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.

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.
