Nurse creates diagnostic smart phone app, metric system change needed to save pediatric lives, nurses tied to vaccination success, and we’ll visit again with another of our special interview segments from the NTI 2014 conference in Denver back in May. We’ll look at pain assessment and management of the delirium patient. If that’s what you’re looking for, you found it. It’s the Nursing Show.

Welcome to the Show
Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items, we’ll be looking at one nurse practitioner who created a new smartphone app that helps nurses diagnose pediatric hypertension in 1/3 the time it used to take.
Then in this week’s tip of the week, we’ll chat with critical care nurse practitioner and educator Brenda Pun as she talks about new research into how delirium patients and their pain are managed in the critical care setting. That is coming up later on in this episode.

Tip of the Week – Pain Management and Assessment in the Delirium Patient
Brenda T. Pun is an Advanced Practice Nurse with a special interest in critical care, who conducts and participates in patient-oriented, health services research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. She is one of the Vanderbilt Coordinating Center Project Managers where she is involved in the creation and design of studies, grant writing, data collection, and analysis of data and communication of results.
Brenda’s research has focused on improving the care and outcomes of critically ill patients with special emphasis on the problems facing older patients in the ICU (eg, cognitive impairment in the ICU, neuropsychological deficits post-ICU care, and quality improvement projects involving the implementation of evidence based medicine/nursing).
In addition she is dedicated to nursing and medical education. She travels throughout the United States providing continuing education to bedside staff at local, regional and national conferences and providing research consultation to hospitals and organizations.
