Item # N1705  

Course Expiration Date: December 31, 2018

This course contains essential information for healthcare providers on the phenomenon of death, dying, and bereavement. Current research findings are interjected to provide evidence-based information that can be applied to clinical practice. The course reviews interventions in helping those living with life-threatening illness. Content on advance care planning will help learners become better communicators with patients, understanding the differences between a living will, medical power of attorney, informed consent, and a do-not-resuscitate order. This course contains content on grief reactions to loss and communities responding in situations involving sudden death.

Topics covered in this course include homicide and helping in the immediate aftermath as well as grief in the workplace, which will be valuable to any professional, especially a professional responsible for creating bereavement policies. Pre-, inter- and postvention of suicide per current practice is described. With attention to the healthcare professional’s personal and professional stress, the final chapter concentrates on burnout, compassion fatigue, and building resilience.

Pain Management Essentials

Price: $14.95 
Item # N1733  

Expiration Date: September 30, 2019

Pain affects more than 100 million people in the United States. To address the multifactorial aspects of pain, a multimodal approach—using nonpharmacological, pharmacological, and supportive care modalities to manage different types of pain—has been the recommendation according to the most recent guidelines.

Challenges identified among healthcare providers, including advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), are professional knowledge gaps on effective treatment for pain and practicing in professional silos when managing patients who suffer from pain. Collaboration among healthcare providers, interprofessional continuing education, and improved patient communication and empowerment are needed to manage pain appropriately. Furthermore, APRNs have a meaningful and growing opportunity to ensure patients are managed appropriately—balancing pain management and abuse—as they will always encounter those with pain, whether or not it is the patient’s primary issue.

The purpose of this course is to provide evidenced-based information of nonpharmacological and pharmacological therapies for appropriate pain management using a multimodal approach. This course is designed for APRNs practicing in any setting to be able to recommend different modalities to manage those suffering from different types of pain.
