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 look at how one TED talk on nursing presence is changing the way we look at what we do as nurses.

Then in this week’s special tip segment we’ll look at a special initiative that is hoping to combat rates of maternal mortality over the next 10 years. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.

If you want to get back in touch with me, please drop me an email. You can send those e-mails in to NursingShow@Gmail.com. I love to hear from you and I make sure I respond back to every email that comes in. Send me links to news items you’d like me to cover, interview suggestions with you or somebody you know.

Tip of the Week – Improving Maternal Mortality Rates

Pregnant-Woman-Labor-breathingEvery two minutes, a woman dies from complications experienced during pregnancy and childbirth. Even in the U.S., the number of deaths from complications of pregnancy and childbirth has more than doubled in the past 20 years. Merck for Mothers is a 10 year $500 million initiative to help end maternal mortality.

Joining us on the Nursing Show today is Dr. Michael Rosenblatt and Jennifer Albert, a new mother who suffered severe pregnancy complications. Check out the tips they have to help remind healthcare professionals like nurses how to prevent maternal mortality.
