Expiration Date: October 31, 2020

This course addresses some of the more common age-related health concerns, including elder abuse, memory changes, and common chronic conditions associated with aging, and discusses how healthcare professionals can help older adults manage these conditions. It is important for nurses to be aware of the factors that interfere with successful aging and the factors that encourage a healthy lifestyle. Means of coping with loss, disability, and chronic conditions are discussed along with measures that promote a healthy lifestyle. Depression and options for its treatment are described, as well as prevention.

This course also provides an overview of end-of-life issues. Palliative and hospice care can deliver much-needed health care as well as psychological and spiritual support for patients and their caregivers. The goal of hospice and palliative care is to reduce patients' distressing symptoms (physical, emotional, and spiritual) and improve their quality of life. Making appropriate and timely referrals for hospice and palliative care is one way that nurses can prevent needless suffering for patients with life-threatening conditions and assist their patients in addressing end-of-life issues.

Expiration Date: November 30, 2019

Home health care is the fastest growing industry in the United States based on the projection period of 2014-2024. The anticipated employment growth for the period is more than 760,000 jobs, reaching a total of over 2 million. While some of these jobs are for home health aides and personal care aides, a wide variety of healthcare professionals will be needed, particularly registered nurses.

This course provides the nurse with an understanding of the structure of home health agencies, the federal regulations and reimbursement system, and standards of care and professional practice. The home care nurse cannot “just” provide exceptional clinical care in terms of assessment and treatments but must also provide this care in the context of the larger healthcare and home care system. The course is designed for both new and experienced home health nurses as well as those nurses who may be interested in pursuing a career in home health or who may work closely with home health agencies.
