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.

36: Contact Tracing at Scale

Flattening the curve. Testing and contact tracing. Social distancing. Not only have these practices become part of our daily routines, but they are also the primary tools of the public health emergency response to COVID-19. In this episode, we meet Kathleen Blaney, MPH, RN, Director of Disease Control Emergency Preparedness at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Kathleen recounts the story of building the NYC Test & Trace Corps, a public health initiative to fight the threat of COVID-19 and one of the largest contact tracing endeavors in modern history, which in a matter of weeks trained and onboarded over 3,000 new contact tracers—remotely. She shares how the highly personal nature of contact tracing can strengthen science literacy and vaccine confidence, reduce health disparities, and even help build trust in both public institutions and each other amid the pandemic and beyond.

35: Big Data & AI Meet Precision Nursing

Artificial intelligence (AI) has come a long way since being formally established as a field in 1956. Today, AI operates seamlessly in most every facet of our daily lives—and increasingly into more and more aspects of healthcare and how nurses are caring for people, and for entire populations. With the amount of health data and the rate at which we’re generating it, combined with the extraordinary computing power of machines, we're at a point where AI can see patterns we can't and tell us things we didn't know, before they happen! In this episode, we meet nurse and innovation sherpa Robbie Freeman, MSN, MBA RN, NE-BC, and learn how he and his team of clinicians, data scientists, and engineers are working with an interesting array of technology partners to design and embed AI into hospital operations and clinical workflows. This work supports nurses, doctors, and care teams in predicting and better managing clinical situations while keeping people safe, involving patients more deeply in their care, and ushering in a moonshot for healthcare that Robbie characterizes as “Precision Nursing”—delivering the right care to the right person, in the best way, at the ideal moment.

Virtual Screening for Safer Shelter(s)

Seeing the need to keep homeless shelters, their guests and staff safe and coronavirus free, Nurse Disrupted—a pandemic response start-up in Madison, WI—was launched in record time to build fast, simple, virtual health screenings for homeless shelters and communities. On this episode, we meet nurses Bre Loughlin, MS, RN, and Tracy Zvenyach, PhD, APRN-NP, co-founders of Nurse Disrupted, and dig into the details of launching their new venture. We learn how their different, yet complementary backgrounds of technology and policy are a strength of their partnership, and how in solving one problem, they simultaneously solve several more, including helping nursing students fulfill their practicum hours toward graduation and gain digital health tech skills; helping shelter residents improve access to and quality of health care; conserving personal protective equipment; and gathering vital public health data to shape health and social services policy and access government funding.

Rebroadcast: Licensed to Touch: Learnings from Ward 5B

How did misinformation, hysteria and fear surrounding the first HIV/AIDS outbreak turn into community, compassion and love? The HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s also brought forth homophobia and panic. Already stigmatized by society as having “gay cancer,” HIV and AIDS patients were discriminated against by their own healthcare providers in the spaces that were intended to provide them support and treatment. Outraged with the lack of care being provided to HIV and AIDS patients, San Francisco General Hospital’s Ward 5B nurses Alison Moed, Cliff Morrison and Guy Vandenberg set aside their own fears to rally around and provide humane and dignified care to these patients when their health and well-being depended on it. Their extraordinary actions have transformed and established a new standard of care that is used around the world for those living with HIV and AIDS.  For additional resources, visit our website at www.seeyounowpodcast.com  Contact us at [email protected]

Roots of Resilience

A key component of sound mental health that may help protect against depression and anxiety is resilience, and knowing that you’re connected to a greater purpose—to a story larger than your own—is key to building it. For Native and indigenous peoples, the stories of origin, history, and identity are central in building resilience and experiencing optimal health. In this episode, we meet indigenous nurse researcher John Lowe, RN, PhD, FAAN, and discover how he is addressing the long-standing structural impediments that have kept American Indian, Alaska Native and indigenous youth from connecting to their cultural heritage, native identity, and to a history that he describes as a source of great strength. John established the first Center for Indigenous Nurse Research For Health Equity where he is innovating on ancestral wisdom and tradition—through practices like the Virtual Talking Circle—to enable indigenous youth to move away from harmful behaviors and move toward lives and coping mechanisms that are both positive and strength-based.

Bridges to Fatherhood

Fathers play a unique role in their children’s lives and development, and plenty of research backs up the importance of a father's presence. But when it comes to preparing for parenthood, the focus is heavily skewed to preparing mothers for motherhood. So how are fathers getting the support and training they need to be successful -- especially in this age of pandemic parenting? And how does this all come together with the additional challenge of being a father who isn’t living with their children? It's not easy. In this episode, we learn how nurse scientist and researcher Wrenetha Julion, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, CNL, is innovating to build and bolster the involvement of African American fathers who live apart from their children through the Building Bridges to Fatherhood Program and through an exciting new Father Inclusive Prenatal Care program.

