    Spaced Out

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Oct 14, 2016 4:40:20 PM

    Read a new post from our guest blogger, Dr. Karen Hessler, PhD, FNP-C, author of Flipping the Nursing Classroom: Where Interactive Learning Meets Technology.

    Happy Fall to everyone! I trust that nursing classrooms across the country and around the world are all abuzz with students and faculty working together to teach and learn the concepts and pearls of wisdom necessary to develop the next generation of nurses. As I think about the flipped classroom at its best and brightest, I wonder if we are considering the spacial aspect of our classrooms carefully enough.

    One Health: From AIDS to Zika, Just In Time for One Health Day

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Oct 4, 2016 4:48:56 PM

    By Richard Riegelman MD, MPH, PhD, Professor and Founding Dean, Milken Institute School of Public Health, The George Washington University

    As Zika spreads to the U.S., climate change becomes a daily reality, and the presence of antibiotic resistance becomes a threat to human health, the One Health movement has emerged to help us understand how it all fits together. One Health looks at the relationship between human, animal, and ecosystem health and offers the potential for dramatic progress if the health professions work together to address these issues.

    Flip or Flop?

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Aug 5, 2016 2:06:36 PM

    Please welcome our guest blogger, Dr. Karen Hessler, PhD, FNP-C, author of Flipping the Nursing Classroom: Where Interactive Learning Meets Technology, for a post on the highs and lows of flipped classrooms.

    Summer is such a great time to take a few minutes to reflect on our teaching practices in the classroom and clinical settings. Even if you find yourself busy with publications, presentations at conferences, and teaching coursework during the summer, taking a moment to think about how we teach is a worthy endeavor. As I watched the fireworks display on the 4th of July with my family this year, it made me think of a parallel to my flipped classroom experiences. Some of the fireworks were beautiful, brilliant, and awe-inspiring, while others seemed to be…..well, duds.

    Attention Nurse Authors: Have You Thought About Publishing A Paper?

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Nov 23, 2015 3:11:30 PM

    Please welcome Dr. Lisa Kennedy Sheldon, author of Communication for Nurses: Talking with Patients, Third Edition, for a special guest blog post on the importance of writing and publishing in the nursing community.

    Many nurses struggle with wanting to write, but not feeling confident to create a paper that would be published. We want to communicate important aspects of nursing care, but are intimidated by the process of publishing. You may lack confidence or feel untrained to publish a paper. However, nurses are excellent communicators who can also communicate with the written word. What we have to share can improve health in our communities and promote healing and recovery after illness and surgery. We are patient advocates and the center of health teams.

    What Is the Role of a Health Navigator on the Health Care Team?

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Oct 8, 2015 12:18:39 PM

    In 2015, Kay Perrin, PhD, MPH, joined us as a guest blogger for a series of five blog posts on the topic of the exciting new career field of the Health Navigator. This is the third of five.

    The purpose of this blog series is to describe the concept of health navigators. In the first blog, I defined the basic role of health navigator. After having a few conversations with colleagues, I decided that it is time to write a blog about what role the health navigator does not play in the health care system. Some nurses have commented that health navigators should not work in hospitals because they will not have clinical training. Other colleagues have mentioned that health navigators may never find jobs, because no one knows how their role fits into the health care team. Now, you see the reason for writing this blog about the role of health navigators on the health care team.

    Washington Post Makes Health Navigators Front Page News

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Jul 20, 2015 10:24:51 AM

     

    Guest blogger, author, and editor of the Essential Public Health Series, Richard Riegelman MD, MPH, PhD, writes about the emerging career field known as "Health Navigator."

    On July 4, the Washington Post featured a front page article, “Navigators’ for cancer patients: A nice perk or something more?” Perhaps the Post recognized that health navigators can provide “independence day” for patients with serious disease. The article and the comments provided numerous testimonials recognizing the “godsend” that health navigators can be for cancer patients. They also indicated that health navigators are being shown to be cost-effective at least for poorer patients.
