This is the third article in a series on nurse innovators, which focuses whenever possible on nurse-engineer partnerships and outlines working, replicable models of collaboration between the two disciplines. In this installment, we profile Brian Mohika, BSN, RN, creator of CathWear-a wearable medical device that supports patients with catheter drainage leg bags. His nine-year journey of successes and challenges highlights the value of early, real-time collaboration with an interdisciplinary team, and underscores the need for nurses to see themselves as innovators.
