'Health Matters' was the best presentation that I have ever been too. There were so many

 comments/questions I thought of during your talk, but when the time came, I just couldn't remember them! I need to run out and get my B12 and vitamin D quickly!

Thank you for such an entertaining hour and a half.

What was the most important thing you learned today and why?

·         Primary focus in diabetes is reducing heart disease and decreasing lipids (LDL) did not know that!

·         All of the different lab results and what they might mean and what medications can cause the abnormal values.

·         Why you need (?) for diabetes.  She made sure we understood why.

·         #1 cause of heart disease is diabetes

·         Correlating abnormal lab levels in patient’s in the acute care setting (WBC’s, albumin, etc.)

·         You should take a statin if you have diabetes.  Metformin is a great drug.  All the different drug interactions.  What medications you should be on if diabetic.

·         New medications used for diabetes and new research because we see it a lot in the clinical setting and the research changes frequently.

·         Changes in diabetic  and lab practices

·         Different reasons for diabetes.  Correlation between cholesterol and diabetes.  Herbal and over-the-counter meds and platelet aggregation.

·         LIMA and RIMA don’t developed plague

·         I learned new information on medication interactions I did not previously know.  also, some medications affect a certain labs.  Very helpful!

·         How to care for my diabetic patients and what labs mean in specific cases.

·         The problems with long term PPI use.  The importance of Vit B12 and Vit D supplementation

·         Learned the importance of lab values, and diabetes importance and how to better take care of patients here at MMC.

·         Watching pts on PPI’s.  looking for other dx’s with s/s including DM. DM and heart health importance.

·         Diabetes and statins and metformin the diabetic kidney neutorphils

·         Different medication effects and relation to diabetes

·         About corresponding meds that pts should be on.  Focus on DM now and implications very important to practice.  Enjoyed the medications and cellular info

·         Importance of monitoring and treating high LDLs in pts with diabetes mellitus

·         Diabetes education

·         To buy Vt D, Vt B12, and estrogen J seriously – to question pts on all meds and supplement at admission.

·         Effects of diabetes on the various organs.  The effects of various diabetes meds on lab values

·         We aren’t providing the most recent advancements for care.  How come?  Barb exposed many deficiencies on what we do here.

·         Lots of things diabetes info mostly

·         Lose 1% of function each year after 30 years old.

·         Causes of type I diabetes; actions of newer drugs.

·         Labs and meds update better understanding

·         Diabetes and medications – especially with the interactions with foods and other medications.

·         Very informative speaker

·         That metformin is a great drug! Interpreting WC differentials

·         Mateformain the wonder drug.  Glipizide is bad.

·         I don’t’ know where to start. Excellent all the way around.

·         PEARLS involved in treatment decisions in DM many tidbits to pass onto patients as well.

·         PPI information, vt B12 info

·         Importance of lipids/diabetes

·         Medications

·         The elder pt on Coumadin can have increase bleeding tendency when taking sulfa drugs or monistat for vaginal yeast infection due to “knocking a drug warfarin off it’s binding sites, thus increase free drug warfarin in blood stream, and increase bleeding time.  This person’s PT/INR needs closer watching to adjust.

·         Comprehensive assessment and treatment of diabetes should not be underestimated.  Clinical manifestations and laboratory results interpretation must reconcile.

·         More understanding about why certain meds can affect diabetes and testing that clue us in early … because I am one! (diabetic)

·         B12 & Vt D deficiencies while taking PPI.  B12 helps ward off Alzheimer’s.  How diabetes and cardiovascular disease go hand in hand.  How metformin is now the new to go to drug.

·         Checking LDL levels that is correlated to having diabetes

·         Medications stacking – I like the way this was presented for ease of remembering.

·         Honestly too many to list!  hands down the best!  Thank you Memorial for having this for free!

·         Lots of Great Review

·         Barb continues to be able to take content and present it in a fun memorable way. I still remember her Polar Bear liver story from years ago and that is without taking my vitamin B12 J

·         That I enjoyed being exposed to knowledge just for the sake of learning something new and that I should do it more often.

