Dear students, faculty and staff,

Well, it certainly has been an unusual year. They say that every cloud has a silver lining. The silver lining for me in all that we have fought through this semester is YOU. This year has reinforced in a big way what I already knew about you—you care about others and SHU’s mission and values; you are resilient and adaptable; you are creative and find new ways to overcome challenges; you are hard-working and determined in the face of adversity; you are Pioneers in every sense of the word.

Needs Assessment Of Podcast Use For Professional Development And Lifelong Learning In Crnas, Sydney Loesing

DNP Final Project Depository

In the rapidly evolving world of medical education and content, professional development is not just a choice, it is an obligation.

A needs assessment was performed to determine if anesthesia-focused podcasts are a valuable component to professional development and lifelong learning. The needs assessment survey encompassed 14 questions that looked at participant demographics, overall outlooks and preferences on current anesthesia-focused podcasts, desired modes of professional development, and ...

Academic and community members from the University of KY and the University of Cincinnati developed and pilot-tested a family-centered, youth-engaged home radon testing toolkit. The radon toolkit included radon information, and how to test, interpret, and report back findings. We educated youth as citizen scientists and their teachers in human subjects protection and home radon testing using the toolkit in the classroom ...
