A sleep expert shares her best tips for nurses

What is the ideal interval between shift rotations? Does splitting sleep work? How long is the ideal nap? What’s the difference between a power nap and a restorative nap?  On this episode of The Handoff, Dan is joined by Washington State University Professor Lois James, who is an expert on the role of sleep in performance. She and Dan speak about the ways in which the culture of nursing is often in conflict with good sleep habits. She shares some very practical fatigue countermeasures, as well as strategies that hospitals and nurse leaders can take to optimize shift lengths for their staff.  Dr. James’s other research interest is racism and implicit bias in healthcare, and she also speaks about the dangers of implicit bias in nursing, how those biases are formed and strategies for overcoming them.  Links to recommended reading:  https://nursing.wsu.edu/  https://dailyevergreen.com/8362/news/sleep-and-racial-bias-affect-police-officer-judgement/ https://www.researchgate.net/publication/290437363_The_Reverse_Racism_Effect_Are_Cops_More_Hesitant_to_Shoot_Black_Than_White_Suspects https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=QW-xUh4AAAAJ&hl=en https://news.wsu.edu/2014/09/02/deadly-force-lab-finds-racial-disparities-in-shootings/ https://www.trustedhealth.com/blog/sickness-sleep-nurses-nightshift  https://www.trustedhealth.com/blog/nurse-stress-sleep-not-anymore  The full transcript for this episode can be found here:  www.trustedhealth.com/the-handoff-podcast/lois-james

092: Stem Cell Transplant Recipient Revée Agyepong is Sickle-Cell-Free

Revée Agyepong is a registered nurse specializing in neonatal intensive care and based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She currently works in the Pediatric Hematology Clinic at the Stollery Children’s Hospital as the Sickle Cell Disease Nurse…which is fitting, considering that until recently, she was living with sickle cell disease herself. In late 2017, she received an allogenic stem cell transplant to cure sickle cell anemia, thanks to her sister’s bone marrow donation. After 25 years of hospital admissions and countless treatments, Revée made history as the first adult in Alberta to receive this disease-reversing — and life-changing — treatment. A member of the Not Just You Sickle Cell Transplant Alliance for Research and the Canadian Hemoglobinopathy Nurses Group, Revée is passionate about inspiring, encouraging, supporting, and advocating for the sickle cell community. Come along with her on this beautiful story of perseverance, determination, and faith…and help us congratulate Revée as she has just launched her new business venture, inspired by her health experience…a natural home, hair, and skincare line called Rêve Naturals, designed to help others reduce toxins in their day-to-day! Tune in as Revée shares: what it was like growing up with sickle cell how growing up with chronic illness tested her faith how her treatments developed over time before her remission how her health experiences drew her into a career in medicine how she became the first adult in Alberta to undergo a stem cell transplant to cure sickle cell that her sister was a perfect bone marrow match, and donated for her stem cell treatment that she’s gone from sickle cell patient to transplant patient that she’s officially sickle-cell-free — and that this strangely sent her into a kind of identity crisis that as a transplant patient, she doesn’t fit into the “traditional” model of aftercare support that for her, transplant was a choice — but for most recipients, transplant is the only option how her sister’s advocacy played a role in inspiring her to be a patient advocate how she became expert at playing down her own pain

#62 Living and Leading in a World with Systemic Racism: Thoughts, Reflections, and Possibilities featuring Renwick Brutus

In this episode we interview Renwick Brutus.  Renwick is an entrepreneur, business consultant and motivational speaker. We begin our interview with our guest Renwick Brutus, talking about this key question, “What right do you have to deny anybody the opportunity to benefit from who you are, what you know, and what you do?”. As a leader and entrepreneur, Renwick helps individuals and teams identify and use more of their potential to increase performance and results. He  guides individuals to be irresistible to their organizations, customers, and the market-at-large.  On top of all that, Renwick provides investment and wealth management guidance to individuals.   Renwick’s philosophy is, “Too many of us are programmed to follow paths that are not congruent with our natural interests and strengths.  We are not aware of the wide, open spaces around us in which we can express who we are.  All of us deserve to find our rightful place, to live joyfully, and to excel”.  During our interview we discuss with Renwick the world’s response to George Floyds death. Renwick shares his perspective that the visual imagery of George Floyd’s killing was worth 10 million words because it enabled the world to see the magnitude of the negative attitudes and treatment that has persisted toward black people.  It also brought systemic racism to the forefront of consciousness in a way no words or complaints could.  Renwick shares his personal experience with racism and how he chooses to respond to it.  He also acknowledges that many people opposed to racism are doing their part to systemically crush it, and many are working quietly to stamp out racism and this gives him the sense that he is not alone.   In the interview Renwick also conveys his thoughts and reflections on how others who want to can learn, understand, and stamp out injustices and systemic racism.  We close the interview with conversation about leadership during these times. Renwick’s wisdom is profound.  Listen and find out for yourself!Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions, we may use your question on a future episode. We have opened a private Resilient and Balanced Healthcare Leader Community in Facebook to provide a safe space for healthcare leaders to connect, support each other and share their experiences during this time of crisis.  To join Click here.

