76: Why Work in Healthcare?

During the summer of 2022, SEE YOU NOW has been on the road meeting new ideas and people and sharing stories about what we’ve experienced in a wide range of healthcare encounters. In this episode we invite you join us at the Aspen Ideas: Health conference.  Aspen’s 60+ sessions are designed to engage a broad audience in the issues that shape our lives, challenge our times, and introduce us to leaders and ideas that chart pathways toward   better health for all. Building on the understanding that reliable, safe, quality healthcare for all depends on a well-trained, energetic, and abundant workforce, the health and wellbeing of clinicians took center stage at Aspen. Despite schools of nursing, medicine, and public health attracting record numbers of qualified applicants, many highly trained health professionals are leaving the field. In this lively panel discussion led by physician and former NYC Health commissioner Dave Chokshi, MD, seasoned clinicians Sandra Lindsay, RN, MBA, Adrian Billings, MD and Siobhan Wescott, MD MPH speak candidly about the exhaustion, debt, and moral injury plaguing the healthcare workforce; the political, financial, and workforce solutions they advocate for; and in spite of -- or because of -- the numerous system-level challenges, why working in healthcare remains a rewarding and promising career choice

#167: Leveraging Personal Change and Stability for TRU Healthcare Leaders

In this episode, we talk about leveraging personal Change and Stability and why it's important for Thriving, Resilient, and Unstoppable (TRU) healthcare leaders. We know leaders deal with ongoing challenges and changes daily, and their attention has been on their team and organization. In fact, many healthcare leaders have let go of their personal rituals and routines that bring Stability because of the workload and other challenges brought on by the pandemic. The thing is, without Change and Stability, you'll feel powerless and stuck, and you're at risk of change happening to you instead of you leading the change in your own life. Therefore, Change and Stability is an important personal tension or polarity to manage now with the current healthcare situation. In this podcast, we talk about the importance of recognizing Change and Stability as a polarity and why it's an important tension to manage in healthcare, not only at the organization level but at the personal level, too. We also talk about some actionable steps to help you create personal Change and Stability and some of the negative consequences of not leveraging this polarity.

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Uncovered a Nursing Home Industry in Need of Repair

On episode 387 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Buffy Lloyd-Krejci, DrPH, MS, CIC, the author of "Broken: How the Global Pandemic Uncovered a Nursing Home Industry in Need of Repair and Heroic Staff Fighting for Change." Dr. Buffy Lloyd-Krejci, also known as "Dr. Buffy: The Germ Slayer", is one of the foremost authorities on infection prevention and control in nursing homes and long-term care facilities such as nursing homes and other underserved and vulnerable populations. Her practice, IPCWell, is headquartered in Phoenix and is devoted to mitigating infectious diseases and inappropriate antibiotic prescribing in healthcare settings to reduce adverse events, infections, antibiotic resistance, readmissions, and death. Dr. Buffy consults with health care facilities across the United States and internationally. Using her experience with more than 700 healthcare facilities across the United States she works tirelessly to combat the estimated 1 to 3 million infections leading to more than 380,000 deaths every year in the nursing home industry. She has worked with the CDC and other organizations on infection control studies and research such as the Arizona Emergency Preparedness Infection Control (EPIC) grant, the Institute of Health (IHI) Project ECHO, a hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing network to support NH leadership during COVID-19. As a result of her work with more than 200 nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic and over 500 prior to 2020, Dr. Lloyd-Krejci's book describes challenges within the nursing home industry with infection prevention and control prior to the pandemic, the catastrophic consequences of COVID-19, and what actions are needed to improve the quality of care delivered to this vulnerable population now and into the future. And how to use this dark season to transform the long-term care industry into a supportive healthcare system that provides safer, more reliable care for our loved ones.

She’s spent the past decade pursuing nursing including a master’s and doctorate degree. She endured a long road through infertility followed by infertility treatments and a traumatic pregnancy.  After experiencing a long road through infertility, she decided she wanted to help couples in their journey to grow their family.

Listen Again | 65: Sending Out An S.O.S.

During September, we’re adding our support to National Suicide Prevention Month by listening to Sending Out an SOS, taking this moment to raise awareness of this stigmatized, and often taboo topic to shift public perception, spread hope, share vital information about suicide prevention, and that 988 is the new nationwide, simple, and easy-to-remember number to call or text for help with mental health, substance use, and suicide crises. On April 26, 2020 as New York City was reeling from the first, unrelenting wave of the coronavirus pandemic in the US, Dr. Lorna Breen died by suicide. Despite being aware of and having published on the risks and phenomenon of burnout in emergency care medicine, Lorna was afraid to seek help out of fear it would irreparably damage the career she had spent her entire life building. Her death spurred global awareness, a movement, and national legislation, led in part by her sister and brother-in-law, to reduce burnout of health care professionals, safeguard their well-being, and restore joy to the healing professions.    In this episode, we meet Jennifer and Corey Feist, co-founders of the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes' Foundation, US Senator Tim Kaine, co-sponsor of the Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act, and nurse and researcher Christopher Friese, a national authority on the nursing workforce and healthcare workplace safety to learn about ending the culture of fear regarding seeking mental health support within healthcare, the urgent need for healthcare organizations to build cultures that protect our healers, the importance of making sure that our workforce feels valued and supported at work, and the need to take care of each other and the vulnerabilities that we all have.

Nurse Wellbeing Mission with Nathan Illman

Working as a nurse and midwife in the modern healthcare system is certainly a challenge, typically because as clinicians, we are ill-equipped to thrive within the complex system that is healthcare! This week in High Performance Nursing, we’ll discuss with Clinical Psychologist and Founder of the Nurse Wellbeing Mission, Nathan Illman, the value of self-care, well-being, and our shared vision for organizational support for nurses and midwives. Caring for our mental health, having an encouraging workplace, and building a robust culture are some of the few steps we can take to ensure that our nurses can perform at their best! Nathan shares his top tips as a nurse and midwife ally, drawing from his lived experience in the system as both a clinical peer and a family member. Nathan was inspired by the amazing work that nurses and midwives do, kickstarting his desire to use his psychology and coaching skills to positively influence the system!  Ultimately, the goal is not to become the best worker out there, but to be the best version of yourself as a human first, nurse second. It’s time to dig deep and understand that those who deliver care must also experience care, even from themselves. All this and more in this exciting discussion! Tune in and enjoy the conversation.
