Welcome to the Show
Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses.

First up, in this week’s nursing news items, find out how you can help your elderly patients maintain their memory with a bit of humor.

Tip of the Week – Organ Donation and End of Life Care for Nurses
In this week’s tip of the week, we have the first of our special segments recorded at the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) NTI 2014 conference last week in Denver. Thanks to the generous support of Physio-Control, I was able to go to this conference to interview some of the top nurse researchers and leaders in the critical care arena and bring those back to you here on the Nursing Show.
In this segment from NTI I chat with nurse researcher Rich Arbour, a transplant coordinator and critical care nurse from Rochester, NY. Rich talks about the nurses role in preparing potential patient donors and their families for the difficult end of life decisions involved in organ donation. Here’s that segment with Rich.
