  • Penny Moore will present "How Many Nurses Do We Need? Developing an Acuity Tool for Ambulatory Infusion Clinics." She'll explain how a comprehensive cancer center used an acuity tool to improve productivity and nurse-to-patient ratios, permitting the creation of a new nursing position.
  • Dereen Houck will present "An Educational Intervention to Help Nurses Cope With Grief and Compassion Fatigue." She'll highlight aspects of a three-part program addressing cumulative grief and compassion fatigue, holistic self-care, and spiritual self-healing. The program was designed specifically for community hospital nurses who indicated that they preferred to grieve alone.
