Price: $21.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # N1817  

Release Date: October 10, 2017

Expiration Date: October 31, 2020

This course will provide nurses with information to assist in their understanding of bipolar and related disorders, risks and prevention measures, identification, assessment, and management across the course of the illness. Nurses with a focus on prevention and holistic care will gain knowledge and tools to better identify the complex factors that affect these clients, including assessment of the signs and symptoms of bipolar disorder, understanding of associated risks and appropriate treatments, strategies for crisis management and recovery, and relapse-prevention and symptom-management strategies for long-term stabilization. Nurses are tasked with collaborating with other health professionals and making appropriate referrals in order to provide a continuum of care that helps patients gain stability; as such, resources and appropriate supports are presented. Nurses work with individual clients and the support systems affected by the symptoms of these disorders. Recognition of necessary and appropriate supports for individuals and families is essential to promoting recovery. Written for nurses, this basic-level course presents essential information about bipolar and related disorders, including epidemiology, signs and symptoms, causal and associated risk factors, assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning and implementation, symptom management, relapse prevention, and outcomes evaluation.

Recognizing Mental Health Issues Co-Occurring With Medical Conditions

Price: $32.95 Hours:10 Contact Hours
Item # N1885  

Release Date: December 11, 2017

Expiration Date: November 30, 2020

Patients with a medical condition may display psychiatric symptoms or responses, and sometimes longer lasting mental health problems. All nurses practicing in a general healthcare setting must be prepared to assist patients with maintaining optimal mental health. This course is focused on those psychiatric and mental health issues related to a chronic medical condition that nurses working in a general or non-psychiatric nursing specialty area may encounter.

The course specifically details common mental health issues observed in patients with sleep-wake disorders, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, and diabetes, and nursing care and interventions for patients with these conditions to help prevent chronic mental illness. The course also addresses mental health issues seen among patients who have suffered a stroke, lost a body part, or have experienced sensory loss.

This course is designed to enhance the skills required by those nurses without specific mental health training caring for patients with psychiatric and mental health issues in general practice settings. By taking this course, psychiatric nurses may also receive new insight into the general medical patient with a related mental health issue or problem.

 

This course is an extract of, and should not be taken in conjunction with, N1758 - Caring for Patients With Mental Health Issues: Strategies for All Nurses, 2nd Edition.

Item # N1826  

Release Date: November 15, 2017

With the high prevalence of trauma exposure within the United States, nurses are providing care to many trauma-exposed patients who are at risk of developing PTSD, and nurses may not have the comfort level or skills needed to assess and intervene appropriately. It is essential for registered nurses, advanced practice registered nurses, and certified nurse specialists to routinely assess for the presence of traumatic experiences, as well as possible PTSD symptoms, in all encounters with patients and families so that interventions and referrals to treatment can be provided.

This course provides an overview of PTSD for nurses working in a variety of roles and settings. This course addresses the history, incidence, etiology, and risk factors for PTSD, identifies diagnostic criteria across all age groups. Screening and assessment for PTSD are discussed as well as the disorder’s major clinical signs and symptoms. Special considerations for assessing and diagnosing PTSD for specific populations are presented and therapeutic approaches for treating and managing PTSD are discussed.

Additionally, the significance of workplace-related issues and ADHD are discussed.
