    Season 2: It’s a Wrap!

    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 hello@seeyounowpodcast.com. We’ll be back soon!

    Rebroadcast: Mental Health Pandemic

    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

    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.

    Campaign for Health

    Around the globe, nurses are actively innovating to improve the health, safety, and wellbeing of citizens, environments, and entire communities in settings that some might not have considered—our state legislatures. The link between nursing, politics, and innovation might not seem obvious, but for the nurses who have ushered in meaningful legislation—the relationship is a natural one. In this wide-ranging conversation with Delaware Lt. Gov, Bethany Hall-Long, we discover how nurses involved with legislation at the local, state, and federal level is innovation.

    Myth Busters

    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.

    Innovation Hotbed

    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.

Insightful and absolutely riveting

It’s so important for the general public to better understand how health care actually functions, and the people who deliver the vast majority of care are nurses. Shawna Butler’s podcast is insightful, riveting and elevates voices we all need to hear.

Everyone Should Listen To This Podcast

I can not recommend this podcast enough! Every episode I have listened to so far has been entertaining, informative, and impactful. They tell important stories from experts in a wide variety of topics that EVERYONE should hear about, not just people in the medical field. It is so ahead of its time. They interviewed healthcare workers who were on the front lines of the Ebola epidemic just as COVID-19 was starting to be seen in the United States (in January!!!). It reminds me of the podcast “Criminal” by Phoebe Judge, except instead of true crime, it’s healthcare.
