Camille Adair is a registered nurse, filmmaker and entrepreneur. After the 2008 premier of her documentary film, "Solace: Wisdom of the Dying", Camille completed the Solace Teachings, a documentary series with accompanying training materials focused on end of life, hospice and palliative care.
The Solace Teachings are an excellent tool for healthcare organizations, community groups and anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of death and dying.
Based on her career in hospice and palliative care, Camille’s passion for creative healthcare solutions led her to create FairCare, a sustainable healthcare model based on the principles of the triple bottom line, where businesses consider their relationship to the planet, people and profit.
Camille joins a growing number of like-hearted colleagues who are committed to positive change and a new healthcare paradigm based in environmental justice, social equity and the impacts of the aging population contrasted by the shrinking healthcare workforce.

During this National Nurses Week episode of RN.FM Radio, we will be joined by Susan Sullivan, BSN, MSN, who serves as the Secretary for the National Nursing Network Organization (NNNO).
Susan Sullivan recently retired after more than 45 years in nursing, the final 20 of which were in Public Health. After completing her BSN at California State University, Los Angeles and her MSN at Loma Linda University, Susan worked for 10 years as Nursing Supervisor in a large acute hospital and taught nursing at Long Beach City College. During the latter half of her nursing career, Susan worked in public health where her leadership experiences in the acute hospital and teaching helped prepare her for the challenges she found in community nursing. An accomplished nurse with a career focus on public health, Susan will speak with us specifically about the campaign to create the position of a National Nurse for Public Health within the Public Health Service.

As time goes on we will witness our parents and loved ones get older. Through the process of aging we will be forced to make decisions about their care if they are unable to care for themselves.
Some families are fortunate enough to take their loved ones into their own homes and provide in-home care. But what happens when we are forced to admit our loved ones into a facility which we find later to offer sub-standard care?
Well, on this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to discuss the nature of care offered by nursing home facilities, and how they affect the care and over-all health of our loved ones and seniors.

Join us on March 25th at 7PM as we discuss the sensitive topics of death and loss. Though not easily talked about, they are events that all of us must eventually face. Children experience all the same emotions as adults; yet they may lack the vocabulary to put it into words. Helping children and adults adequately express their feelings is vital to finding comfort and hope when a loved one dies.
Guests for our round-table discussion will include Krista Schueler (Account Executive) and Jennifer Gilbert (Social Worker) from Emerald Hospice & Gentiva Healthcare. Topics will range from the facts and myths surrounding hospice care to the role of hospice with patients and families, and how to help the caregiver. Bereavement support groups will also be discussed, with special emphasis on resources to help children cope before, during and after losing a loved one.
We welcome listeners to call in with comments and questions during the episode. Explore additional resources at:
