Let's talk about what we can learn from family #caregivers during the #COVID19 pandemic. Can the friends and families who care for someone else teach us something about #resilience and #wellbeing? 1/11

#Caregiving can have a positive impact on our lives - helping us to feel valued as part of a care team, closer to those in our care. When we #care, we can have an improved sense of #purpose & even extend our life expectancy 2/11

While we're buying ALL the toilet paper, have we noticed that the #hiddenheroes in our midst -- the #caregivers might have something to offer having been through these same worries before? 3/11

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

The @WaysMeansCmte hearing on #paidleave is getting started, and I am eager to hear how the #research enters the #policy debate!

@WaysMeansCmte Republican @RepKevinBrady talks about the multiple proposals for #paidleave. Read more about evidence-informed policy provisions, which include #caregiving and #medical leave as well as leave for #newchildren:

@WaysMeansCmte @RepKevinBrady @RosaDeLauro notes that low-income Americans struggle to afford paid leave. Indeed, research finds that 57% of employees earning $30,000 or less take on debt after a partially compensated or uncompensated #caregiving leave.

@Dementiawho @bikerwise It was intuitively smart to stay focused on positives to calm your own amygdala (ancient part of human brain that fires up in fight/flight/fright/freeze response) because anxiety is contagious & causes the person living with #dementia to catch it (the downside of being social...)
@Dementiawho @bikerwise When your amygdala turns on your more modern frontal cortex (part of brain where you have insight, empathy, judgment, ability to properly initiate, sequence, terminate then move on in multi-step tasks) shuts down. This part of brain is damaged 1st in some #dementia causes like...
@Dementiawho @bikerwise ...#FTD & #CTE but as any #dementia cause spreads, the frontal lobes get consumed & die so you the #carer #caregiver #carepartner have the bigger brain & it needs to stay functioning & do more work.

W/ so many great #2020Election candidates, it’s sometimes hard to objectively compare! #TuesdayThoughts

@govtrack provides great info, incl scorecards of legislative performance. Here’s what they say about some of our candidates (in graphics!)—THREAD

#factsfirst #transparency
Check out @KamalaHarris - she is rockin’ it among Senate Freshman. Progressive Punch ranks her the #1 most progressive Senator. She sponsors/cosponsored more bills for #civilrights & liberties, #minorityIssues than almost anyone else in 115th Congress.
@SenGillibrand #1 most liberal was a surprise! She’s great in a lot of areas and she gets things done!! I 💙 that advocates for moms & young families & especially that she cares so much about #caregiving issues. We have an #eldercare crisis coming and don’t talk about it enough.
