The Shocking Truth Regarding Job-Related Problems Prior to Nurse Suicide - Online Course

This webinar is a part of Sigma's Casualties of Caring: Nurse Suicide Awareness Series

Part 1 of Sigma's Casualties of Caring: Nurse Suicide Awareness Series

We have known for several years that nurses are at higher risk of suicide than the general population and that nurses have more job-related problems recorded prior to death by suicide. What we have now learned about those job-related problems is troublesome at best with implications for clinicians, educators, risk managers, hospital executives, and all leaders in healthcare. This panel will describe the issues and implications for education, advocacy and policy change necessary to right the wrongs leading to death by suicide amongst nurses. This webinar is a part of Sigma's Casualties of Caring: Nurse Suicide Awareness Series.

Marie Manthey, PhD, RN

The founder and president emeritus of CHCM, Marie has long been motivated by one burning passion: focus on the patient relationship and its potential for healing. She earned her BSN and MS in Nursing Administration from the University of Minnesota, where she remains adjunct faculty. Her academic background makes her comfortable working with theories, but her great strength is bringing new ideas into reality in a way that is universally applicable. Marie's life work started in one unit at the University of Minnesota and is now recognized and sought after world-wide. Her ability to describe key clinical practices in universal terms connects with health care executives, but she speaks about practice in a way clinicians can identify with-they get her, and she gets them. When Marie uses inspirational language, they accept it and feel inspired-their own passion for the work re-kindled, their flames burning as bright as Marie's.
