Full Text: Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand's pilot journal club is Launched in this issue, with a student piece on an ethical dilemma, Working through an ethical dilemma (p12-13), as the inaugural discussion article.

The purposes of the on-line journal club, co-ordinated by NZNO's professional services manager Susanne Trim, include professional development opportunities for members, with education hours able to be attributed for recognition of continuing competence; to stimulate debate and discussion and strengthen members' engagement with NZNO; to contribute to NZNO policy development; and to enhance NZNO's professional profile.

Trim will act as the mediator during the four-month trial and provide trigger questions to initiate discussion. She will also view and approve all member contributions, which could take up to three days, before they are posted on the website. Members' contributions should be Limited to a page.

The online discussion will begin the week the magazine is posted to members and will close the week before distribution of the next month's issue. A brief summary of the key discussion themes will be posted at the end of each month.

Trim said this was an exciting initiative for NZNO and Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand and she urged members to get involved in the on-line debate and discussion. "It offers members an opportunity for practice reflection and to be involved in professional debate with others all around the country. It has enormous potential for members' professional development, as well as making connections with others who have similar professional interests," she said.

Each month the discussion article will be identified with the journal club logo (left).

The journal club can be found on NZNO's website: www.nzno.org.nz/site/journalclub. aspx. Links to the journal club discussion can also be found on the Kai Tiaki and Member-Only pages of the website. Members will need their NZNO membership number to access the discussion pages, which will have the trigger questions posted.

The discussion pages for the February issue are Live from February 16.
