The nonprofit Medical Education Institute (MEI) has added two new continuing education courses for nurses to its continuing education website. Each hour-long course is available for $10 for 1 credit.
Healthcare Professionalism, Ethics, and Empathy demonstrates how important it is to maintain appropriate professional behavior when working with patients. The course covers healthcare technical and ethical standards, patient/provider relationships and boundaries, the dialysis patient’s point-of-view to develop interpersonal communication skills, and much more.
Include Dialysis Patients in your Facility Culture of Safety focuses on effective systems and teamwork–that includes patients–to accomplish the mutual goal of safe, high-quality patient care. When something goes wrong, the focus is on what, rather than who, is the problem, with the intent to bring process failures and system issues to light and solve them in a non-biased, non-threatening way.
