Patient care often goes beyond general medical support. When a patient becomes emotionally upset, displaying aggressive physical behavior, it is not only disruptive but can be harmful to healthcare workers, family members, and other patients and interfere with necessary medical care. Aggressive physical behavior occurs in 30% to 50% of those people who suffer from dementia, and aggressive behaviors might include punching, kicking, biting, grabbing, pushing, throwing objects, or spitting. Healthcare providers working in retirement homes, eldercare facilities, and home care agencies often have to care for patients that exhibit aggressive behaviors. Understanding the causes behind these behaviors, how to identify triggers that cause the behaviors, and knowing how to interact effectively with an aggressive patient will increase safety for all around and improve overall care.

In 2016, the World Health Organization declared Zika virus outbreak in Latin America and other areas a public health emergency of international concern, because Zika virus can cause birth defects and neurological problems. Since then, Zika virus has been a topic of concern in the news media. Although a sensational topic, the reality is that Zika is a mosquito-borne virus that causes no illness in some people, and mild to moderate illness in others, lasting about a week; the vast majority of those infected with Zika virus do not become seriously ill. However, Zika virus has been shown to cause serious birth defects in children born to infected mothers. It also has been linked to the neurological disorder Guillain-Barré Syndrome in some people. This course discusses the discovery, transmission, symptoms, diagnoses, treatment, risks, and prevention of Zika virus.
