Drug dosages for children and the elderly often differ from those for the adult population. When you are administering drugs to children or the elderly, you need to know how to determine the correct dosage based on factors such as your patient's weight or body surface area. Accuracy in calculating dosages is vitally important, so it is essential that you know exactly how to make these calculations. (64 minutes) The Joint Commission and the Institute of Safe Medication Practices have identified many types medication orders that are prone to misinterpretation and error and are now listed on a 'prohibited abbreviations' list. These may change over time, so please access this link to view the most current list of these 'prohibited' and 'do not use' abbreviations. http://www.jointcommission.org/

This course focuses on trauma in the pediatric, pregnant, and elderly populations. Pediatric trauma is one of the major threats to the health and well-being of children in the United States. Traumatic injuries are the number one source of death and disability in the pediatric population. The pregnant trauma patient poses a unique responsibility for the emergency department nurse because there are two patients for which care must be rendered. The major focus of treatment in the pregnant trauma patient is on the mother; this ensures the best possible outcome for both the injured mother and the fetus. This course also explores the effects of aging and special considerations for the elderly trauma patient. (64 minutes)

Home healthcare and hospice workers are at increased risk for injury. Approximately 20.5 per 10,000 workers experience an injury from lifting each year. In a single shift, a nurse is likely to lift a total of thousands of pounds. This puts nursing personnel at unusually high risk for back injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). A musculoskeletal disorder is an injury of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage, joints, nerves, or blood vessels in the extremities or back that is caused or aggravated by work tasks such as lifting, pushing, and pulling. This activity will discuss the risks of manual patient handling, how to reduce these risks, the importance of patient assessment before a lift or transfer, and specific devices and techniques for patient lifts and transfers.
