Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, the Society of Nurse Scientists Innovators Entrepreneurs and Leaders (SONSIEL), and DevUP announce the first Nurse Hack for Health: COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon, occurring online May 15-17, 2020. The virtual hackathon is a timely opportunity for those on the frontline to apply their experience, resourcefulness and innovative thinking and employ technology to help improve response to the pandemic, and save lives.
The number of COVID-19 cases continues to grow. This week’s edition of Amplify Nursing features Elise Tarbi and Brianna Morgan, who are both board-certified Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioners with advanced certifications in Hospice and Palliative care, as well as doctoral students at Penn Nursing. With demands on both hospitals and providers expanding, and resources predicted to become scarce, there has been heightened public discourse about rationing.
COVID-19 is sweeping across the country with the number of cases rising dramatically. It’s been two weeks since Penn Nursing’s Alison Buttenheim, PhD, a public health researcher and behavioral epidemiologist and Penn Medicine’s Carolyn Cannuscio, ScD, a social epidemiologist, joined Amplify Nursing to discuss the coronavirus. Since a lot has occurred in that time, they are back with an update to discuss where we are at in this pandemic, how it has been handled locally and nationally so far, and what is still to come. Listen here or wherever you listen to podcasts.
Amplify Nursing, the new podcast created and hosted by Penn Nursing’s Marion Leary, RN, MSN, Director of Innovation, and Angelarosa DiDonato, DNP, CRNA, features nurses who are leading the way in nursing science, policy, and innovation.
