"It's so much more than the cords!"


Phi Pi will be here!




The Phi Pi chapter has been asked to host an event at this Sigma Theta Tau event.  
This event is designed to help leaders in both academic and clinical settings develop, implement, and maintain strategies that will improve their organization's work environment. 
With the success of our SAFE- Stuffed Animals For Emergencies event at September's Sigma Leadership Succession, Sigma has asked Phi Pi to recreate this on a large scale for the Creating Healthy Work Environments event.  
Hundreds of plush animals will be stuffed in this Phi Pi workshop.  They will then be donated to a local charity (TBA) in person for a full experience of giving and helping children in need.

SAFE...Stuffed Animals for Emergencies 

Phi Pi is proud to announce the kick off of our new volunteer program.
At the recent Sigma Leadership Connection, leaders of Phi Pi worked together to stuff plush animals and then deliver them to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, IN.

This was very well received!
If any Phi Pi members have a children's hospital, fire department, homeless shelter, ... they would like to donate to, please connect with the Phi Pi admin at admin@phipi.org and we will help get you all set up.  Phi Pi will help you choose the animals you would like to create (similar to "Build a Bear"), pay for and ship them to you, and help with the donation arrangements.  

Let's make a difference to as many children in need as we can!

Continuing Education

Nurse Tim Webinar of the Month

Pediatric Assessment: A Review of Three Tools
Webinar Link: nursetim.com/PediatricAssessment

Pediatrics nursing requires knowledge and tools specific to this vulnerable population. Faculty and practitioners need to be current on the best tools and strategies for assessing, planning and communicating care for pediatric patients. This webinar will present rationale, uses and examples for the Pediatric Early Warning Score (PEWS), Pain scales (FLACC, CRIES, CHEOPS) and Pediatric Assessment Triangle (PAT). Rationale for why the tools are used in the pediatric population will be discussed.

OBJECTIVES
• Explain the purpose for using the PEWS tool, Pediatric pain scales and Pediatric Assessment Triangle.
• Analyze a pediatric patient’s behavioral status, color, and vital signs to correctly calculate a PEWS, pain score, and level of distress.
• Explain the importance of having standard assessment tools to enhance communication between healthcare providers.

PRESENTER: Christine Howell, RN, BSN, CEN
Christine has been a nurse for 22 years. Her experience includes cardiac, OB, and radiology nursing. The majority of her career has been in the Emergency Department taking care of pediatric and adult patients. She also teaches nursing students at local colleges in the clinical setting. She is currently a student at Walden University pursuing a Master’s in Nursing Education, expected to graduate August 2018.