·         Metformin = miracle drug – didn’t realize ALL side effects aside from tx of diabetes for tx other co-morbidities.

·         Importance of D3, stacking of meds for treating diabetes, and effects of using PPIs long term.

·         Lots of excellent take always for both diabetes and lab value.

·         The diabetic patient – multiple drugs treatment – diabetic patients should be starter on “statins”

·         The effects of pharmacology on labs will help me “look outside the box” when treating pts will also make me ask about herbals more when getting meds lists for pts.

·         Use of statins in diabetes heart disease prevention basal/bolus insulin treatment.

·         Always get a diff with WBC since it can establish what cause is for increase WBC

·         Estrogens role in females health

·         Learning much more about diabetes and how to care for the pt as we care for a lot of DKA on our floor

·         Multi drug treatment for DM is best

·         Bactrim and increase KT

·         The role of statins in diabetic patients.  diabetes is a complicated diagnosis and I feel muc more comfortable with it.

·         LDLs – diabetes is changing  use multiple meds to cover the many caveats of diabetes.

 

What can MHS do to support you in utilizing the most important thing you learned?

·         Have MDs hear this evidence and apply it – there’s only so much an RN can do without the MDs orders to back you up.

·         Provide inservices to help identify different diseases and how labs and medications can affect them and how to identify the diseases based on the lab work.

·         Make sure our (all of our) docs know this information.  Unbelievable what this woman knows!

·         Improve diabetic teaching to our patients.  (?) diabetic educators to and in educating our pats.  Nurses on floor do not have ample time to adequate teach diabetic care.

·         HealthStream courses/modules

·         All diabetic educators should have to attend this.

·         I think that the information we were presented with would be extremely helpful and MHS if it was also presented to MDs and residents.

·         Continue education for changes in practices

·         Get physician to get up to (?) insulin orders

·         Hear the recommendations made through research and use it in practice for best patient outcomes.

·         Make the diabetes and Wh & (?) programs be more accessible to patients at a lower cost.  Patients have said “they are too hard to work with!”

·         Update all sites of diabetes regularly and have up to date info on it.

·         Send out online tidbits from conferences.

·         More free conference for employees

·         Encourage physicians to facilitate partnerships with nursing and treat as partners instead of subordinates.  Continue to have relevant nursing conferences for nursing.

·         More conferences with barb

·         Put into clinical practice the newest findings.

·         More information to use to teach patients about diabetes – time to do it. J

·         More like Barb such as trauma

·         Make diabetic educators and or diabetic teaching materials for staff and patients more readily available on Nursing units to hand out hand teach patients with.

·         Free community access to wellness for diabetics

·         Continue with more programming like this.

·         Continue education of staff and providers.

·         Have pharmacy red flag sulfa drugs use in the elderly who are on Coumadin and maybe MD could order a different med instead of using sulfa drugs

·         Patient education is a must…follow up in the community should also be available.

·         Review that education extends to the patient in some form.  Educational materials and provide this information to MDs who didn’t attend.  we seem to be a little behind in use of meds for diabetics.

·         Have physicians listen to her lecture.

·         It helps not only me, but also the people attended this diabetic conference. This up to date conferences taught us a lot not only for our patients as well as for the family and community as well.  Thank you very much.

·         More of these conferences.

·         Have her come back again! She is absolutely amazing!  Never had an instructor that I learned so much from! Puts in common sense terms, makes it so everyone truly understands!  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

·         Allow time to share with others that we work with.

·         Continue to offer free CEUs by engaging, entertaining speakers.

·         Hire more diabetic educators

·         Continue to provide great conferences like this one.

·         Clinical updates

·         Spread this info via CBL on labs

Comments

  • Excellent presentation of information and speaker knowledgeable and "entertaining"

  • Barbara is a terrific speaker and great teacher. I would have liked a little more time, unfortunately the weather seemed to be a factor in rushing through the presentation. I would have like more time to discuss BS patterns and appropriate treatment to manage and more discussion on types of Insulin to use as economic alternatives and appropriate use of the less expensive Insulins. This could easily be a 2 day presentation.

