Antibiotic resistance refers to the ability of bacteria to avoid the effects of an antibiotic. The development of resistance is a natural outcome of antibiotic use. While we cannot prevent antibiotic resistance, we can slow its spread. We can do this by using antibiotics wisely. This course has been designed to review strategies for preserving the effectiveness of antibiotics used in patient care.

Transfusions of blood and blood products can save the lives of patients who need them. For most patients who need blood or blood products after injury or because of disease, the potential benefits far outweigh risks. When healthcare staff are educated and trained, risks are mitigated. Well-trained staff: • Follow best practices to minimize risks and help prevent transfusion problems • Recognize problems when they do occur • Respond to problems quickly and effectively This course focuses on hands-on clinical issues, such as: • How to give blood products safely • How to recognize and respond to transfusion problems

Although central line-associated bloodstream infections have decreased significantly over the past several years, they remain a serious threat to the well-being of patients who have them, increasing hospital stays and mortality. They consume a tremendous amount of resources and remain a huge financial burden to payers. About 30,000 central line infections still occur each year in the United States. This course has been designed to help you understand best practices in preventing CLABSI, so that you can contribute to improved patient outcomes.

Many Americans take medication every day to prevent and treat many health-related conditions. In fact, a 2006 survey (the most recent data available) revealed that 82% of Americans use at least one medication or dietary supplement. In the 65- and-older group, 57-59% reported taking 5 or more medications and 17-19% reported taking over 10 medications! These alarming figures, along with the growing population and expanding volume of drug choices, compound the risk for adverse drug events (ADEs). ADE prevention is therefore a national priority. In this course, we will examine ADEs and drug hazards.

Opioids are the most commonly prescribed medication. In fact, the number of opioid prescriptions has quadrupled over the past 20 years. Pain reported by Americans, however, has not changed. When opioids are misused, the social and emotional impact on individuals, their caregivers, and families is tremendous. In addition to the human toll that opioid misuse takes, healthcare costs skyrocket. Healthcare workers are called to action to turn this epidemic around. This course will help you do your part in this national effort.
