A Women's Genetic Risk for Developing Cancer

Price: $21.95 
Item # N1938  

Release Date: October 16, 2017

Expiration Date: August 31, 2020

Some families have multiple individuals with a history of malignancy, suggesting a hereditary risk beyond what would be expected by chance. Advances in genetic science and testing have made it possible to identify families at risk for developing malignancies because of mutated, absent, or defective genes.

When genetic testing identifies a pathogenic mutation in a family, there is a possibility that family members who do not have a diagnosis of cancer can have genetic testing to clarify whether they have a high risk for developing malignancy. For those family members with a mutation, tailored recommendations can decrease the morbidity and mortality associated with certain cancers in these families. This course provides nurses with key information on how family history can contribute to cancer risk for some cancer diagnoses in women.

 

This course is an extract of, and should not be taken in conjunction with, N1755 - Cancer in Women, 3rd Edition.

Acute Cardiovascular Conditions

Price: $32.95  
Item # N1754  

Release Date: January 19, 2017

Expiration Date: January 31, 2020

Because of the prevalence of cardiovascular disease, nurses must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to aid in its reduction. Recognizing patients at risk for acute cardiovascular conditions and taking the initiative to educate patients of the behavioral and non-behavioral cardiovascular risk factors for these conditions can enhance prevention and management strategies aimed to control the prevalence of the disease. In addition to using nursing education as a primary prevention strategy, nurses must also be aware of initial assessment and management strategies for patients with cardiovascular disease in the acute phase.

This course provides information to support nurses working across all healthcare settings who care for patients with acute cardiovascular disease. This course can serve as a reference for nurses working in cardiovascular areas or provide those desiring to work in cardiovascular areas with an introduction to comprehensive acute cardiovascular care. Nursing application points in the clinical setting are highlighted throughout the course to assist learners in identifying key issues in the care of patients with acute cardiovascular disease.

ADHD in Adults

Price: $21.95 
Item # N1919  

Release Date: April 5, 2018

Expiration Date: March 31, 2021

ADHD is no longer seen as a childhood disorder, and it is likely that many adults affected by the ADHD are undiagnosed. It is for this reason that this course has been developed: to educate healthcare professionals and bring clarity and a deeper understanding to the research, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD in adults. Additionally, the significance of workplace-related issues and ADHD are discussed.

Alternative Therapies for Asthma

Price: $16.95 
Item # N1863  

Release Date: January 2, 2018

Expiration Date: January 31, 2021

A complementary, or alternative, therapy is any healing practice that is not considered part of conventional, mainstream medicine. Complementary therapies may be based on historical or cultural traditions, rather than on scientific evidence (National Asthma Council Australia, 2012). It is important to understand that there is a distinction between complementary and alternative practices. If a nonmainstream practice is used in conjunction with conventional medicine, it is considered complementary. If a nonmainstream practice is used in place of conventional medicine, it is considered alternative. Most people who use nonmainstream approaches combine them with conventional treatments (National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health [NCCIH], 2016).

Although not a mainstay of therapy, the use of alternative therapies by individuals with asthma warrants discussion because of its increasing popularity. The use of alternative therapies is so prevalent that healthcare professionals can expect to provide care to a large number of individuals who use these therapies. Alternative therapies may influence the delivery of medical care, so it is important to ask about a history of alternative therapy use in the assessment. Healthcare professionals have a responsibility to provide individuals who use other therapies with accurate information about the safety and potential adverse interactions with traditional medical care. It is imperative that the person with asthma understand the risks and benefits of alternative treatments, which ones have evidence-based effectiveness, and the need to maintain medical management and follow-up to ensure good asthma outcomes. This course focuses specifically on the use of alternative therapies in asthma treatment.

Ambulatory Surgery: Anesthetic Management for Nurses

Price: $32.95  
Item # N1739  

Release Date: November 14, 2016

Expiration Date: November 30, 2019

This course is an extract of, and should not be taken in conjunction with N1719 Ambulatory Surgical Care, 3rd Edition or N1738 Ambulatory Surgery Nursing Essentials.

Hospital outpatient departments, free-standing ambulatory surgery centers, and office-based surgery suites have grown exponentially in volume since the 1970s. The reasons for growth are multifactorial and include technological advances in surgery, anesthesia, and medication management; patient and provider demand and acceptance; quality and safety initiatives; and cost-containment efforts. The need for educated, knowledgeable, and experienced nurses will only increase as surgery numbers grow in the outpatient setting and anesthetic management and technology-enhanced surgery expand. 

Ambulatory surgery nurses work as a team with the patient’s anesthesia care provider, surgeon, surgical technician, other nurses, and the patient to provide safe, efficient care while minimizing pain and anxiety for the patient. The provision of anesthesia during ambulatory surgery offers an evidence-based approach to perioperative care while maximizing convenience and safety. Nurses caring for patients under anesthesia use critical thinking skills to assess each patient and coordinate customized care that results in optimal outcomes. Although complications related to anesthesia occur infrequently in the ambulatory surgery setting, nurses must be able to recognize and manage emergencies should they occur. 

