Improving the quality of healthcare is a national initiative and is mandated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. According to the Medicare Conditions of Participation (COPs), a healthcare organization’s governing body is responsible for ensuring that clear expectations for safety are established. It must, for example, implement an effective and ongoing Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) program. Such a program tracks and analyzes adverse events in order to determine preventive actions throughout the hospital. This course seeks to enhance your appreciation of this process and promote your active involvement. This can help to reduce adverse events, thereby improving patient care outcomes. This course will teach you how to deal with adverse events at your facility. You will learn: • What adverse events are and how to respond to them • What sentinel events and serious reportable events are, and how to respond to them • Strategies for preventing adverse events

Health literacy is a concept that was new to many members of the healthcare community and in turn caught the attention of researchers, policy-makers, and clinicians. It has become a nationwide healthcare initiative. This course is designed to acquaint you with the concepts of health literacy and low or limited health literacy, and how they impact quality, outcomes, and costs of healthcare. Furthermore, the course will offer strategies for helping to improve health literacy in high-risk populations.

Sedation and anesthesia are important risk factors for morbidity and mortality during operative or invasive procedures. In the past, sedation was reserved for use in the operating room by anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists. Lower levels of sedation can be administered safely in procedural settings where loss of consciousness is not required, but even lower levels of sedation have risks. Administering sedation safely is critical to: • Help prevent negative outcomes • Comply with regulations This course will cover: • How moderate sedation relates to other types of anesthesia services, and how this affects patient safety • Important information about the administration of moderate sedation and analgesia, including processes and procedures that occur before and after administration

Tuberculosis (TB) was once the leading cause of death in the United States, with up to 25% of all deaths attributable to the disease. Due to current efforts, the rate of TB cases and related deaths in the United States has steadily decreased to a record low. This decline is attributed to the work of local TB programs in detecting and treating persons with TB disease. Healthcare facilities and local health departments partner to ensure that people diagnosed with TB complete therapy, limiting the risk of further transmission. The next area of focus toward the goal of elimination of TB is detecting and treating latent tuberculosis bacterial infection (LTBI), especially among groups at high risk. Reactivation of LTBI is a principal driver of TB disease in the United States, accounting for over 80% of all TB cases. This course has been designed to help you understand TB and your role in helping to detect, treat, and prevent the spread of TB
