Who I am Use of CTB
I am a lecturer in the School of Nursing at Otago Polytechnic in New Zealand. I coordinate the BN 3rd year primary health care nursing course, and the clinical placement for all nursing students for this paper is working with identified communities to identify vulnerable groups and health issues related to them. For this students complete a community scan by using the Community as Partner (Anderson & Mcfarlane; Battye et.al, 2006) framework, consult with key stakeholders/partners for the vulnerable group (often migrants, youth, rural health or ethnic minorities e.g. Maori) in the community. Health needs (e.g. mental health, poor access to health care, sexual health etc.) are identified and resources are developed e.g. websites, pamphlets, submissions etc.
I came across your site while researching resources the students could use, and can see the application of this in our programme.
I am writing to gain permission to share the Tool Box with the students. I see this as an adjunct or addition to my teaching and support for students learning.
Not currently using it, but see the benefits of using aspects of the Tool Box. The students are undergraduate and have only 4 weeks to complete their placement.

My wife, Susan, and I are entrepreneurs with the goal of helping people of all backgrounds and levels of education activate their creative potential. Creativity is not only for the eccentric elite - its for everyone. We use scientific data and anecdotal corroboration to build fun, engaging presentations and programs to help individuals and organizations realize the amazing powers of creativity within.
CTB's information on Logic Modeling has been particularly helpful in educating teams on the foundations of creative output and creative process. We are looking forward to accessing your library of helpful information in the immediate and long term future. I am also curious about partnership opportunities, or official Community Toolbox Certifications - is this something that is available for private firms to pursue?

I'd like to start a boycott of money and banks to end the use of the monetary enslavement of the human race. We have the technology and resources to grow as a society without money and corruption. This may also include a boycott of gas, jobs, shopping, and television. Billionaires and corporations rule this world and it's gone on for far too long. People are starving, they're homeless, they die from poisoning of waters and air and lack of healthcare. We need to stand together and resist our governments that put us in this position.

I am a late bloomer. I sent myself back to school at 54 to put a name on what I've learned in my nursing career. I work with non-federally recognized Native American people who are interspersed in a variety of community settings. Starting at point A was a transition of learning and developing relationships. It has been a non-linear experience.
The information the site offers is deeply appreciated. Very concise and condensed library of material that I know I've probably crossed in the past several years. Now, hoping to graduate with a DNP in Transcultural nursing, I've found myself referring to cultural competence section to see how I've done. If I did the right things and can enjoy integrity in what we've accomplished so far. Although the outlines and chapters are quite linear, it's good that its an "open book" (laughing) or else, I started off with the wrong foot. The tool box provides a system of checks, balances and next thoughts when I need that extra boost.

Currently I am entitled as an agile coach, but I still have a tons of things to learn and decades to experience to be really who i am currently.
Currently I am creating a unique scrum master survey. The surveys unique because each question only has good answers. those are ranked however so there is good,better, even better, even more better, almost the best and probably best types. This will help the applicant to receive instant 4 other good options to be try out at her scrum teams. The goal is to improve and coach online via a survey tons of people to build better teams. For the SM patterns it is a great help to read the servant leader chapter.
I am pretty sure that I will come back for some other stuff later.