The purpose of this course is to provide the learner with the information needed to effectively manage the nursing care of the patient undergoing anesthesia for ambulatory surgery. This course provides key concepts and knowledge to nurses who are new to the ambulatory surgery environment or who are considering entering the ambulatory surgery nursing specialty. The course also provides up-to-date, evidence-based information on anesthesia management and care relevant to the skills and practice level of experienced nurses already working in the outpatient surgery setting.

Ambulatory Surgery: Nursing Essentials

Price: $44.95  
Item # N1738  

Release Date: November 17, 2016

Expiration Date: November 30, 2019

Note: This course is an extract of, and should not be taken in conjunction with N1719 Ambulatory Surgical Care, 3rd Edition or N1739 Ambulatory Surgery: Anesthetic Management for Nurses.

Ambulatory surgery offers an evidence-based approach to perioperative care while maximizing convenience and safety. The ambulatory surgery nurse is a valuable member of the patient care team, managing preadmission findings, preoperative assessments, intraoperative patient care, and postoperative education needs. The nurse works as an advocate for the patient by reviewing relevant findings and creating a customized plan of care for each patient.

Due to the evolution of care and the varied procedures performed in the ambulatory setting, even the most experienced nurse needs to keep pace with the many changes in healthcare delivery based on updated evidence-based guidelines and criteria. Federal and state regulations prompt ambulatory surgery teams to consistently focus on quality assurance, performance improvement, and risk management in an effort to ensure reliable patient safety. As the demand for qualified professional nurses increases with the expansion of ambulatory surgical care services across the country, nurses must constantly adapt and integrate new knowledge into practice.

The purpose of this course is to share essential, evidence-based information about the care that professional nurses provide to patients in the ambulatory surgery environment. Although the same-day, short-stay timeframe is a clear benefit to patients undergoing surgery in the ambulatory setting, it places increased challenges on care providers, especially nurses. Nurses working in this environment must have up-to-date key knowledge and possess astute screening and assessment skills, knowledge of safety and regulatory requirements, emergency response skills, and the ability and compassion to educate patients and families to facilitate a safe and successful discharge from the unit.

Ambulatory Surgical Care, 3rd Edition

Price: $64.95  
Item # N1719  

Release Date: October 17, 2016

Expiration Date: October 31, 2019

Ambulatory surgery staff members work as a team with the patient’s physician and the patient to provide safe, efficient, and streamlined care. Ambulatory surgery offers an evidence-based approach to perioperative care while maximizing convenience and safety. Although emergencies rarely occur in the ambulatory environment, preparation for these events is continuous. Federal and state regulations prompt ambulatory surgery teams to consistently focus on quality assurance, performance improvement, and risk management in an effort to ensure reliable patient safety.

The intent of this course is to provide the learner with information focused on the unique specialty of ambulatory surgical care. Ambulatory surgery is an exciting area of practice that offers clinicians variety and growth opportunities. Although this course will assist nurses who are new to ambulatory surgical care or considering entering ambulatory surgical care, it will also provide up-to-date information relevant to the skills and practices of nurses already working in the ambulatory setting.

Anticoagulant, Antiplatelet, and Thrombolytic Therapies: Implications for Advanced Practice Nursing

Price: $32.95  
Item # N1752  

Release Date: December 27, 2016

Expiration Date: December 31, 2019

 

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the United States. Despite a decline in the death rate in 2013, nearly 1 in 3 deaths were attributed to CVD. Anticoagulant, antiplatelet, and thrombolytic medications are commonly utilized in the prevention and management of many common medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease (stable and unstable angina), ST-elevation myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary interventions that include stent placement, cardiac dysrhythmias (atrial fibrillation), acute arterial occlusion, peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and ischemic stroke.  

Evidence-based nursing practice requires that nurses have the necessary knowledge base to assure competent and safe nursing care. The Joint Commission (2012) addresses the issue of patient safety within the context of anticoagulation therapy in National Patient Safety Goal 03.05.01, which advises healthcare providers to “reduce the likelihood of patient harm associated with the use of anticoagulant therapy.”

This course provides information on oral anticoagulants, with an emphasis on the novel oral anticoagulants, parenteral anticoagulants, antiplatelets, and thrombolytics. Their indications for treatment of cardiovascular disorders including atrial fibrillation, venous thromboembolism, acute coronary syndrome, heparin induced thrombocytopenia, acute ischemic stroke, acute myocardial infarctions and acute pulmonary embolism is review. In addition, monitoring guidelines and patient counseling is discussed.  The need for healthcare providers to understand the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacotherapeutic considerations is imperative to achieve optimal patient outcomes.

 

This course should not be taken in conjunction with N1712 - Parenteral Anticoagulants: Implications for Patient Management, N1718 - Oral Anticoagulant Therapy: Implications for Patient Management, N1743 - Antiplatelet Therapy: Implications for Advanced Practice Nursing, or N1749 - Thrombolytic Therapy: Implications for Advanced Practice Nursing.

