  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 The transition of health care for adolescents with solid organ transplants as they move into adult-centered services has become more significant over recent years as survival has improved. Since the transfer process from pediatric to adult care can be a challenging phase for transplant recipients, their families, and providers, transition planning should begin at an early age and be an integral component of their ongoing care. This activity will address the potential challenges and psychosocial factors associated with transitioning from pediatric to adult transplant care.
Minimally Invasive Surgery for Colectomy
  • Disease Management
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
$0.00 During this webcast, learners will compare the differences between traditional “open” surgery and minimally invasive colectomies (MICs). Additionally, they will review the risk of complications, recovery time and financial outcomes and evaluate the benefits of reducing the length of stay in the hospital. They will also become familiar with the type of patient who is eligible for minimally invasive surgical interventions.Learning objectives At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
Nonpharmaceutical Management of Behavioral Issues in Older Adults

  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
  • NAB
$0.00 With the aging of the U.S. population, there is a need for increased behavioral health services. Dementia is the leading cause of dependence and disability in the elderly population worldwide, and, as the average life expectancy increases, the prevalence of dementia is expected to increase exponentially.
The Role of the Health Care Team in Solving the Opioid Epidemic

$0.00 The misuse of and addiction to opioids is a serious national crisis affecting public health as well as social and economic welfare. This crisis has devastating consequences and the number of opioid overdoses per year has quadrupled since 1999.
Minimally Invasive Lung Surgery
  • Disease Management
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
$0.00 During this webcast, learners will evaluate the differences between open and minimally invasive lung lobectomy including effectiveness, complications, oncologic efficacy, quality and financial outcomes as well as the latest techniques for video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy. Additionally, they will become familiar with the types of patients who are eligible for minimally invasive surgical interventions and will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of these interventions across the spectrum of stages of lung cancer.
Establishing Effective Communication with Patients with Intellectual Disabilities: R.A.F.T. Part 2
  • Intellectual and developmental disabilities

  • APA
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 PWID often experience restricted independence due to limited communicative abilities, which can be challenging for HCPs and caregivers. HCPs need to be aware of each individual’s perspective and adapt their communicative behaviors to accommodate the unique needs of PWID. Decreasing barriers to effective patient-centered communication with PWID will increase the delivery of meaningful health care, build rapport and lead to the development of trusted relationships, which should increase perceived quality of care.
Establishing Effective Communication with Patients with Intellectual Disabilities: R.A.F.T. Part 1
  • Intellectual and developmental disabilities
  • AAPC
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • APA
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 HCPs often lack experience and/or training in communicating with PWID. To help facilitate effective patient-centered communication, HCPs require clear guidelines and competency development on this vulnerable patient population. The R.A.F.T. (Respect, Accommodation, Follow-Up, Time) training was developed to provide an evidence-based model for effective communication interactions between HCPs, PWID and caregivers. R.A.F.T. was designed for HCPs across the continuum of care, from those who schedule appointments and welcome patients at reception to those involved in ongoing care.
Shared Decision Making: The Role of the Health Care Team in Empowering Health Care Consumers
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • APA
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 This webcast will identify the tools consumers need to assist them in making health care decisions that reflect their priorities and preferences. Factors that impede consumers from participating in health care decision making along with how these decisions improve health care delivery will be discussed, as well as ways in which the health care team can encourage and empower consumers to be motivated and engaged in improving their health care.Learning objectives At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
Being an Empowered Advocate: The Role of the Clinician in Changing Policy
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA

  • APA
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Health advocacy is essential for system reforms and positive change. Advocacy encompasses a wide range of activities that influence decision makers and ultimately shape policies from the local/state level to the federal level. As the health care system continues to evolve, HCPs must incorporate advocacy into their roles to ensure increased access, reduced costs and higher quality of care. Being an advocate can have far-reaching effects on the public’s health by providing policymakers with the data and patient/consumer examples they need to make informed decisions.
