Every business and industry has to accomplish objectives with limited resources, especially in the field of healthcare. Healthcare facility administrators who have to achieve results using fewer resources will understand the important role that staff productivity, job satisfaction, and motivation play in getting work done. Teams are made up of several individuals who have different but complementary skills and who hold themselves mutually accountable for working towards a common purpose, reaching predetermined performance objectives, and improving interdependent work processes. Taking a team approach to management allows administrators to leverage the power of teamwork while keeping their workers happy and motivated. This course discusses the work team, the benefits teamwork brings to a facility, the disadvantages of using teams, and when it makes the most sense to allocate work to a team versus individuals.

Healthcare facility administrators who have to achieve results using fewer resources understand the important role that staff productivity, job satisfaction, and motivation play in getting work done. Teams are made up of individuals who have different but complementary skills. All team members hold themselves mutually accountable for working towards a common purpose, reaching predetermined performance objectives, and improving interdependent work processes. Taking a team approach to management lets administrators leverage the power of teamwork while keeping their workers happy and motivated. In order for administrators to make teams an effective part of their organization, they need to better understand some characteristics of how teams work. This course discusses the stages of team development, the impact that norms, cohesiveness, and size has on teams, and how to deal with team conflict.

For most working adults, days are filled with multiple tasks and deadlines. This is especially true in healthcare as you have to do all your work while also considering the needs of those in your care. Chances are you have more things you want to do than you have time to do them. You can’t “find more time”, but you can do a better job of deciding what to spend your time on. Goal setting lets you choose how you want to spend your time, and when you set and then meet a goal, you feel satisfied and accomplished. This course discusses how to better manage time by setting goals for both your personal and professional life.

Any time there is a transition of care, there is a risk of patients receiving fragmented care. Miscommunication can occur as responsibilities for care are transferred from one provider to another. This often results in adverse events, emergency department (ED) visits, and often rehospitalization. Preventing hospital readmissions is a national focus of healthcare reform because readmissions often reflect poor quality of care and result in increased costs for health insurers, the government, and patients. This course will help you: • Appreciate challenges in transitioning care • Improve your communication skills to ensure patient safety during transitions • Do your part to prevent adverse events and reduce hospital readmissions

Mobility is an important part of human activity, and from an early age people have a need to move from place to place.  For people who depend on mobility assistance through wheelchairs, seemingly mundane daily tasks like shopping for groceries can quickly become complicated. Many disabled individuals rely on transportation provided by public services, private companies, and healthcare institutions in order to run errands and get to scheduled appointments. This course discusses how bus drivers with these organizations can ensure they are transporting passengers using wheelchairs safely, effectively, and legally.

Nerve compression syndromes of the hand are present in about 5% of the U.S. population, with Carpal tunnel syndrome being the most prevalent. Compression syndromes of the median nerve are vulnerable to many factors, including inadequate anatomical space inside the carpal tunnel, changes in fluid balance, inflammatory or metabolic disorders, and environmental causes like vibration, repetition, and poor positioning. This course will help physical therapy professionals identify the etiology, presentation, and treatment options for Carpal tunnel and similar compression syndromes.

Children in foster care are more likely to experience adverse childhood experiences, which increases their risk of negative outcomes in childhood and into adulthood. Many of the adverse experiences are highly traumatic and ultimately result in foster care placement. Because trauma is known to result in increased stress, children unable to adapt to the stress will find it more challenging to recover from the traumatic experiences. Challenges of unaddressed trauma in childhood can range from behavioral outbursts to negative impacts in functioning at home and school. As adults, they may continue to experience the negative impact in their relationships and struggle with mental and physical illness. This course explores unaddressed trauma often seen in children in foster care settings and will look at the effects of this unaddressed trauma on children and adolescents. This course will also explore the best treatment approaches to address symptoms related to trauma in youth.

Cardiovascular Disease significantly impacts the health of many in the United States, being responsible for almost one-third of all deaths. It is a class of diseases that involves the heart and circulatory system, which includes coronary artery disease and stroke. The primary method for both preventing cardiovascular disease and for managing the disease after onset is to engage in physical activity on a regular basis. Physical and occupational therapy professionals can help their patients and clients manage cardiovascular disease through preventative management and care, especially through physical activity. This course discusses the types of cardiovascular disease, how they impact those who suffer from them, and how physical and occupational therapy professionals can help their patients and clients suffering from this disease.
