Evolving Concepts in Childhood Nutrition- Free CEUs for Nurses

Building Healthy Foundations: Emerging Data and Evolving Concepts in Early Childhood Nutrition– Despite our understanding that early childhood nutrition is the foundation for healthy development, there is a dearth of specific expert recommendations for optimal nutrition during the critical first 1000 days of life (ie, pregnancy/birth through age 24 months). This monograph examines emerging data and evolving concepts in nutrition for children under 2 years of age. Specific topics include: recent research into the role of the healthy microbiome and the role of probiotics in a wide range of pediatric diseases; the importance of key nutrients, especially iron, as children begin the transition to solid foods; and the latest evidence regarding nutritional interventions to prevent allergic diseases, including data on the early introduction of allergenic foods.
Identify the nutritional needs of infants and young children during the critical first 1000 days that form the foundation for lifelong health
Counsel parents effectively on how to ensure their child eats a wholesome diet including key micronutrients, especially iron, during the complementary feeding transition period to solid foods
Apply the latest research about the importance of maintenance of a healthy microbiome to prevent disease and promote healthy development

Free ASRT CEU for Rad Techs- Ultrasound Probe Disinfection: Practical Considerations

Practical Considerations of Ultrasound Probe Disinfection – Learn the practical considerations of Ultrasound probe disinfection – protection against highly resistant infections such as HPV.

Healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) are a major challenge for healthcare providers and reducing the risk of HAIs has never been more important. Current high level disinfection practices involve exposure to harmful chemicals, manual processes that slow workflow, and are ineffective in eliminating microorganisms on the probe — including the handle. One of the top 5 non-compliance findings by The Joint Commission is reducing the risk of infections associated with medical devices or equipment. It is now known that high-risk HPV (human papillomavirus) is strongly resistant to a number of disinfectants including aldehyde-based high level disinfectants. This webinar will provide detail regarding this new development and offer potential solutions to mitigate transmission risk in the ultrasound environment.
Determine the proper procedures for ultrasound probe disinfection.
Establish procedures that will ensure patient safety and meet accreditation requirements.

Free Pharmacology Hours for ANPs- Best Practice in Care for Menopausal Patients

Best Practice in Care for the Menopausal Patient: 14 Years after the Women’s Health Initiative– Initial and subsequent findings from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) resulted in confusion regarding the safety and efficacy of menopause hormone therapy (MHT). Additional studies and reanalysis of the WHI findings over the past 14 years have brought management of menopausal symptoms back to the forefront in women’s health. This interactive activity is designed to update primary care and women’s health providers on the most current evidence-based practices in managing menopausal symptoms and evaluating individualized benefits vs risks of patients based on personal and family history. A review of the WHI will be included as well as an examination of FDA and off-label MHT pharmacologic therapeutic options. Other topics included non pharmacologic symptom management choices and non-hormonal agents that are guideline-based for women who either don’t want to take hormonal agents or who cannot take MHT.
Identify key conclusions of the preliminary and subsequent findings of the WHI as reported by the Principal Investigators of the study.
Describe reporting components from the WHI conclusions that factored into misinterpretations into the analysis of risks and benefits associated with use of hormone therapy in postmenopausal women.
Discuss the short- and long-term consequences to menopausal women, especially in younger women who are likely to be more symptomatic, if clinicians do not explore the severity of menopausal transition in their aging female patients.
Discuss evidence-based hormone therapy guidelines issued from renowned health organizations for treatment and management of various symptoms and comorbidities associated with menopausal transition.
Apply risk benefits to the clinical case studies presented to determine best practice decisions in recommending pharmacological vs non-pharmacological therapeutic options for management of menopausal transition.

Treating Dry Eye- Free CEUs for Pharmacists and Pharmacy Techs

Feeling the Burn – The Pharmacist’s Role in Treating Dry Eye– Dry eye disease is a common ocular condition affecting millions of Americans. With this condition, there is most often an insufficient amount of tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are essential for ensuring the health of the front surface of the eye and maintaining clear vision. Dry eye can cause irritation and lead to complications of the ocular surface, thus appropriate diagnosis and treatment is essential. Topical treatment includes numerous over the counter drops as well as prescription medications. A majority of the patients have milder or episodic symptoms, which will respond to the over-the-counter artificial tear supplements. Since patients frequently self-treat, pharmacists should have an understanding of the symptoms and treatments for dry eye and be prepared to discuss treatment options with patients who do not adequately respond to artificial tears. This program not only gives the pharmacist a solid knowledge base to make appropriate treatment recommendations for patients presenting wi th the signs and symptoms of dry eye but also identifies the point when a timely referral to an eye care specialist is appropriate.
Review the basics of dry eye including symptoms and causes.
Describe the FDA approved over-the-counter and prescription medications available to treat dry eye disease to include mechanism of action and side effects.
Outline key considerations regarding appropriate over-the-counter or prescription treatment and/or for referring patients to an eye care provider when appropriate.

1.25 Free AANP CEUs for Nurse Practitioners- Clinical Documentation Tips for Asthma Management

Asthma Management and Tips for Clinical Documentation– Whether you know the step approach to asthma therapy like the back of your hand, or rely on pulling it up in an app when a patient presents with asthma, the goal of this presentation is to review asthma management guidelines in a simple, concrete way to ensure the appropriate classification of asthma severity. Clinicians tend to underestimate asthma severity which can lead to inappropriate therapy. National asthma guidelines recommend assessment and documentation of asthma severity at each office visit which directs clinicians to consider the long-term management of asthma, rather than just acute treatment of the disease. Does your documentation reflect all that was assessed, discussed, determined and agreed upon at the visit? The clinical documentation of asthma severity includes indicators of quality care such as receipt of an action plan, spacer device, peak flow meter, asthma education and influenza vaccination. The chart must reflect supportive documentation regarding the specific ICD-10 diagnosis (es) selected. This presentation also will provide tips to consider for improved chart documentation of asthma in your clinical practice setting.
Understand how to classify asthma severity and control.
Evaluate the stepwise approach in asthma management.
Review optimal pharmacotherapy options in the provision of quality asthma care.
Enhance clinical documentation skills for appropriate coding and reimbursement.

Proactive Monitoring of Transplant Patientes- Free CEUs for Social Workers

organ-donor-ribbonImproving Outcomes Through Proactive Monitoring of Transplant Patients– The current goal of transplant medicine and immunology is to develop strategies to extend the life and functionality of every allograft. While outcomes of renal and liver transplantation have improved, allograft loss remains a substantial problem associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and costs.1 Identifying the pathologic pathways responsible for allograft loss and developing targeted therapeutic interventions are currently some of the biggest challenges in transplant medicine. Education to clinicians about the various factors that can result in allograft loss and optimal treatment can improve the quality of life of transplant patients.
