Vocera hosts webinar on designing and implementing Code Lavender® programs

Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, is hosting a webinar about Code Lavender®, apowerful approach for addressing care team burnout and well-being. The complimentary webinar is Thursday, March 15, from 2-3 p.m. EDT and will provide tools for designing a successful Code Lavender program.

Code Lavender is an integrative healing equivalent of a Code Blue. A formalized rapid response, a Code Lavender program is designed to support patients, families, physicians, nurses, and staff members in times of emotional distress. Code Lavender services provide valuable resources that can support and strengthen individual resilience after being presented with a difficult case, diagnosis, or loss.

First launched as Patient Lavender at North Hawaii Community Hospital by Earl Bakken, founder of Medtronic, Code Lavender has evolved and expanded across healthcare organizations. For the past 15 years, Vocera Chief Medical Officer Bridget Duffy, MD, has been introducing and implementing the program in hospitals around the world. This webinar, moderated by Dr. Duffy, will feature the Code Lavender program at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in California, where the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has integrated a holistic approach to caring for staff and supporting care team well-being.

Join Jill Sproul, Chief Nursing Officer at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, Nancy Nielsen, NICU Unit Nurse, and Dr. Bridget Duffy for this online event. These three healthcare leaders will discuss how to plan, implement and communicate an impactful Code Lavender response program. Click here to register for this webinar.
