52: You Had Me At Robot

Issac Asimov believed robots could have a true humanizing influence, and one day do the work to make life easier, freeing us to do the work that makes life worthwhile. For many nurses, caring for patients is that worthwhile work. However, studies have shown that roughly 30 percent of a nursing shift is devoted to patient care, with the rest given over to other tasks like finding medications, tracking down equipment, tracking down supplies, and documentation. So the question is, how can we give time back to nurses, so they can put patients—and themselves—first? It’s an urgent question, as the demands and pressures for health care efficiency continue to rise, while experienced nurses retire, nursing schools struggle to expand capacity, and the COVID pandemic stretches staffing to extreme limits. Enter Moxi, a robot—and patient selfie favorite—designed to help nurses complete routine, non-patient facing tasks. In this episode of Meeting of Minds, David Marshall, JD, DNP, RN, FAAN, senior vice president and chief nursing executive at Cedars Sinai and renowned social robotics expert, and Andrea Thomasz, PhD, CEO and co-founder of Diligent Robotics, sit down to discuss how nurses can lead interdisciplinary collaboration, the important role chief nursing officers can play in encouraging staff innovation, and the need for nurses to practice at the top of their license. At the center of their discussion is Moxi, a piece of technology designed to assist but never replace the priceless value and human interaction that nurses bring to patient care. Together, David, Andrea, and Moxi are proving that Nurse Robot Assistants can help reduce nurse fatigue and give nurses time back to care for patients, practice self-care, and focus on the big picture. Because no matter how advanced they become, robots don't take care of people. People take care of people. Email us at [email protected] For additional resources, visit our website at www.seeyounowpodcast.com.

What is Grief?

This episode is part one of a two-part discussion about grief. Divorce, career change, loss of a child or parent, or loss of a colleague are all experiences that can lead to grief. People experience grief differently, and it can be particularly challenging for people working in healthcare.   Lizzie Pickering is a grief investigator. Lizzie's work is based on being alongside grieving parents at the children's hospice world, setting up peer-to-peer support and navigating her own grief following the death of her son, Harry 20 years ago.  In this first part of our conversation, Lizzie explains the stages of grief and shares some practical tips on how to talk about grief with patients, families and colleagues.  Be sure to follow this podcast on your favorite podcast player to receive updates when part 2 of this conversation goes live.

51: The Planet is Our Patient

The health of our planet is in serious condition. Climate change is anticipated to result in increasingly warmer global temperatures, more extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. Without accelerated intervention and broad scale innovation across all economic sectors, we face devastating effects on global water and food supplies, critical infrastructure and supply chains, physical and mental health, and a less certain future. Understanding the impacts of climate change on human health is vitally important for the global population. You can’t have healthy people without a healthy environment: something that health professionals today increasingly understand. Just as nurses are skilled at turning around a health crisis that humans can experience -- they’re also well trained and ideally positioned for addressing the critical condition of our planet. In this episode we meet Teddie Potter, PhD, RN, FAAN, Director of Planetary Health for the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota to learn how nurses can and are reducing greenhouse emissions, find out why educating girls is key to a healthier planet, and discover who the best intergenerational storytellers are for helping us understand our relationship to and stewardship of the planet and where to innovate to improve its health. Email us at [email protected] For additional resources, visit our website at www.seeyounowpodcast.com.
