platform focusing on?

 

Project characteristics:

  • Any nurse-led project carried out by a nurse (or a team of nurses & health care providers) which results improve the monitoring of disease by patients, especially chronic disease
  • Nursing innovations in patient self-management of disease
  • Nursing innovations in e-health, mobile health and telemedicine
  • Projects that are led in collaboration with patient organizations
  • Innovations that address the global care of patients with chronic disease
  • Innovations aiming at raising awareness on vaccine-preventable diseases or diseases preventable by access to medicine
  • Innovations that improve access to medicine and vaccine

That said, any idea that will improve the lives of nurses and patients, family and friends is welcomed.

Be careful: although Care Challenge encourages disease related projects, due to legal constraints, the projects (including supporting media/documents) shall not refer or relate to identified or identifiable pharmaceutical or vaccine products or medical devices.