  • Thank you, Barb for yet another great program. This is #3 and I will be back. How many makes me a barb "groupie"? With your presentations I learn, I retain, and I gain info that I use in my professional practice (as well as personally).

  • I have never enjoyed a conference or speaker more than Ms. Bancroft; absolutely wonderful! The best ever!

  • What can I say, excellence personified.

  • This is a fantastic presentation and very helpful.

  • Barb is a "10" not merely a "4".

  • You are the absolute best.

  • Barb what are you planning for next summer? Please put me on an email list.

  • Excellent, let me know of future seminars

  • Awesome, great overview. I learned a lot. Thanks!

  • Great knowledge of content. Some good ideas for teaching complex issues to students. Humor such an asset.

  • Great 3 days -- much, much good info and entertainment. Thanks.

  • Please do this again! There are not enough knowledgeable speakers who can make pharmacology understandable and fun too. Thank you for your expertise.

  • Again, I enjoyed the whole presentation and infusion of humor by Barb. What a gift. When I grow up I want to be just like her!

  • Super as usual. Barb has raised the bar again, presenting complex material in a humorous way. Yet, factual with drug interactions, considerations, etc.

  • Phenomenal. Another fact filled fun fuelled day. I hope you are not offended if I adopt some of your style. Your wit and homespun humor kept me engaged. Continue to mention sex and race differences as you have these last 3 days. You are just terrific.

  • Overall, this was fabulous. I learned a great deal that I can directly apply when teaching.

  • Barb was excellent as always. Enjoyable, entertaining and educational. I love this conference. I become energized.

  • Please continue to have these each summer for us!

  • Thanks for the tips, travel, shows, haircuts, attractions. This personalized the conference and makes people comfortable and want to come back. I want to come back!!

  • Very good, thank you.

  • Alpha receptor day -- covered too fast. I would have liked to have more info on opiods/pain, chronic pain. There is tolerance -- differentiate between tolerance and addiction better.

  • Barb effectively used slides and anecdotal information to illustrate her points. She is highly engaging. I felt like she had to rush through some important information at the end to make her 3 pm deadline but she finished strong.

  • Barb is extremely enjoyable to listen to and makes everything very understandable.

  • As usual, Barb is very entertaining and informative! Enjoyed a lot!

  • Please include bibliography list.

  • Loved it as always!

  • DVDs are such great learning tools.

  • This has been the most informative, personable seminar I have attended, surpassing the NLN Education Summit. This was $ well spent.

  •  Better than excellent

  •  Wonderful, please keep these coming!

  • Loved the patho!

  • Excellent

  • Awesome

  • Learning SO much.

  • Very knowledgeable and funny.

  • Great content. Many handy reminders and mnemonics to help as our memories fade. Thank you.

  • I appreciate the link to the pathophysiology that explains the side effects. Thank you.

  • Great as usual.

  • Barb is such a dynamic speaker who keeps your attention at every moment. What a wealth of knowledge and experience!

  • It would be helpful if the program outline was included in the book.

  • Great conference

  • Barb was the meat and potatoes on the plate. Linda was the knife and fork!

  • Overall, excellent program.

  • Loved Barb! She is amazing!

  • Insensitivity to elders made me somewhat uncomfortable at times

I just want to let you know you were by far the highlight of the MICNP conference this past weekend. I so thoroughly enjoyed your talk on Heart Disease in Women and I learned so much! I went back to my parents home to pick up my two young children and found myself reviewing your lecture with both my mother and my father. Today my mom emailed me this article and I thought you might find it amusing since you already knew everything!! http://www.lifescript.com/

 

I hope to get the chance to listen to you again!!

 

Thank you

It couldn't have been more perfect timing to have you go first; your wonderful humor and enthusiasm perked up a pretty tired bunch who've been sitting in meetings the last 3 days. Thanks so much again; I hope you'll want to participate in future conferences. You were a HUGE hit!!!!!!!!
 
Again, thanks so much, Barb. I always love your presentations and envy your ability to speak to practically every topic a NP could ever hope to have knowledge about. You are "multi-expertised" ; and an awesome asset to our profession.
 
Happy Nurses Week!!