Black Midwives & Mamas Matter

The CDC reports that Black mothers die at three to four times the rate of white mothers and that the mortality rate of Black infants is higher than that of any other ethnic group in the U.S. Regardless of income and education level, childbirth for Black women is more dangerous than it is for white women. Even tennis legend Serena Williams had a dangerously close call during her pregnancy. In examining why these disparities are so stark, it is clear that structural and systemic racism, racialized health inequities, and implicit bias not only play a role but also signify areas within our society that desperately need improvement. In this episode, we hear from three healthcare innovators who personally and professionally—as Black women and advisors to the Black Mamas Matter Alliance—work tirelessly to advance policy grounded in human rights and reproductive justice to improve Black maternal health and lives. Tune in to hear Jennie Joseph, LM, CPM, RM, Founder and Executive Director of Commonsense Childbirth and Founder of the National Perinatal Task Force; Joia Crear-Perry, MD, Founder and President of the National Birth Equity Collaborative; and Monica McLemore, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, Tenured Associate Professor at the University of California, San Francisco and member of the Bixby Center of Global Reproductive Health, share their wisdom, outrage, approach, and perspectives on the causes and solutions to Black maternal health disparities in the United States.

Frontiers in Public Health Nursing

During a public health crisis, such as COVID-19, we are acutely aware of the connections between social justice, public health and innovation—especially in communities with vast disparities, such as those in Alaska where Tim Struna, MPH, RN, practices. To explore how public health nurses are innovating to respond to the unique challenges of the ongoing pandemic, we talk to Tim, Chief of Public Health Nursing in the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services. He is focused on increasing access to health services for residents in rural areas, particularly during COVID-19, by innovating and coordinating health practices at a community level.

Pause for a Moment

When we first aired the episode “Pause For a Moment” back in February of 2020, the world was in a different place, but we were already speaking to the experiences of nurses who, when faced with death, needed to take time to reflect and process each loss and hold time to grieve. Emergency nurse and palliative care liaison, Jonathan Bartels, RN, understands the toll that witnessing a death can have on healthcare worker resiliency. Bartels designed The Pause, a meaningful and effective practice that health systems are rapidly adopting to address the alarming rate of clinician burnout and mental stress. COVID-19 changed the death and dying experience in hospitals and forced nurses to not only innovate the end-of-life experience, but also to shoulder so much more of it.

Season 2: It’s a Wrap!

As we wrap Season 2 of SEE YOU NOW we’re listening back through the stories and hearing important themes emerge that include a heightened appreciation for innovation, the role it’s playing in responding to our current public health crises, and how that role is changing and evolving. In the era of COVID-19, the practice, permissions, and norms of innovation have shifted dramatically–it’s also identified and cultivated new leaders.  Season 2 took us across the country finding stories of health innovation, from one coast to the other, from rural settings to urban settings, with nurses who specialize in everything from intensive care, to design, and legislation. While the season highlighted the geographic differences, it also punctuated, and, possibly more importantly, showed just how much we share in common. While we are busy working to bring you more exciting stories in Season 3, we invite you to tune in to some of our favorite moments from Season 2. If you have any favorite episodes or stories of nurses leading innovation across all the frontlines of care, please let us know at [email protected] We’ll be back soon!

Rebroadcast: Mental Health Pandemic

As September, National Suicide Prevention Month, comes to a close –we wanted to revisit our episode on the Mental Health Pandemic that originally aired in May of 2020 as part of National Nurses Month. Each year during the month of September, the Suicide Prevention Lifeline and other mental health organizations around the world raise awareness of suicide prevention. And on October 10, we will observe World Mental Health Day – a day focused on raising awareness of mental health issues and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. No one anticipated that 2020, The Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, would see nurses at the center of a novel coronavirus pandemic. But that’s exactly what’s unfolding and nurses are rising to the challenges and demands. Every day, frontline healthcare teams are making impossible choices, risking their health and their family's health, saving lives, and keeping our health systems afloat. The work is exhausting on every dimension and triggering a series of pandemics. COVID-19 will have a mental health impact on everyone. And for those providing the care and making tremendous sacrifices for our communities, the mental health toll will continue on well beyond the pandemic itself. In this special episode of SEE YOU NOW we hear from four healthcare leaders with a different lens on the shared mission of building a healthy, happy, and resilient healthcare workforce. Barbara McLean, clinical nurse specialist and nurse practitioner, Liz Stokes, the director of the ANA Center for Ethics and Human Rights, Judy Davidson, nurse scientist, and Pam Cipriano, the dean of the University of Virginia School of Nursing, share their experience, perspective and wisdom and the urgency of addressing mental health needs now.

