Expiration Date: December 31, 2019

Diabetes mellitus is a complex, chronic metabolic disease that is becoming increasingly common. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are increasing in incidence in pediatric populations. There are excellent guidelines for the care of children with type 1 diabetes, but few research-based guidelines exist that are specific to the care of children with type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, few interventions for type 2 diabetes in youth have been successful, making prevention of obesity by lifestyle interventions even more crucial.

The purpose of this course is to assist nurses in a variety of settings to understand the complex metabolic, developmental, emotional, and social implications for a child with diabetes and the family. Understanding the unique considerations for this population will assist the nurse to provide supportive and flexible care. Nurses in schools, clinics, primary care offices, and hospitals need to be knowledgeable caregivers and educators for these families to enhance diabetes care and provide much needed emotional support. The ongoing epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes in youth affords an opportunity for nurses to be involved in community-wide efforts to influence risk factors, promote lifestyle changes, and potentially prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes.

Expiration Date: September 30, 2020

This course provides an overview of Alzheimer's disease (AD), the biological processes related to AD, the criteria for its diagnosis, and key approaches which nurses can adopt in order to better understand, prevent, and effectively respond to the challenging behaviors demonstrated by patients who experience dementia, and specifically AD.

The role of the registered nurse and the advanced practice nurse in the care of persons with dementia is incorporated throughout the course. In addition to providing information that brings new knowledge to both the experienced and less experienced nurse, the course reinforces key concepts of how to care for the person with AD and other dementias. This knowledge, in turn, will ensure that the care delivered to this group of society's vulnerable older adults is evidence-based, patient-centered, and individually tailored to meet their changing needs, while optimizing care, maintaining quality of life, and when possible improving health outcomes.
