In addition, examining the National Academy of Medicine’s report and update on the Future of Nursing 2030 suggests further opportunities to contribute. Included in this presentation is a discussion of technology as it contributes to advances in care.

  • Episode 43: June 12, 2019 - Sickle Cell Disease: My Story

    Living with sickle cell anemia: what I wish my caregivers understood about me—Kelsey Taylor

    Living with sickle cell anemia: what I wish my caregivers understood about me—Kelsey Taylor

    Kelsey Taylor

    My name is Kelsey Taylor and I am a 25-year-old college student at Wheaton College, MA studying Film and New Media Studies. I was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia at birth, and since then have been advocating for patients nationwide. While struggling with sickle cell, I had my first pain crisis when I was 5 years old, suffered severe daily pain since age 16, and at 19 I ended up doing a bone marrow transplant in an attempt to cure my disease. I engrafted—meaning new, healthy bone marrow was producing normal cells—but my body rejected the healthy marrow and sickle cell disease returned a month later. Since then, I've focused on advocating and sharing my experience with the disease, including creating a podcast to raise awareness of the patient perspective of not just sickle cell, but many chronic illnesses, diseases, and disabilities. The Pill podcast is a new type of health podcast that interviews young adults who have chronic illness, diseases, and disabilities worldwide.

    Host: Dawn Berndt, DNP, RN, CRNI® – INS Infusion Nurse Educator

    Guest: Kelsey Taylor

    Sickle cell disease is a family of blood disorders that affects the hemoglobin molecule in red blood cells, and impacts approximately 80,000 individuals in the United States. It’s the most common inherited blood disorder in this country, affecting 1 in 500 African Americans and 1 in 1000-1400 Hispanic Americans. In sickle cell disease, the hemoglobin molecules are atypical and change into a crescent—or sickle—shape. Those living with sickle cell disease often experience episodes of severe pain and suffer the effects of anemia, which causes extreme fatigue, shortness of breath and, in children, delayed growth and development. In adults, serious complications may include pulmonary hypertension, a form of high blood pressure that affects the blood vessels that supply the lung. 

    Podcast guest Kelsey Taylor describes her experiences living with the disease, and explains how she works to advocate for those who experience sickle cell and other chronic conditions.

    Arna Robins, MSN, RN, CEN, CFRN, NREMT
    8:00 - 9:00 AM EDT

    Although nurses enter the profession to help others, many times nurses are not helpful to one another. All nurses must understand why horizontal violence exists and what steps need to be taken to change the status quo. This session will define and describe different types of horizontal violence and discuss the reasons for its occurrence.

    9:00 - 10:00 AM EDT

    When developing a nurse-patient therapeutic relationship, a nurse’s proclivity for empathy may put them at risk for compassion fatigue. Cumulative stress related to the work environment can contribute to burnout. Although compassion fatigue and burnout have similarities in etiologies, triggers, and symptoms, they differ in several ways. This session will explore strategies on how to recognize and  manage the symptoms of both situations, understand the similarities and differences, and how to mitigate the risks.

    Learning Outcomes: After the session, attendees will be able to describe the similarities and differences between compassion fatigue and burnout, and verbalize potential strategies to manage both.

This disorder affects as many as 1 in 10 nurses, many of whom are not identified and may continue to practice, potentially endangering the lives of patients. This session will describe SUD, identify the symptoms, and discuss the nurse’s obligation to act if SUD is suspected in a colleague.

  • Short Peripheral Intravenous Access: A Risk/Benefit Analysis

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1 credit offered Recorded On: 05/08/2019

    As the most common procedure performed in the acute care setting, insertion of the short peripheral intravenous (IV) catheter is a basic nursing skill. It is, however, far from benign. There is a lack of standardized education and competency assessment in this foundational skill. In addition, a lack of validated assessment tools has hindered accurate evaluation of the patient harm caused by complications such as infiltration, extravasation, phlebitis, and infection. This presentation will provide an overview and respond to audience questions regarding the use of short peripheral IV access and its role in the current standard of practice, the potential complications that arise with use, and strategies to optimize outcomes in the management of short peripheral IV access.

    Guest: Rachel Colletta, BSN, IgCN, CRNI®, VA-BC

    Professional boundaries are the spaces between the nurses’ power and the patients’ vulnerability. In all relationships between health care professionals and patients, there is an imbalance of power. Health care professionals have in-depth access to patients’ sensitive personal information and that puts the professional in a position of power. It is important for health care professionals to understand the boundaries of these relationships and to maintain the space that protects the privacy and dignity of patients under their care. This podcast defines and describes the types of professional boundaries and strategies to maintain therapeutic relationships.

  • Non-suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI): Adolescent Truths

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1 credit offered Recorded On: 04/10/2019

    Non-suicidal self-injury is behavior with intent to inflict short-term physical pain rather than deal with emotional pain. Not only is this phenomenon increasing, but clinicians still lack understanding regarding why individuals partake in this behavior. Although counter-intuitive, those who self-harm attempt to replace their emotional pain with physical pain. This presentation is intended to stimulate thought in those who provide assessment and treatment of the adolescent population, primarily in those with emotional disorders. A short case study and discussion of best practice will be discussed.
