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: December 31, 2019

Nurses have been educated to practice professional nursing and use their specialized skills to care for patients. Unfortunately, most nurses are not knowledgeable or skilled enough in leadership to effect the required changes in health care today. Nurses must expand their repertoire of knowledge and skills to practice in today's multifaceted healthcare environment, especially their leadership skills.

The purpose of this course is to provide nurses with a solid foundation for effective nursing leadership and management. Nurses practicing in any healthcare setting will gain new knowledge or enhance previously acquired knowledge regarding leadership and management concepts such as leadership theory and principles, healthcare policy, legal issues and ethics, change and decision making, organizational structure and effective care delivery, healthcare economics, staff recruitment and retention, and leadership tools and resources.
