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.

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.

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.

Human Trafficking: Identification, Intervention, and Prevention

Price: $26.95 
Item # N1691  

Release Date: March 2, 2016

Expiration Date: March 31, 2019

 

Human trafficking is a global public health and human rights issue involving the exploitation of 18.7 million people and yielding profits of $150 billion (USD) per year worldwide. In 2014, within the United States, 5,042 cases of human trafficking were reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center. Although organizations from all sectors have emerged to fight against and prevent human trafficking, healthcare professionals are in a unique position to prevent, identify, and care for trafficked persons. In fact, one study reported that 88% of trafficked persons interacted with a healthcare professional during their time being trafficked. Despite a high frequency of contact with trafficked individuals, there is a documented lack of education available to healthcare providers on the signs of human trafficking as well as a lack of protocols on how to care for trafficked individuals.

This course is an introduction into the complex crime of human trafficking, with a focus on sex and labor trafficking and the common symptoms and conditions that occur in trafficked persons. The course provides insights into the facts surrounding human trafficking and relevant health risks for the trafficked person. The course prepares healthcare professionals to become advocates for trafficked persons. Care of these individuals is as unique as the trafficked persons themselves, but research on the needs and common patterns of symptoms makes it possible to outline recommendations for prevention of human trafficking and identification and care of this vulnerable population. Healthcare providers who complete this course will be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of trafficked persons and identify the interventions needed to care for these individuals. Additionally, this course lists national resources that provide vital services to trafficked persons and it makes recommendations for patient and staff safety when addressing these potentially volatile scenarios.

 

This course should not be taken in conjunction with N1831 - Human Trafficking: 2-Hour Overview for Nurses.
