President-elect Biden, you need a nurse on your Covid task force

"Nurses have faced tremendous obstacles in the battle against the novel coronavirus -- from high occupational risks of contracting the disease, due to frequent and close patient contact, to insufficient personal protective equipment. Globally, more than 1,500 nurses have died during the pandemic, a sobering number higher than among any other health-care-related profession and more than in World War I.

Now, as our nation's leadership finally prepares to use science, critical thinking, and compassion to fight this virus, let nurses have a voice in a matter that is killing us. The Covid-19 Transition Advisory Board needs people who understands frontline work. It needs someone who has experience with providing direct care to those with Covid. It needs someone who will be vital to impact vaccine delivery. It needs diversity in its members' professions. President-elect Biden, the Covid-19 Transition Advisory Board needs a registered nurse."

Those were the concluding paragraphs of an Op-Ed by Lauren Ghazal and Caroline Dorsen, posted last week on CNN. Yes, nurses need to be represented on the task force. And nurses need to be represented on hospital boards and on advisory committees and on local, state and federal task forces and on and on and on...

Lauren Ghazal is a PhD candidate at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. Caroline Dorsen is associate dean of Advanced Practice and Clinical Partnerships at Rutgers University School of Nursing. Both are nurse practitioners in New York City.

Beyond burnout: For health care workers, this surge of Covid-19 is bringing burnover

"There is an epidemic in this country of not listening to those in distress. Health care leaders must stop offering solutions before getting deeply curious about the problem and asking staff what they need. Administrators and clinicians must be equal partners at the tables where decisions affecting care are made and where resources are allocated.

Supporting health care workers’ mental health is not just about supporting individuals as they cope with unimaginable situations. It is also about improving the environment, processes, policies, and cultures of institutions and their communities. It is about recognizing and clearing away bureaucratic barriers to make it as easy as possible for staff to do exceptionally difficult jobs."

That was an excerpt from an Op-Ed by Wendy Dean and Simon G. Talbot, posted today on STAT. See what you think of their opinions and suggestions. (Bolding added to original text.)

Wendy Dean is a psychiatrist and president and co-founder of the nonprofit organization Moral Injury of Healthcare. Simon G. Talbot is a reconstructive plastic surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, associate professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School, and co-founder of Moral Injury of Healthcare.

Black Maternal Health Research Re-Envisioned:
Best Practices for the Conduct of Research
With, For, and By Black Mamas

The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of a forthcoming report entitled
Black Maternal Health Research Re-Envisioned: Recommendations for Improving
Research on Maternity Care for Black Mamas which provides principles that should
underpin the ethical design of clinical, epidemiological, health services, and public health
research, specifically, with, for, and by Black Mamas.

"The BMMA Research Working Group developed the following holistic care research principles based not only on a forthcoming literature review,61 but also a reflection of the expertise and experiences of the collaborators of and advisors in the group who have worked in maternal health and conducted research with and for Black Mamas for decades. The principles of holistic care are outlined in Table 1 below and are integrated into the research best practices that provide a foundation from which to approach Black Mama populations in the development of programs, interventions, and ethical research design."

That was a brief excerpt from a comprehensive and groundbreaking article by the Black Women Scholars and the Research Working Group of the Black Mamas Matter Alliance*, recently posted on the Harvard Law & Policy Review. Whether you're a researcher or not, please read it in its entirety or, at the very least, read its CONCLUSION. 

* BMMA Research Working Group: Angela D. Aina, Ifeyinwa V. Asiodu, Philicia Castillo, Jill Denson, Courtney Drayton, Rose Aka-James, Inas K. Mahdi, Nia Mitchell, Isabel (Bella) Morgan, Ayanna Robinson, Karen Scott, and Caitlin R. Williams.
Black Women Scholars: Abigail Aiyepola, Helen Arega, Brittany D. Chambers, Joia CrearPerry, Ana Delgado, Kemi Doll, Nikia Grayson, Andrea V. Jackson, Zoë Julian, Cassondra Marshall, Monica R. McLemore, Biftu Mengesha, Sayida Peprah, Jessica Roach, Lynn Roberts, Hedwige (Didi) Saint Louis, Sanithia Williams, and Taida Wolfe.

CASS services are available to all individuals seeking abortion care job opportunities free of charge, including physicians, advanced practice clinicians, nurses, medical assistants, and other healthcare professionals whose skills are critical to the delivery of abortion care.
