020: The Importance of On-Site Supporters with Brandi Peachey
Even the most ingenious project can’t succeed if the people on the ground aren’t willing to implement it. That’s why it’s so important to find stakeholders, fellow nurses, and other staff members in the clinic setting who truly believe in your project. These on-site champions are the key to a successful, impactful project.
In this episode, we’re talking with Brandi Peachey, Penn State pediatric ICU nurse and undergraduate nursing instructor. She’s sharing her experience working with adolescents to detect early signs of substance abuse. Plus, she’s explaining why it’s so important to find an on-site champion to ensure the success of your project.
