Introduction: Every year in the United States, more than 5.7 million patients are admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU), of which 25-50% develop ICU-acquired weakness (ICU-AW), defined as new onset weakness that occurs during critical illness. Patients with ICU-AW have worse outcomes including increased mortality, longer hospitalizations, worse quality of life years after they leave the ICU, and greater healthcare costs. Early mobilization is a low-risk strategy associated with…

Improving compliance with venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk stratification processes in perioperative patients requires a team approach and a formidable clinical learning environment (CLE). Using interprofessional (IP) teamwork and quality improvement (QI) training within an inpatient surgical setting, Surgery Residents (SR), and Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (ACNP) students can collaborate and become team leaders in clinical improvements. While participating in an individually-…

Professional Wellness has been a hot topic across professions for a decade, and recent events such as the COVID-19 pandemic and rising racial tensions have made self-care all that much more important.

As such, there is an opportunity to intermingle a critical professionalism…
