Many individuals who are in a hospital or at home following a prolonged illness or injury that impacts mobility become frustrated when they cannot move around as they desire. Mobility and ambulation are important to overall health and recovery from illness and injury. Often, this recovery includes the support of care providers skilled in lifting, moving, and supporting an individual with limited mobility. Some patients also need help with their basic needs because they not longer possess enough movement control to complete hygiene or other daily tasks without assistance. This course discusses how care providers can offer support to individuals with mobility and ambulation issues, whether that includes minimal support or more extensive lifting and transferring needs.

Many clients are accustomed to an active lifestyle, so they become frustrated when they cannot move around or engage in occupations in ways they did before an illness or injury, or like they did when they were younger. Occupational therapists understand this frustration, so they help clients, caregivers, and family members understand and apply safe ambulation techniques. Some clients need help with their basic needs because they don’t have the ability to take care of it themselves; helping them safely transfer from one place to another is equally as important as ambulation. This course discusses how occupational therapists can better understand these concerns, so they can, in turn, educate clients and caregivers on adult ambulation and mobility.

Muchos pacientes, clientes o residentes están acostumbrados a un estilo de vida activo. Pueden sentirse frustrados cuando no pueden moverse como lo hacían antes de una enfermedad, lesión o límites del envejecimiento. Los proveedores de atención deben comprender esta frustración y aprender a ayudar a los pacientes, clientes y residentes con su desplazamiento. Algunos pacientes también necesitan ayuda con sus necesidades básicas porque no tienen la capacidad de cuidarse a ellos mismos. El proveedor de atención médica necesita saber cómo mover a un paciente de un lugar a otro. Este curso trata sobre cómo los proveedores de atención médica transfieren a los adultos de manera segura y proporciona asistencia para la circulación.

The AHA's Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens course teaches employees how to protect themselves and others from being exposed to blood or blood-containing materials. This course is designed to meet OSHA requirements for bloodborne pathogens training when paired with site-specific instruction. Upon completion of the online course, students receive a course completion certificate that can be presented to their employer. There are no skills test or skills demonstration at the end of this course; however, the AHA provides an optional written exam if the employer requires an exam for completion. Primary Audience: The Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens Course was designed specifically for workers with a reasonable chance of coming into contact with bloodborne pathogens such as correctional officers, childcare workers, security guards, maintenance workers, school personnel, hotel housekeepers, health and fitness club staff, and tattoo artists.

Anxiety disorders impact more than twenty-five million people in the U.S., and these disorders are the most common mental health diagnoses given to children and adolescents. Anxiety disorders are often identified by common symptoms that may include the overwhelming feeling of panic and fear, obsessive thoughts, and recurring nightmares. In both children and adolescents, anxiety disorders often interfere with academic functioning in school and socializing with peers. In fact, adolescents with anxiety often drop out of school, negatively impacting their ability to earn a living wage as adults. Untreated anxiety during adolescence also increases the risk of substance abuse, a risk that continues into adulthood. Effective treatment for anxiety includes a combination of mental health therapy and pharmacological therapy. Treating symptoms of anxiety in adolescence helps to create positive outcomes in adulthood. This course provides an overview of anxiety in children and adolescents and includes an overview of the various types of anxiety disorders regularly seen in youth. This course will also discuss evidence based treatment approaches recognized for effectively treating the symptoms of anxiety in children and adolescents.

Few people think deeply about later life and the ways our culture and others have defined it and yet, most of us are likely to have preconceptions and sometimes false beliefs about aging and old age. Most people are preoccupied with their current lives and plans for the future: education, friends, relationships, careers, finances, and other markers of adulthood. Yet all cultures convey overt or covert messages and sometimes fears about old age. In this course, you will learn more about how society constructs old age as a distinct period of life. We will consider the importance of social class, race and ethnicity, and gender in defining people’s lives and opportunities. We will also focus on the myths and inaccuracies our culture perpetuates about aging, individuals in later life, and the process of growing old. Such beliefs not only pattern our own expectations about growing old but also have social, personal, and political consequences for older people themselves. We will also examine career opportunities in social gerontology. How gerontology developed as a field of study and the research methods used in social gerontology are also discussed.

Aging is shaped by demographic characteristics. As the population grows or shrinks and people move to different areas to live, the experience of aging in society changes. Americans aged 65 and older are currently more than 11 times the size of this group in 1900, and the proportion is increasing. This large section of society is more likely to live longer and healthier than previous generations, shaping how they will live as they age. This course presents key concepts used to describe population characteristics and how everyone’s life is patterned by demographic characteristics and changes.

Theories help us understand patterns of behaviors and aspects of social life and are shaped by history and culture. The field of gerontology seeks to understand social, behavioral, and psychological aspects of aging. Since individual aging is deeply intertwined with social change, each theory can best be understood in its relationship to the others. Not surprisingly, aging and old age have been studied from many different perspectives: that of individuals, groups, specific societies, distinct historical periods, comparative studies of societies, and so on. Some researchers seek to find similarities, and others look at change. This course will review the major theories of aging, differentiate between categories of theories, and include views on older adulthood.
