Judy Davidson
Dr. Judy Davidson serves as a nurse scientist for University of California San Diego supporting nurses with project development, presentation and publication. Her research focuses on workplace wellness, and specifically mental health issues, suicide prevention and suicide amongst healthcare professionals. Her team developed the first suicide prevention program for nurses which has been heralded Edge Runner status by the Academy of Nurses: a model for replication. Today she will talk to us about research results, and evidence-based strategies for prevention.

Marie Manthey
Founder and president emeritus of Creative Health Care Management, Marie has long been motivated by one passion: focus on the nurse/patient relationship and its potential for healing.  She earned her BSN and MS in Nursing Administration from the University of Minnesota, where she is adjunct faculty.  Her academic background makes her comfortable working with theories, but her strength is bringing new ideas into reality in a way that makes sense to practitioners and leaders.

Marie’s life work, Primary Nursing and Relationship Based Care, started in one unit at the University of Minnesota and is now recognized and sought after world-wide.  Her ability to describe key clinical practices in universal terms connects with health care executives, and she speaks about practice in a way clinicians can identify with – they get her, and she gets them.  When Marie uses inspirational language, they accept it and feel inspired.

At the height of her career, Marie became addicted to alcohol and started on a journey in recovery that involved a deep transformation that is now in the 43rd year.  Marie has helped develop a peer support program for nurses in the state of Minnesota that is now in the sixth year.  The Nursing Peer Support Network has now helped thousands of nurses into recovery and employment.

Marie lives in Minneapolis, and though she feels she’s entered a more reflective stage of her career, her colleagues and clients seek her counsel every day.
