Attorney/Nurse Offers Covid-19 Video Survival Guide for Healthcare Professionals
Starting April 14, 2020, Attorney and Nurse Lorie Brown, R.N., M.N., J.D., is offering a free video speaker series to nurses across the U.S. and the world to help them deal with the stress and daily demands of helping and treating COVID patients. Brown has created the COVID-19 Video Survival Guide for Nurses and Healthcare Practitioners to help those at the epicenter of this relentless and highly contagious virus. A new video will be emailed to the recipient every day.
"Being a nurse myself, as well as an attorney, I know what it's like to deal with the stress of exposure to illness while still wanting to provide the best care possible to patients. I was a nurse at St. John's Hospital, Santa Monica, CA at the height of the AIDS crisis. Multiply that times a thousand, and you can only begin to understand what nurses across the globe are going through right now. I wanted to do something to help nurses get through their day, armed with a new perspective, an enlightened opinion, or maybe just a fresh glimmer of hope before entering into the front lines of COVID healthcare once again."
The speaker series features 18 experts from across the country including an infectious-disease physician, a nurse practitioner on hypnotherapy, board-certified homeopath, workers' compensation and unemployment law attorneys, and several nurses with expertise in the areas of intuitive eating, mindfulness, meditation, nutrition, and sleep. Each speaker segment is under thirty minutes – enough time to digest on a nurse's commute to work. One can pick and choose one or more segments that can be shared with others across all social media platforms.
