Congratulations to Andrew Greenway, MSN, RN, CCRN, ACCNS-AG in the component New Knowledge, Innovations, and Improvements
An exemplary researcher, innovator, and clinician/leader, Andrew Greenway is a clinical nurse specialist at the William Randolph Hearst Burn Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City. For almost four decades, he has championed patient care innovations that integrate evidence into practice. Collaborating with a team of NYP ICU nurses, a rapid critical care training program was created for non-ICU nurses that was instrumental in helping the hospital cope with the influx of severely ill patients during New York’s COVID-19 peak surge in 2020. Greenway’s original research as principal investigator to identify early risk factors for skin failure among COVID-19 patients has improved and personalized care interventions. To improve care for pediatric burn patients, Greenway has published on the emerging novel multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) and, with a team of collaborators, he partnered in creating and validating a pediatric burn-specific injury early warning score tool. Greenway is currently leading an interprofessional partnership to find common ground among social workers, therapists, physicians, chaplains, and nursing to identify synergistic palliative nursing care and spiritual interventions for surgical intensive care unit patients, while expanding access to hospice care. The New Knowledge, Innovations, and Improvements award is sponsored by HealthStream.
