104: Practicing Green Health

Imagine – healthy people living in equitable and resilient communities on a thriving planet! That’s the vision of Practice Greenhealth, a sustainability network delivering environmental solutions to more than 1,700 hospitals and health systems in the US and Canada. Healthcare sustainability is important work – if the healthcare sector were a country, it would be the fifth largest carbon emitter on the planet. The impact of environmental factors on human health is apparent now more than ever. The World Health Organization estimates that improved environmental conditions could prevent nearly a quarter of global diseases, citing climate change as a global public health threat. Healthcare leaders are recognizing the operational, strategic, financial and health equity importance of sustainability and resilience practices and taking impressive action in reducing their organization’s environmental footprint, waste, greenhouse gas emissions, and more. In this episode, we learn from clinical experts and sustainability champions Shanda Demorest DNP, RN, PHN, Jonathan Perlin MD, PhD, Jessica Wolff MBA, MSN, Emma Pascale Blakey PhD, RN, and Beth Schenk PhD, MHI, RN-BC how healthcare as a sector is leaning into the generational demand and momentum for environmental stewardship in healthcare and about the vast array of tools, resources, and examples of practicing green health sustainably.

Listen Again | 72: Marathons with Meaning

We’re cheering on runners in the 2024 Boston Marathon this week by having another listen to our episode featuring Nurse Practitioner, elite runner, and Guinness World Record holder, Samantha Roecker, FNP. A competitive runner and nurse, she has a *track record* (pun intended) of breaking barriers and addressing stigmas, and for the 2022 Boston Marathon, she combined her passion for nursing and running into mental health advocacy and raising awareness for healthcare workforce well-being. Inspired by British nurse and marathon record holder, Jessica Anderson, Sam embarked on a bold goal – breaking the Guinness World Record for fastest marathon run in a nurse’s uniform and raising thousands of dollars to support nurse well-being. In this episode, we talk with Samantha about her record-breaking run, the impact stigma has on seeking mental health services and preventing people from reaching their potential, the power of nurse-specific mental health support, and the surprising overlap between nursing and competitive running.    Find this episode’s resources at www.seeyounowpodcast.com and for more information on podcast bundles, visit ANA’s Innovation Website at www.nursingworld.org/innovation.

Update | 96: Addressing Moral Distress Across the Healthcare Workforce

March 2024 marks two years since President Biden signed into law the Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act. This landmark, first-of-its-kind legislation has funded more than $100 million in grants to implement strategies to reduce and prevent burnout, stress and suicide, sustain well-being, and build workplace cultures and practices so our healthcare workforce can thrive!    The law and the recent bipartisan resolution designating March 18th as Health Workforce Well-Being Day of Awareness is keeping the spotlight and urgency on this workforce crisis and helping reduce stigma, advance research, and ensure that those who care for us can get the care they need.   So we’re having another listen to this episode recorded Live at Aspen Ideas: Health in 2023 where an expert panel led by nurse economist Shawna Butler, RN, MBA, vividly describes how many of our health workplaces and practices are exhausting, overly burdensome, and causing moral distress. Kathy Howell, MBA, BSN, RN, NEA-BC, former Chief Nurse Executive, UCHealth; Corey Feist, President and Co-Founder, Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes' Foundation; and Iman Abuzeid, CEO and Co-Founder, Incredible Health, provide insight into what healthcare talent is seeking from their careers, how forward-leaning health executives are responding to market conditions and workforces that have dramatically shifted, and the readily available system level policy changes urgently needed to support and sustain a thriving health workforce.
