Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Drugs for Autoimmune Disease
Autoimmune diseases cause suffering and disability for many people. New biotherapy drugs and older chemotherapy agents have the potential to ease symptoms and improve quality of life. This course provides the information you need to administer these medications and to teach patients about them. The goal of this course is to provide information to nurses related to use of chemotherapy and biotherapy drugs for autoimmune patients so nurses can serve as patient advocates.
Transitional Care Can Reduce Hospital Readmissions
Transitions between care settings are vulnerable periods for all patients, but especially older adults and those with multiple comorbidities. All too often, poor coordination between the acute setting and primary care provider results in poor longitudinal care planning. This course reviews the need for high-quality transitional care initiatives and provides tools to help nurses implement these initiatives so readmission rates are reduced.
Reducing Sepsis Deaths: A Systems Approach to Early Detection and Management
At hospitals across the country, sepsis education is increasing, and more clinicians are using a systems approach for early sepsis identification and timely evidence-based interventions for patients with suspected or known sepsis, severe sepsis or septic shock. This course presents an overview of sepsis, reviews recommendations from SSC’s updated guidelines for managing severe sepsis and septic shock, and describes one hospital’s approach to early detection and management in reducing sepsis-related deaths.
Secondary Stroke Prevention: An Update
Every 40 seconds a stroke occurs in the United States, and of those, 25% are recurrent. The need for better stroke-prevention strategies is crucial and without them, stroke prevalance and costs are expected to rise substantially over the next two decades. This course will describe how nurse's can play a key role in secondary stroke prevention, focusing on ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA).
Patient Care in the Dawn of the Genomic Age
Application of genetics and genomic science to health care is emerging in full force and having a powerful effect on nursing practice. This new era is characterized by its emphasis on addressing individual genetic makeup as part of care, which has profound implications for nurses. This course focuses on three key areas to prepare you for nursing in the genomic age: genetic testing, pharmacogenomics, and ethical and legal implications of genomic-based nursing practice.
