  • Unmasking COVID-19: A Virtual Town Hall February 2021

    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 02/11/2021 at 12:00 PM (EST)

    Unmasking COVID-19: A virtual Town Hall series to address the economic and social impact of COVID-19 on the neonatal and perinatal communities.

    A virtual Town Hall for neonatal and perinatal nurse leaders and their staff. As we have entered a new phase of COVID-19, we must now tackle new challenges. Safe and effective vaccines have been distributed to hospital systems nationwide, with healthcare workers being among the first to be offered vaccines. However, not all are choosing to be vaccinated. For nurse leaders this brings forth issues in areas of staffing, effective communication and patient and staff safety. During this Town Hall event, we will hear from nurse leaders and experts across the country on how they are overcoming these challenges.

  • Human Donor Milk Safety, A Nurse Leadership Call to Action - Recording

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Human donor milk and human donor-milk products have become increasingly critical “medical” therapies for premature NICU babies weighing 1,250 grams or less at birth. Conclusive data and lived experience as NICU Nurse Leaders affirms the clinical benefits of human milk, most especially in this fragile cohort. Due to the clinical success of human donor milk and human donor-milk products, there has been an enormous growth in the human milk industry over the last six years. While this is potentially great news for fragile preemies with more human milk available, it also elevates risk as more and more companies and milk banks enter the market in a completely unregulated environment (human milk is currently regulated as a food). Considering that human milk, as a biologic, has the inherent risk of transmitting pathogens, adulterants, nicotine, and many other substances, we find ourselves in a time of considering safer methods. In this webinar, we will look at all the risks secondary to the industry’s growth. Together we’ll evaluate what is currently being done to mitigate these risks, and what strategies we can put in place to advocate together to protect these tiny patients moving forward.

    View the general conference sessions from the 2020 Perinatal Leadership Forum.

    Join us and watch the wonderful general conference sessions from the 2020 Perinatal Leadership Forum!

    The Chinese symbol for crisis comes from a combination of the symbols for danger and opportunity. COVID-19 has presented a danger to our world, our hospitals, our personal lives, and our leadership capabilities, but…it also has provided us an opportunity to change and grow. Leaders have been pushed to be nimble, to find new ways to communicate, to rely on each other, and to innovate on the fly. 

    Leading through chaos requires leaders to become more self-aware, understand internal biases, and look at how one’s values impact the workplace. It is crucial for the leadership team to create a stable atmosphere that will help staff feel empowered, confident, and able to keep their mental and physical well-being in check. This includes encouraging empathy and caring and communicating with transparency and honesty. And lastly, the entire team has to support each other both personally and professionally in order to deliver optimal care to patients and their families.