Critical care nurses have played a crucial role in the fight against COVID-19, and many have had a front row seat to how the virus has affected patients. Our guest, Megan Brunson, is a 20 year veteran of the ICU and the immediate past president of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses, which is the largest specialty nurses association in the US. On this episode of The Handoff, Megan and Dan talk about everything from the health disparities she sees firsthand with COVID patients in the hospital she works in in Texas, why she thinks now is a good time for nurses to consider a career in critical care, and her advice to nurses and nurse managers on how to prevent burnout.  Megan has been at the bedside for 23 years, with 20 of those in the ICU.

What it’s like to be a nursing student in 2020

2020 has been an unprecedented year for all nurses, and nursing students are no exception. The pandemic has prevented many students from meeting their in-person clinical hours, setting off legislative fights in some states and delaying graduation in others.  Our guests Andrew Rohrer and Caeli Matanky are the president and vice president of the California Nursing Students’ Association, respectively. Dan chats with them about the transition from in-person instruction to distance learning, how nursing school is teaching diversity and what it’s like to look for a job as a recent nursing graduate.  Andrew is currently enrolled in a joint ADN/BSN program between Modesto Jr. College and Cal State Stanislaus. He started the CNSA chapter at his school and ultimately became the president of the entire association. Caeli graduated from Sonoma State’s nursing program this spring and was CNSA’s vice president. Since our conversation, she has since accepted a job on the Cardiac Telemetry Unit at Adventist Health in Rohnert Park, CA.

091: Sabrina Marie Vera on Life w/ Rare Blood Disorder HHT

Sabrina Marie Vera is a proud first-generation college graduate, Puerto Rican woman, and HHT survivor. She and her family suffer from Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT), a rare genetic blood disease that took brother Robert’s life 15 years ago. HHT affects about 1.4 million people worldwide and has no cure. Sabrina graduated from Pomona College with a B.A. in Politics as a proud Gates Millennium, Chicago Posse, and Coca-Cola scholar. For her senior project “How the Marginalized Mobilize,” Sabrina explored the political theory underpinnings of activism in three distinct communities that all relate to her identity. She looked at disability rights activism in reunified Germany, digital queer activism in the MENA region post-Arab Spring, and the radical, anti-colonial activism of Puerto Rican Americans in the late 1960s. Sabrina, along with her mother, is the co-founder of the social change initiative and online platform Living with HHT, which connects over 2,000 patients worldwide suffering from HHT from all over the world, from New Zealand to India. Sabrina plans on going to law school after her gap years as a Global Writing and Speaking Fellow at NYU Shanghai. Her goal is to be a lifelong advocate for people with rare and chronic diseases both in and out of the courtroom. Tune in as Sabrina shares: that HHT is genetic, and runs in her family that HHT causes the development of AVMs (arteriovenous malformations, which cause a tangle of blood vessels that disrupt normal blood flow), which require surgery to repair that HHT can seemingly affect anybody, regardless of race or gender; 90% of HHT patients also remain undiagnosed how race and gender have affected her experiences in the healthcare system that in the past, she has been rendered invisible, and not believed (in the healthcare system) that about 50% of HHT patients experience a chest pain called pleurisy — and not enough research has been done to prove whether or not pleurisy is caused by AVMs, repair coils, or HHT itself that she has a cerebral AVM, and her brother died from a stroke and seizures caused by one the problems with mental health support in the US healthcare system, particularly for those who are living with comorbid chronic conditions how important it is for her to bring her culture and her pride to any table at which she sits why claiming her sexuality is so important to her — and that for women, sexuality and success are NOT mutually exclusive

Why we need more products designed by nurses

Nurses are the nation’s largest group of healthcare professionals and use more products than any other group of clinicians, giving them what Karen Giuliano calls  a “uniquely practical and care sensitive perspective on healthcare delivery.”  Karen started her career as a critical care nurse. She was a self described “tinkerer” whose curiosity about products in the ICU ultimately helped her pivot her career into product development, and she wants to encourage more nurses to get involved in product design and development. In this conversation, Karen and Dan talk about why nurses are the ideal clinicians to address everyday problems in healthcare, how she hopes that COVID-19 will speed up the role of nurses in healthcare innovation and advice for nurses who want to build new products.  Karen can be reached at kkgiuliano(at)nursing(dot)umass(dot)edu  Links to recommended reading:  https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Karen_Giuliano2  The full transcript for this episode can be found here: www.trustedhealth.com/the-handoff-podcast/karen-giuliano

Being a female physician comes with a slew of problems that has nothing to do with doctoring. Being a female physician of color is a whole other conversation. Dr. Shika Dooley joins me to start that conversation and I invite you to continue it. For Dr. Dooley, and all the physicians just like her, there is not much more they can do on their own to bring awareness to their plight. They’ve had protests. They’ve kneeled. They’ve started the conversation, but as she says, it’s now up to us to carry the torch. She founded the Thrive Together Conference for physicians and aspiring-physicians of color to have a safe space to share their stories. She encourages white physicians to join them so that they too can hear the stories and become proponents of the cause.  This is why she chose the word Allies for this conversation. She needs other women to stand up and help carry the banner of change for them. I am happy to be her ally and I invite you to do the same.