Antidepressants, 2nd Edition

Price: $21.95  
Item # N1692  

Release Date: January 29, 2016

Expiration Date: January 31, 2019

The purpose of this course is to provide current, evidence-based information for registered nurses (RNs), advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), and registered pharmacists (RPhs) on the mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics parameters, potential adverse events, adverse event management strategies, and special considerations affecting medication use and selection for medications used to treat depressive disorders. Although many medications used to treat depression have been around for several decades, new medications are constantly under development and it is important that healthcare professionals stay abreast of these new developments. In addition, the way that many of these medications with antidepressant properties are used in clinical practice continues to change. Although only some RNs, APRNs, and RPhs may specialize in mental health, all will encounter patients with mental health conditions such as major depressive disorder. This course is designed for RNs, APRNs, and RPhs practicing in all settings who may encounter patients taking antidepressants or be involved in initiating treatment with antidepressants.

Anxiolytics and Traditional Mood Stabilizers

Price: $26.95  
Item # N1713  

Release Date: July 27, 2016

Expiration Date: July 31, 2019

The care of patients with mental health diagnoses is by no means limited to psychiatric facilities or practices. Due to the prevalence of mental illness in the U.S. population, patients taking psychiatric medications are treated in virtually all healthcare settings. Anxiety disorders, as a group, represent the most common form of psychiatric illness, and in turn, anti-anxiety medications are prescribed and dispensed with great frequency. Therefore, it is imperative that nurse practitioners maintain current knowledge of these common psychiatric illnesses and treatments.

This course is designed for nurse practitioners in all settings. The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the psychiatric pharmacotherapy of anxiety disorders and bipolar disorder. This course provides the learner with essential information on anxiolytic and mood stabilizer medications. Clinical pharmacology and pharmacokinetics are briefly discussed in order to explain the actions of the drugs, their effects on symptoms, their most common side effects, and their most serious adverse reactions. Interactions with other medications and potential for abuse of some drugs are also presented. Learners should be able to apply the material from this course to patient management and teaching scenarios.

Approaches to Geriatric Pharmacology

Price: $21.95  
Item # N1711  

Release Date: June 23, 2016

Expiration Date: June 30, 2019

With an aging population come several alarming statistics regarding medication use in older adults. The leading causes of adverse drug events in the older adult population are inappropriate prescribing, inappropriate dosing, and inferior monitoring. Inappropriate monitoring of medication use is accountable for 50% of all drug-related emergency department visits resulting in hospitalization. The vulnerability of older adults is a challenge to the healthcare system, and with respect to medication use, this represents a strong advanced practice registered nurse intervention opportunity.

Any medication problem experienced by an older adult patient requires a multifactorial assessment. The topics covered in this course include core geriatric assessment principles that all disciplines caring for older adults are required to understand, geriatric pharmacological principles, and methods to assess appropriateness of medication use recommendations in the older adult. Individualization of care, a key concept in providing appropriate medication use in older adults, requires skills beyond the conventional assessment of adherence and efficacy. Core competencies include vigilant attention to the older adult’s risk of drug toxicity, appropriate application of adult clinical guidelines to older adults, risk versus benefit assessments, goals of therapy appropriate for older adults in alignment with patient preferences, and optimization of functional status.

This course is for the advanced practice registered nurse who manages the treatment and care of the older adult in all healthcare settings. It provides theoretical framework to apply principles to overall medication management as well as to specialized therapeutic categories of medication use, such as cardiovascular, endocrinological, pulmonary, and psychotropic.

 

Arterial and Venous Insufficiency Ulcers

Price: $21.95 
Item # N1805  

Release Date: April 24, 2017

Expiration Date: January 31, 2020

 

There are two primary types of vascular ulcers: those related to the arterial system, or arterial insufficiency (AI), and those related to the venous system, or venous insufficiency. The two types involve different pathological processes that can lead to chronic wounds.

Skin ulcerations can occur spontaneously; however, most result from a minor traumatic event leading to a chronic wound with full-thickness tissue damage. AI, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and arterial disease are the terms used to represent the disease process causing the chronic wounds or ulcers of lower extremity arterial ulcers.

Chronic venous insufficiency encompasses a variety of anomalies in the venous vascular system of the lower leg. These deviations from normal can range from asymptomatic telangiectasis (spider veins) and varicose veins to more complex conditions involving venous insufficiency ulceration and, in some cases, mixed arterial and venous disease.

The nurse’s understanding and use of  accurate terminology is an important part of describing and documenting lower extremity ulcers. Using correct terminology provides important information when formulating an appropriate plan of care, and for billing and coding purposes to ensure reimbursement for care  and services is provided.  

Quality of life is negatively affected for individuals suffering from long-term CVI and ulceration, causing loss of workdays, pain, mobility issues, and body image concerns. Nurses are able to make a positive impact for this patient population through evidence-based care. This course will provide the nurse with information related to the underlying pathophysiology, nursing assessment and care, surgical interventions including debridement, and key education points in caring for the person with arterial, venous, and mixed etiology ulcers.
