2020 Neonatal Resuscitation Guidelines: Raising Awareness, Advancing Adherence


Approximately 10% of newborns need help to begin breathing and 1% need intensive resuscitative measures. Their inability to establish and sustain adequate or spontaneous respiration can lead to adverse neurodevelopment — or even death.

Join us as this distinguished panel of neonatal nurse experts provide essential clinical care guidance from the new American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.

Benefit from their insights, best practices, and anticipatory guidance on how effective risk assessment prior to birth decreases mortality and morbidity, the role of human and systems performance in guideline adherence, and the AHA guidelines’ top 10 takeaways for neonatal life support.

You’ll leave with fresh insights on what specific training, changes in protocols, and new technologies are essential to improve frontline caregivers’ situational awareness and bolster the clinical confidence required in the resuscitation moment.


The Great Barrier Take-down: Unblocking Your Path to an Advanced Nursing Degree


Join an expert panel to learn the history and details behind the critical surge in the need for Advanced Practice RNs (APRNs) and particularly Family Nurse Practitioners (FNPs). We will explore all of the “why’s:”

  • The existing and projected needs gap
  • How APRNs and FNPs became documented as the most needed of the advanced nursing degrees
  • The fiscal potential and increased clinical and professional autonomy enjoyed by FNPs

This will be followed by an item-by-item examination of research exploring the challenges to nurses’ pursuit of these advanced degrees, their commonality within the nursing community, plus the potential of the degree’s attainment and reward in recognition, remuneration, and clinical respect.

Finally, our panel will examine the added societal value of filling gaps in primary care practitioner roles within underserved areas.

This webinar is the first in a two-part series that will address the growing need for advanced practice nurses in today’s healthcare environment and how nurses will play a critical role in the future as interprofessional practice continues to unfold.


Rethinking Staff Shortages


With the nurse shortage at crisis levels even before the pandemic hit, what are the flaws or shortcomings of conventional approaches to staffing that keep nurse leaders chronically in “firefighter mode”? While a great majority of healthcare organizations cite nurse retention as a key strategic imperative, only a little over a third of them have actually implemented a formal retention strategy. Why isn’t nurse retention more reflected in actual operational practices or planning? Join Bryan Dickerson, Senior Director of Healthcare Workforce Solutions at Hospital IQ, Shawna Gunn, Manager of Operations at MercyOne, Des Moines, and Danielle Bowie, DNP, RN, NE-BC, Vice President of Nursing Workforce Development at Bon Secours Mercy Health, Cincinnati, OH, as we discuss:

  • What the healthcare industry can learn from other industries
  • What are the opportunities and benefits of predictive analytics that can be leveraged to alleviate the nurse leaders’ constant staffing chase
  • See how leveraging technology can streamline both communications and preplanning, enabling nurse leaders to make proactive adjustments faster and more efficiently


Mistaken Identity


Correctly identifying patients in today’s complex healthcare system is a fundamental step in helping to ensure safe patient care. The Joint Commission’s most recent National Safety Goals (January 2019) for its Hospital Accreditation Program lists as Goal 1 to “improve the accuracy of patient identification.”

  • One recent study found that >50% of nurses reported experiences of adverse events that resulted in patient harm during their careers.
  • However, a 2015 study found that nearly 3 out of 4 registered nurses believed the potential correlation between patient misidentification and patient safety was “negligible.”

Clearly, there remains an educational imperative confronting nurse leaders to try to close the knowledge gap which causes so many nurses to regard patient misidentification as a rare and benign event—while statistics suggest otherwise. This webinar will convene an expert panel to:

  • Provide an interactive call to awareness and action about the multifactorial causes of preventable adverse events (PAEs) related to patient misidentification;
  • Define the root causes and prevalence of patient ID errors and their consequences; and
  • Propose printing and computing technologies and strategies for leaders and frontline nurses, to help them minimize patient misidentification related PAEs in the service of patient safety.


Applying Technology to Fall Prevention


During this educational webinar, clinical nurse consultant Sabrina Flavin will share research and evidence-based practices in fall and injury prevention. Participants will be introduced to fall prevention strategies, specifically focusing on bed and equipment technology as well as wireless technology advancements. The webinar will provide a full overview of fall and injury management, including a look at post-fall management and tools for success.
