Links to mindfulness exercises used in presentation: Mindful Breathing & Self-Compassion

Description:  Stress and coping challenges are well-known among midwives and in the midwifery literature.  Long hours, few breaks, a harsh medico-legal environment along with occasional adverse outcomes can create a high stress work environment for midwives.  Attrition among midwives and midwifery students due to stress is common as well.  To mitigate this stress, it is important for midwives and midwifery organizations to consider both individual and institutional methods of self-care.  The practice of mindfulness has been shown to be a very effective individual method for improving midwife coping and decreasing stress.

Join us for a brief review of the literature on stress and coping in midwifery, followed by a mindfulness practice led by Erin Wright, DNP, CNM, APHN-BC, an instructor at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, Certified Nurse-Midwife, and board certified Advanced Practice Holistic Health Nurse!

 Description: The country’s medical system is unable to respond to the increasing needs of the aging population, specifically older adults’ inability to perform basic self-care activities, such as bathing, dressing, and walking. This compromises the health of older adults and costs the country millions of dollars each year.CAPABLE (Community Aging in Place – Advancing Better Living for Elders) is a research study designed to help seniors live more comfortably and safely in their homes. The program is composed of two types of in-home services – Creative Outreach and Physical Function. One type of service is randomly selected for each participant. Teams include an outreach worker or an Occupational Therapist, a Registered Nurse, and a handyman.

In a population of low-income older adults on Medicaid and Medicare (government-sponsored health insurance for low-income and older persons) who participated in CAPABLE:

  • 79% of participants improved their self-care over the course of five months
  • On average, the number of self-care tasks that participants had difficulty with were halved
  • Participants experienced a decrease in depressive symptoms similar to that of anti-depressant medication

The research findings will help to determine if services can help older adults maintain their independence longer.

Speaker Biography: A number of years ago, while making house calls as a nurse practitioner to homebound, low-income elderly patients in West Baltimore, Sarah Szanton noticed that their environmental challenges were often as pressing as their health challenges. Since then she has developed a program of research at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing on the role of the environment and stressors in health disparities in older adults, particularly those trying to “age in place” or stay out of a nursing home. The result is a program called CAPABLE, which combines handyman services with nursing and occupational therapy to improve mobility, reduce disability, and decrease healthcare costs. She is currently examining the program’s effectiveness through grants from the National Institutes of Health and the Innovations Office at the Center on Medicaid and Medicare Services. She is also conducting a study, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, of whether food and energy assistance improve health outcomes for low-income older adults. A former health policy advocate, Dr. Szanton aims her research and publications toward changing policy for older adults and their families.
