    Caring for the caregiver is often a discounted aspect of health care. Nurses pour out their compassion, strength, abilities, and expertise on behalf of their patients, yet often, their own personal health and well-being is neglected. This focus track is dedicated to building strong nurses and strong practice. Join our podcast host, Dawn Berndt, and guests Marlene Steinheiser and Susan Weaver to learn about the development of this program and the virtual sessions offered.

    INS 2019 Virtual Sessions:

    • Compassion Fatigue and Burnout: Understanding the Differences and Managing the Consequences
    • Substance Use Disorder in Nursing
    • It's Time for YOU: The Healthy Infusion Nurse

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

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits 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.

    Attending INS 2019? Listen to a preview of this year’s keynote speaker, Nancy Frates as she shares her personal experience with ALS. 

    Nancy Frates

    On March 13, 2012, Nancy’s 27-year old son Peter was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Her family’s world changed in an instant. They were told that there is no treatment or cure and the prognosis was 2 to 5 years. Since that day, Nancy has immersed herself in the ALS community as an advocate and thought leader. During the past 7 years Nancy has traveled and networked to the offices of CEOs, senators, congressmen, top doctors and governmental authorities. She has testified in Washington, D.C. on Capitol Hill, at the White House, and to an FDA panel regarding important issues affecting the ALS community. Nancy has developed strong relationships with executives at both the local and national levels of ALS organizations involved in research, patient support, advocacy, and fundraising.

    In August 2014, Nancy’s son Peter along with their family and supporters inspired the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to go viral, raising $220 million for the ALS Association and its global partners. During that August and the months following, Nancy has been interviewed by numerous domestic and international television, magazine and web media outlets. She also began speaking at many events both domestically and internationally, to inspire others with her family’s story and to continue the momentum created for their cause, ALS.

    Nancy holds a business degree from Boston College and an honorary Doctorate in Humane Studies from Endicott College. During her 14-year career at Keller Williams, Nancy was a top agent in her Market Center serving on the ALC and working on many committees throughout her agent career. She also held positions in the Beverly Market Center as the productivity coach, team leader, and lead trainer.

    She currently serves on the Board of Trustees at Endicott college. Her “Ted Talk,” program on Ted.com, has been viewed over 1 million times and her corporate, inspirational speaking has taken her all over the world including Mumbai, Austria, Sweden, and Australia.

    Guest: Nancy Frates, INS 2019 Keynote Speaker

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neuromuscular disease, affects 30,000 people in the United States where at least 5000 new cases are diagnosed each year. Individuals with ALS are now living longer primarily due to new research, promising treatment, and disease advocacy initiatives. Listen in as Nancy Frates, INS 2019 keynote speaker, shares her personal family story and experience with ALS. Nancy is a dynamic individual who, with her family, has raised awareness for ALS exponentially both nationally and internationally.

  • Short Peripheral Catheter Infiltration: Minimizing Risks to Improve Outcomes

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 02/13/2019

    Hospitalized patients receiving medications or fluids via short peripheral catheters (SPCs) are at risk for infiltration. Infiltration can increase patient length of stay, result in repeated vascular access procedures, increase costs by use of supplies and nursing time, lead to short-term and long-term patient harm, and decrease patient satisfaction. Early detection of infiltration can minimize risks by prompt intervention. Quality improvement projects have been directed toward staff education on SPC insertion, maintenance, assessment, and monitoring. This webinar will discuss current research and practice initiatives, as well as the benefits of emerging technology aimed at reducing infiltration.

    Even when the most diligent bedside nurse is following SPC assessment protocols, infiltration or extravasation may still occur. This podcast will discuss the various causes of infiltration, and how these events are often based on patient factors such as age, vessel health, and infusate characteristics rather than the result of improper SPC placement. To ensure optimal patient care, infusion nurses and industry partners must continually review available evidence and technological advancements to ensure a given standard or technology supports the best care possible to the patient. Working as a team with clinicians, first-to-market device company ivWatch will share lessons learned about education and improving patient outcomes related to peripheral IV infiltration and extravasation.
