Administering Blood Transfusions

This course focuses on the care and administration of blood and blood products. It will review the indications for transfusions, the appropriate use of blood and blood products, and the care and monitoring of a patient receiving blood and/or blood products.

Bereavement Support for the Loss of a Child

No one is ever prepared for the death of a child whether that is before they are born, just after they are born, in childhood or as a teenager or even as an adult. Whether it's through natural cause, medical reasons, or inflicted harm, understnding and supporting parents and family members who are anticipating or who have experienced a child loss goes beyond our medical training. This course will provide tools that will assist you in offering emotional support to those who have suffered the loss of a baby or child. We will shed light on the intricacies of child death, its unique challenges and grief experienced through loss by parents and families.

This course is part of the Wholistic Care Series provided by echelon.

Care for the Hispanic Patient: A Cross-Cultural Approach

The demographic trends are clear - the medical professions in the U.S. will be managing increasing numbers of Hispanic patients, while minority patients experience poorer health status. (Barrow, 2010) Understanding the reasons for this will help healthcare providers improve health trends for Hispanic populations in the United States. Cultural competency is important for everyone touching Hispanic patients in some way. This program is dedicated to describing the most significant cultural traits of Latino peoples and providing practical advice for the English-speaking American seeking positive interaction with this segment of the population.

Communication Skills Training: How to Deliver “Bad News”

Having to give bad news to patients happens frequently in healthcare arenas and many times healthcare professionals have not received training and education on how to compassionately and competently deliver bad news. Research has demonstrated that educating and reeducating healthcare professionals how to deliver bad news using a tool decreases patient distress and improves healthcare professional confidence and empathetic response thereby creating a better encounter for everyone involved.

This course will focus on providing healthcare professional education on the available tools and frameworks available to deliver bad news and provide education on how to implement one of these tools when having to discuss difficult information with patients.

Compassion Fatigue

Compassion fatigue knows no boundaries and is prevalent to all caregivers who care for those with chronic illness, acute emergent illnesses like they see in ICU, ED, PICU, NICU, and step-down units and their families. It is the very act of caring, giving of ourselves, that makes us susceptible to the probability of experiencing compassion fatigue. These difficult scenarios include having to give bad news, experiencing the death of patients, having intense interactions with patients, and high level of job responsibility that lead to secondary traumatic stress and burnout. More often than not as they continually give of themselves in these difficult and traumatic situations in repetitive fashion, their compassion satisfaction begins to decline, questioning their meaning.

In this 60-minute course, we will uncover the phenomenon called “Compassion Fatigue” and how it relates to you. 

Cultural Bias in Cardiovascular Care

Disparities in cardiovascular healthcare exist; they are pervasive, entrenched in society, and documented by numerous studies. This course for healthcare professionals, offers a review of the research; highlights some specific aspects of the problem, including risk factors, diagnostic and treatment practices, and morbidity/mortality rates; and describes some of the national, community, and healthcare actions that can improve cardiovascular healthcare for all Americans.

Cultural Competency

The purpose of this course is to enrich the quality of healthcare professionals’ culturally sensitive healthcare delivery. Cultural and Linguistic Appropriate Standards are discussed, theories that assist in the delivery of cross-cultural care are reviewed, and several tools that can facilitate and enhance conducting a culturally sensitive assessment are introduced.  

Dosage Calculation Review

Dosage Calculation Review covers the calculation of oral, intramuscular, subcutaneous, and intravenous medications for both pediatric and adult populations. Mathematical skills will be reviewed and interactive practice problems will be included after each module to reinforce the math skills needed to correctly calculate dosages. This course is presented in a multimedia format that is entertaining and informative.

Dynamics of Grief In Adult Loss

In the healthcare setting, most adults we encounter are experiencing some type of loss, and in turn, grief.  Not at all surprising, many people receiving healthcare may be experiencing functional loss. Grief is a process and as a result is not a specific emotion. In this course, we will focus on increased awareness of the 6 types of losses an adult may face while creating a familiarity with the dynamics of the grief experience and offer ways to support those who are integrating their grief and loss experience.

This course is part of the Wholistic Care Series provided by echelon.

Grieving and Loss

All healthcare professionals experience patient loss and nurses are the frontline compassion staff who face this unavoidable fact of life all to often. As nurses our purpose is to find ways to help those who are struggling with a death to face it honestly and directly, make the necessary adjustments to come to grips with "the new normal", and go on in life despite the radically changed landscape. This course confronts the reality of death and discusses various aspects of how we cope with it in a wholistic and realistic way to minimize the emotional and psychological damage done by the loss. In addition, we will look at some differing aspects and situations that arise when death occurs.

This course is accredited for all nursing professionals in the clinical arena, hospice environment, faith community, and international Parish Nursing environment. This course is accredited for 1 CNE unit in IPRNC category Grieving and Loss or 1 Credit ANCC Domain 2 towards Specialty Nursing Certification.
