About Wellness is a beautiful and powerful video message by Sarah Stewart Gomes that
pays tribute to her mother, Jan Stewart , and warns viewers of the terrible toll
that addiction can take on nurse anesthetists and their loved ones. Sarah's message
struck a nerve and has been widely requested by directors of nurse anesthesia educational
programs, state nurse anesthetist association presidents, peer assistance advisors,
and members charged with and interested in creating awareness of addiction and other
obstacles to wellness. It also speaks to ALL nurses about this devastating disease.
The manual is currently available online as a downloadable PDF file. It is to be
published in the future. When I obtain that information I will post it here. Additional
publications and presentations from the NCSBN regarding SUD in nursing can be found
at this link, “Substance Use Disorder in Nursing Guidelines Forum”.
