#68 Innovation in Supporting Well-Being and Mental Health for Nurses featuring Dr. Dan Weberg
In this episode we interview Dr. Dan Weberg. Dan is the Head of Clinical Innovation for Trusted Health. Dan is also the host of The Handoff Podcast, which focuses on critical topics in nursing that are usually not talked about.
Dan says, “You don’t have to be an innovator to lead innovation.”
At the start of the interview Dan shares how Trusted Health is like a combo of LinkedIn and Match.com for nurses.
Dan points out Trusted Health’s goal is to “be the single source for nurses to manage their professional lives.”
During our interview with Dan we explore the results from Trusted Health’s survey on Frontline Nurse Mental Health and Well-Being. Dan notes the survey of over 1400 nurses across all 50 states indicated that while nurses felt their well-being was declining and they didn’t feel supported by their facilities, they remained committed to nursing. The results also reveal the issue is systemic and not about whether nurses are committed.
Another point we discuss with Dan is the need for leaders to be prepared and equipped with skills, including mental, spiritual, and physical health, so they can handle stressful situations that arise.
Dan also shares with us the innovative partnership Trusted Health engaged in with The Ohio State University to provide coaching and support for nurses while at the same time enabling Nurse Practitioner students to acquire clinical hours.
This is an interesting and informative interview, as you’ll undoubtedly determine when you listen!
