Intimate Partner Violence for Florida Nurses
According to the CDC, more than 1 in 4 women and more than 1 in 10 men have experienced sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking ...
According to the CDC, more than 1 in 4 women and more than 1 in 10 men have experienced sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner that resulted in significant health consequences. Victims of IPV are significantly more likely to experience adverse health outcomes compared with the general population, and suffer from severe mental health outcomes like depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and suicidality. Victims of trauma are also more likely to seek health services compared with those with no history of victimization. As such, healthcare visits provide an opportune time to identify patients with a history of IPV and to intervene. Identifying experiences of IPV among patients can also help healthcare providers tailor care to better meet their unique needs. The purpose of this course is to provide Florida nurses and other healthcare professionals with information needed to appropriately care for patients in the clinical setting who may be affected by IPV. The target populations for this course are registered nurses and advanced practice registered nurses practicing in all settings who may encounter patients with a history of IPV. After completion, the participant will be able to assess, document, intervene, and refer patients to appropriate services in an evidence-based, trauma-informed manner. In addition, participants will demonstrate current knowledge on the magnitude and dynamics of IPV and understand strategies to assist with implementing IPV services in healthcare settings. This course meets the Florida state requirement for IPV continuing education for nurses.

Recognizing and Reporting Impairment in the Workplace for Florida Nurses
Despite the continual increase in rates of substance abuse across the country, nurses and other health professionals rarely report thems...
Despite the continual increase in rates of substance abuse across the country, nurses and other health professionals rarely report themselves for treatment of drug or alcohol abuse, even when it impairs their ability to practice. Florida, among other states, has mandated continuing educational credits on recognizing impairment in the workplace for nurses to maintain their licensure. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the state of Florida employed over 213,000 registered nurses (including advanced practice nurses) and licensed practical nurses. With this in mind, Florida's population is at risk for having over 2,000 impaired nursing professionals in the workforce, yet there is currently a lack of knowledge regarding the identification of, reporting requirements for, and treatment options available to impaired professionals working in the healthcare arena.
