      The Nursing Leadership and Capacity Building in the context of Primary Health Care partnership brought together Brazilian and Canadian partners to address the professional development needs of primary health care nurses working on family health teams and helped facilitate knowledge translation and exchange in nursing practice, research, and education.

      This first ever nursing collaboration in primary health care between the University of Toronto and Brazilian Ministry of Health and university and health care partners in the Brazilian states of Acre and Mato Grosso do Sul advanced leadership and helped build capacity for nursing professional development. Leadership was fostered by providing practice-relevant and research-based education and training to nurses who oversee the planning, implementation and evaluation of primary health care programs in the aforementioned States. The Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing (LSBFON) is the university partner for the first ever international primary health care initiative dedicated to nursing development in Brazil.
