We have been very fortunate in obtaining a one-time only, joint grant awarded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and Canadian Institutes of Health Research on the Healthy and Productive Workplace. It is a partnership grant and so we have brought together the partners with whom we have been working with for the past 18 months. This is a two-phase grant: Phase 1 is to create the partnership, do some pilot work, and consider how to scale up the project. This phase is for two years. The “carrot” is the second phase of the grant. Only those who have been awarded a Phase 1 grant are eligible to apply for Phase 2. Phase 2 is to scale up the project. Phase 2 is a 5-year grant and will be awarded to 2.5 Million dollars. Partnerships have been given and of the 20 partnerships, eight will be given for Phase 2.

Over the years there have been a number of solutions put forward on how to humanize our disease-centric, deficit-based, medically driven health care system to make it more responsive to the health care needs of its citizens.
Patient/Family-Centered Care, Empowerment, Collaboration, Health Promotion and most recently, Patient Engagement, and Patient Experiences have become part of the new lexicon of 21st-century health care delivery. Yet our system remains largely unchanged because its theoretical foundations have remained unaltered. Few know how to translate these ideals into reality. Yet, the way forward is apparent: what all of the proposed solutions have in common is a focus on people's strengths.
The International Institute for Strengths-Based Nursing & Health Care is dedicated to educating, training and researching Strengths-Based Nursing to bring about a sea change in attitudes, behavior, and culture that will create a comprehensive, compassionate, and caring health care system.
