This course attempts to address some misconceptions held by the clinical community about radiation and its potential medical consequences in order to minimize the potential for inappropriate treatment and suboptimal medical care for victims of a radiation or nuclear incident. This course is designed for clinicians with an interest in understanding radiation concepts, the medical effects of radiation on biological systems, radiation countermeasures and essential elements for dealing with radiological and nuclear emergencies in the health care environment. The course aligns with current practices and terminology established through the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), National Response Framework (NRF), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Joint Commission.

Improving the quality of healthcare is a national initiative and is mandated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. According to the Medicare Conditions of Participation (COPs), a healthcare organization’s governing body is responsible for ensuring that clear expectations for safety are established. It must, for example, implement an effective and ongoing Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) Program. Such a program tracks and analyzes adverse events in order to determine preventive actions throughout the hospital. This course seeks to enhance your appreciation of this process and promote your active involvement. This can help to reduce errors and adverse events, thereby improving patient care outcomes. This course will teach you how to deal with adverse events at your facility. You will learn: •What adverse events are, and how to respond to them •What sentinel events and serious reportable events are, and how to respond to them •Strategies for preventing adverse events

Excel 2007 provides powerful data analysis tools that enable you to explore large amounts of data and to make educated business decisions based on that data. With PivotTable reports you can interactively summarize data, making it easier to analyze and present the results. PivotChart reports provide a graphical view of PivotTable report data. Using Goal Seek and Solver enables you to retrieve required results from formulas by determining the data the formula requires. You can also use additional what-if analysis components, data tables and scenarios, to view how value changes in formulas affect the formula results and to forecast worksheet outcome models respectively. This course covers advanced data analysis features, such as PivotTable and PivotChart reports, Goal Seek, Solver, scenarios, data tables, and OLAP.
