Women who have had an uncomplicated pregnancy, labor, and delivery are usually discharged from the hospital within 24 to 48 hours after delivery. The postpartum period and its accompanying physiologic changes, however, continue for several weeks after delivery. Anticipatory guidance refers to patient education for new mothers. A new mother needs to learn what normal changes she should expect, how to adapt to the changes she experiences, how to care for herself, and how to recognize potential variations from the norm that should be reported to her healthcare provider. This course will cover anticipatory guidance for breast engorgement, changes in the abdomen and lochia, and care of the perineum as well as variations from the norm that must be reported to the healthcare provider.

The purpose of this course is to detail the major assessment factors for a prototypical patient with multisystem trauma injuries. The course describes the physiology, psychology, and appropriate interventions of the trauma response. You will learn the information required for obtaining a complete understanding of a trauma event. A healthcare professional should gather information about the event's precursors, the exact mechanisms that caused the injuries, and the consequences for the trauma patient.

The psychosocial aspects of care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are complex. Not only are family members trying to cope with a medical crisis, but they are also often experiencing feelings of guilt and grief. Having a critically ill infant in the NICU can easily overwhelm parents' normal coping channels. Many of the parents are adolescent or first-time parents and may be particularly vulnerable to the stresses of having a baby who requires intensive care. As an NICU nurse, you can help parents to cope with a difficult situation and, ideally, to make a healthy transition to parenthood. (78 minutes)
