40: Counting on Faith

There has been a long-standing relationship between faith, clergy, health, and healthcare. Faith-based partnerships have forged and furthered public health goals historically and more importantly at present. Clergy and faith-based organizations are pivotal and trusted players in their communities providing service, leadership, connection, communication, distribution of services, and increasingly, innovation. In this episode we explore with UK Healthcare’s Chief Diversity Officer Tukea Talbert DNP, RN, CDP about how partnerships with our communities’ faith leaders and congregations can build trust, break systemic barriers to access, and move toward health equity.

39: Real World Data. Real Life Results.

The use of data is rapidly shaping and transforming every aspect of how we measure, track, research, and deliver healthcare. Using large data sets, innovators have been unleashing technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, and sentiment analysis to open entirely new avenues to understand health conditions, the circumstances in which they arise, and personalized approaches to addressing them. Cancer care is one area where the use of data is rapidly transforming every facet of care, and one rapidly evolving development is the use of real world data to provide important insights that often have not been answered using data from the highly prized clinical trials data. One very specific area that data—particularly real world data—is helping us to understand is how race and ethnicity play a role in disparities in care and outcomes. In this episode, we go deep into the data weeds with clinician, innovator, and data specialist Kathleen Maignan, AGPCNP-BC, MSN, OCN, to reveal what stories the data really has to tell.

38: Mentoring for a More Equitable Future

Think of the countless individuals seeking care daily in our clinics, pharmacies, hospitals, schools, and all manner of health care setting. To best communicate, understand, and build trust, it’s vital that patients see people in the healthcare workforce who look, speak, eat, pray, and live like they do.  Our healthcare workforce is far from diverse, representative of our population, or a reflection of our communities and the people we care for.  And that is problematic.  This representation pipeline problem takes root early on in our educational settings.  In this episode, we meet nurse anesthetist, founder and CEO of Diversity in Nurse Anesthesia Mentorship Program, Wallena Gould, EdD, CRNA, FAAN, whose personal experiences led to a recognition of the scope and root problems that prevent innovation from being impactful or scaled, which led to a body of work that has been applied across healthcare to forge a more equitable future.

Rebroadcast 1: Why SEE YOU NOW?

As SEE YOU NOW celebrates its first year of remarkable stories of innovations and innovators and launches into its second year of storytelling, we wanted to return to our first episode to ground the importance of our focus on nurse-led innovation, and to listen with new ears tuned to where we are now in 2021. When SEE YOU NOW launched in January of 2020, health systems across the world were feeling the strains of ever increasing demands driven by an aging population, widening health disparities, and rapidly growing healthcare workforce shortages. We posed the weighty, existential questions—“Why THIS podcast and why NOW?”—and that was just a few weeks before nurses and health innovators across the world would be called upon to respond to COVID-19. The pandemic is a generational, global health and economic crisis that drastically, dramatically, and rapidly changed how we live, work, play, and pray, and is driving an unprecedented demand for nurse innovation, in real time. So much of what we explored in our first episode remains prescient and vital. Now more than ever, the SEE YOU NOW stories of health innovation and the nurses leading them are critical to improving health and saving lives.

37: The Gift of Life: An Intersection of Grief and Gratitude

Each year, thousands of lives are saved and improved through organ and tissue donation. But despite the remarkable advances in organ recovery, more than 100,000 Americans are currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant with 33 dying every day for lack of an organ. This episode spotlights two nurse CEO's innovating at the system level to maximize organ availability. Ginny McBride, RN, MPH, Executive Director of OurLegacy Organ & Tissue Donor Services at Advent Health in Orlando, Florida, and Patti Niles, RN, BSN, CPTC, CEO of Southwest Transport Alliance in Dallas, Texas, are two nurse innovators from organ procurement organizations (OPOs) working to modernize and streamline organ donor management systems across the nation. Working closely with patients, families, and care teams provides them an understanding of the complexities of organ donation and transplantation enabling them to see the big picture and take action where innovations in health information exchange, donor management, and procurement can have an impact on a national scale. Tune in to hear about the groundbreaking work these nurses are leading so more people are able to give and receive the gift of a lifetime.

On a daily basis, we trust nurses with billions of dollars of equipment, critical procedures, and our most important assets: the people we love. But they’re doing so much more behind the scenes.

SEE YOU NOW is a podcast that shines a light on the real people changing the status quo in health: from nurses working in labor & delivery, with infectious diseases, and in hospice; to nurse allies in politics, business and tech.

Hosted by nurse economist and health technology specialist Shawna Butler, RN, MBA, SEE YOU NOW gives listeners access to meaningful conversations with the nurses at the forefront of healthcare and innovation; those developing new devices, processes, protocols, and ways to treat for infection prevention, infant health, maternal mortality, palliative care, and so much more.
