Ep 178: How Cochrane Collaborates to Promote Evidence-Based Decision Making

The healthcare industry has always depended on collaboration to advance medicine and improve care for patients. Much of that collaboration comes in the form of sharing findings from studies and research, which is what the Cochrane Network tries to compile into thorough and systemic reviews. By working with clinicians, policymakers, providers, and even CRNAs like Dru Riddle, PhD, DNP, CRNA, FAAN, Cochrane promotes evidence-based decision making across healthcare, and today we’ll learn more about the US Network and the role it plays for CRNAs.

Ep 177: The Path to Full Practice Authority in the Air Force

The fight to give CRNAs full practice authority continues in states across the country but there have been some important victories along the way. All you need to do is look to our military to find a model that many people would like to see across the profession as the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force have all removed restrictions on CRNAs. Today we’ll talk with Air Force Colonel Jan Setnor, MSN, CRNA, who was one of the key people involved in helping the Air Force gain that authority and she’ll share the story of how it all happened.

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