Sensing Health

Across the globe, millions of people are experiencing the challenges, complexities, and costs of caring for elderly family members—these challenges have been amplified and complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. AARP recently reported that 48 million Americans, mostly women, care for another adult and now, checking in on our elder loved ones in a physically distanced manner requires even greater creativity and innovation. In this episode, we meet nurse innovator Joshua Littlejohn MPH, MSN, RN, and entrepreneur Gabriela Sabaté, MBA, MHCI, who are experimenting and innovating with technologies that connect data to transform how we not only provide care remotely, but also how we approach and use hackathons as a way to crowdsource ideas and introduce new innovations.  For more additional resources visit our website at www.seeyounowpodcast.com  Contact us at [email protected]

Myth Busters

During the crisis phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare, like every other sector of the US economy, was forced to cease non-essential activities. Which meant canceling thousands of elective procedures and in-person visits, halting a wide-ranging set of business operations, and shifting thousands of employees to work from home and redeploying many to new roles. The profound disruption was both astounding and revealing and offered a rare opportunity to innovate swiftly at the enterprise level. In this episode, Karen Murphy, PhD, RN, executive VP, chief innovation officer and founder of the Steele Institute for Health Innovation at Geisinger offers the thirty thousand foot view of enterprise-level innovation at a scale and pace that was once thought of as too hard, too risky, and just not possible.   For additional resources visit: www.seeyounowpodcast.com  Contact us at [email protected]

Innovation Hotbed

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is not a place any parent anticipates meeting and caring for their newborn. But when they do, they find it a place where science, technology, tiny humans and strong emotion meet head-on. And as COVID-19 spread across the globe, it added another layer of planning and anxiety for pregnant people anticipating how different their pregnancy could turn out should they or their newborn test positive for the virus. In this episode, we hear from Nicole Lincoln MSN, RN, FNP-BC, CCNS about her work on NICI, a radical reimagining of the infant incubator. What started as an idea to create a low-cost, portable, and single-use incubator for our smallest and most fragile citizens, morphed into new concepts about how the incubator could be used in new ways, new places, and solve new problems.  For additional resources, visit our website at www.seeyounowpodcast.com  Contact us at [email protected]

Reading the Signs

Listener warning: This episode features groundbreaking work around human trafficking. The episode includes a very difficult and graphic conversation that may be triggering and not appropriate for all audiences. The International Labor Organization estimates there to be over 40 million victims of human trafficking globally, with hundreds of thousands in the United States. In addition to being a human rights violation, human trafficking is also a massive global health problem with almost 90% of victims seeking care in our healthcare systems, with most of them being seen in our emergency departments. Nurses are often the first point of clinical contact for victims and play a key role in identifying and providing resources for them. In this episode, we meet Danielle Bastien RN, DNP, FNP-BC, a nurse practitioner at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan who researched and explored human trafficking and how health systems, and nurses specifically, can identify and protect victims, help them find a way out, and a safer, more secure path forward.

Personal Effects

In health systems across the globe, nurses are relied upon and trusted to care for people and their families. What's lesser-known are the details of care, what nursing teams actually do, and how their innovation unfolds. The COVID-19 crisis has dramatically changed that and provided opportunities for the world to take a closer look at the behind-the-scenes details and see nurses as experts leading innovation. In this episode, nurses Carlos Trochez, Jr., BSN, RN and Simone Hannah-Clark, BN, RN, CCRN, two of the many thousands of nurses working in intensive care units around the world, reflect on the intensity and pace of real-time innovation in a pandemic and reveal how crowdsourcing from social media, collaborating across cultures and disciplines, and live choreography played a role in all the pieces coming together—and how they are present and highly attuned when the pieces, for some patients and families, fall apart.  Guests Featured in This Episode  Carlos Trochez Jr., BSN, RN  Simone Hannah-Clark, BN, RN, CCRN For additional resources, visit our website at www.seeyounowpodcast.com     Contact us at [email protected]

COVID-19 The Nurse Response: The Volume of Silence

During this pandemic, communities across the globe have experienced extraordinary social solidarity with the prevailing sentiment of ‘we are in this together’. While we’ve come together for mutual support and understanding in small and extraordinary ways, there are a few who believe the necessary public health measures are too lengthy and too broad. And in some parts of the US, they’ve taken to the streets to protest mandatory shelter-in-place orders that have closed non-essential parts of our economies. The loudest voices in the midst of these debates and protests were the nurses who stood silently in solidarity for their patients who could not join the conversation. In Arizona, nurses Jade Juriansz, Jasmine Bhatti, and Brittany Schilling participated in a counter protest to provide facts about what is happening with COVID-19 on the frontlines. Although silent, these nurses’ presence and motivation resounded around the world. In this episode we get to hear the motivations of this courageous group who made a commitment to educate the public and share the facts, and the health risks—a true example of 'meeting people where they are'.

How did misinformation, hysteria and fear surrounding the first HIV/AIDS outbreak turn into community, compassion and love? The HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s also brought forth homophobia and panic. Already stigmatized by society as having “gay cancer,” HIV and AIDS patients were discriminated against by their own healthcare providers in the spaces that were intended to provide them support and treatment. Outraged with the lack of care being provided to HIV and AIDS patients, San Francisco General Hospital’s Ward 5B nurses Alison Moed, Cliff Morrison and Guy Vandenberg set aside their own fears to rally around and provide humane and dignified care to these patients when their health and well-being depended on it. Their extraordinary actions have transformed and established a new standard of care that is used around the world for those living with HIV and AIDS.  Interested in learning more?
