John J. Gallagher, DNP, RN, CCNS, CCRN-K, TCRN, RRT, FCCM, will bring his experiences and teaching enjoyment to SCCM’s 2022 Critical Care Congress, where he will lead the thought leader session “Critical Care Nurses and COVID-19.”
John J. Gallagher, DNP, RN, CCNS, CCRN-K, TCRN, RRT, FCCM, is a professor, clinical nurse specialist, and director of simulation education at the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing. He has always enjoyed teaching, especially in the clinical environment. “I see my work as developing and mentoring our next generation of clinicians,” he said.
Dr. Gallagher has more than 30 years of experience in trauma and critical care nursing and is recognized as a clinical expert in mechanical ventilation, respiratory monitoring, resuscitation, intra-abdominal hypertension/compartment syndrome, and ventilator-associated events. He currently serves on the board of directors of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, the National Institutes of Health’s COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel, and the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SSCM) Airway and Mechanical Ventilation Task Force. He also serves as faculty for SCCM’s Fundamental Critical Care Support course.
Dr. Gallagher will bring his experiences and teaching enjoyment to SCCM’s 2022 Critical Care Congress, where he will lead the thought leader session “Critical Care Nurses and COVID-19.” His session will feature an open discussion focused on lessons learned during the ongoing pandemic, as well as conversations about innovations and new opportunities to improve both patient care and the work environment.
The goal, Dr. Gallagher said, is to have everyone in attendance learn from one another. “The challenges faced by critical care teams during the pandemic were unprecedented and required rapid adaptation in clinical practices and operations,” he said. “The unique perspective, insight, and innovations that were developed have great potential to improve patient care and outcomes moving forward. The benefit of learning from these experiences should not be lost over time.”
Dr. Gallagher hopes that attendees recognize the value of the lessons they learned throughout the pandemic and that they will leverage those lessons to improve the healthcare system, build resiliency within teams, and improve patient care.
