50th Anniversary Seminar Series 

Managing the COVID Surge 2020/2021: “Pop-up” Units and the Centralized Throughput Office

Stony Brook University Hospital Collaboration

 

Presenter:  Allison Copenhaver, MSN, RN, NEA-BC ---- Associate Director of Nursing, Medicine Services, Stony Brook University Hospital

Thursday, February 18th, 2021

5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. EST

 

Location: Virtual via Zoom

Description: 1.0 CEU Credits

 

The surge of COVID-19 patients that began in March of 2020 and continues today pressed immediate changes on healthcare organizations.  Plans for bed expansion and patient management were rapidly being made and implemented. Stony Brook Medicine was fortunate to have opened a new 100 bed pavilion and the Mart building in October 2019 providing the Expansion Team with several empty spaces to work with. These spaces became “Pop Up” units.   Stony Brook patients, in their new bed locations, require tracking from admission to discharge. The Centralized Throughput office, which opened in November 2019, took on this monumental task with great success. There are many departments, people, supplies, staffing, communication and general support needed to achieve these expansion and tracking goals.  These quick changes to the hospital volume and the placement of patients also required physical changes, process changes, successes and lessons learned in this journey. 

  • Gain understanding of the complex work required to emergently open hospital beds.
  • Appreciate the role of the Centralized Throughput Office in the regulation of bed assignments. 
  • Describe methods of communication that enhance team performance.

Nurses’ self-care practices may contribute to improving work engagement, job satisfaction, and prevent burnout.

Join these Stony Brook alumni, now CNOs, describe how they maintain self-care practices for themselves and promote such practices for the nurses within their organization.

Multidisciplinary Approaches to Obesity Care

Stony Brook University, School of Medicine Collaboration

 

Friday, April 30th, 2021

12:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST

 

Location: Virtual via Zoom

Description: 4 CEU Credits

 

Presenter information to be determined 

 

Overweight and obesity affects up to 68% of individuals in the United States and is associated with a number of comorbid medical illnesses and substantial impairment in quality of life. For many years obesity was thought to be a result of poor dietary choices and low motivation for physical activity leading many providers to label obesity as a lifestyle concern rather than a health concern worth of attention. Although in more recent year’s scientific evidence has shown that obesity is a complex medical condition that involves multiple physiological systems and is influenced by a myriad of psychosocial factors, clinical training, guidelines and practice still do not consistently reflect this. As such, many providers lack knowledge of and training in evidence-based interventions for overweight and obesity. Additionally, studies indicate that many health care providers are perpetrators of weight related stigma. Weight related stigma can significantly and negatively impact individuals with obesity both psychologically and physically; thus, it is important that providers receive training in how to prevent weight bias and weight-based stigma. Furthermore, many providers often find it difficult to appropriately discuss weight and obesity with their patients. Therefore, this educational workshop aims to address gaps in knowledge and training regarding obesity interventions, the use of shared decision making aids and strategies to discuss treatments for overweight and obesity, and weight bias, by providing education regarding evidence based interventions for obesity, shared decision making in the context of overweight and obesity, and how to prevent and address weight based stigma and teach providers skills they can use to discuss obesity and weight management with their patients, and motivate their patients to engage in health behavior changes that can assist in addressing overweight and obesity. 

 

At the end of the event, participants should be able to: 

(1) Discuss evidence-based interventions that are available to patients with obesity

(2) Define shared decision-making models Utilize shared decision-making tools to discuss treatment options for patients with overweight or obesity.

(3) Provide appropriate referrals to clinicians and programs that can provide evidence-based interventions for obesity.

(4) Discuss weight-based stigma, the impact of weight bias and weight-based stigma.

(5) Describe ways to prevent weight bias and weight stigma in a health care setting.

(6) Implement strategies for talking to patients about obesity and interventions for obesity.
