Sepsis: SOFA, qSOFA and interprofessional intervention
Sepsis is a complex and multifactorial condition that can progress quickly. Updated recommendations for managing sepsis have emerged to help the healthcare team more effectively treat and care for septic patients.  This webinar discusses sepsis pathophysiology to patient presentation to healthcare team management approaches to help combat sepsis

This CE series is a comprehensive learning experience that provides an extensive review of the adult CCRN and PCCN board certification exam. The seven-week, 24-contact hour, self-paced program combines online education and webinars and provides you with a study choice that is aligned with the core elements of the exam.

Clearing up the confusion about delirium
Delirium is a medical condition manifested as a disturbance in consciousness and cognition that occurs for a short time. Delirium is a common complication of older hospitalized patients, adding to length of stay and increasing cost of care. As in many other healthcare situations, nurses are frontline observers who can recognize beginning signs of delirium and initiate care.
ICU alert: Worsening respiratory function can signal ARDS
Acute respiratory distress syndrome continues to pose challenges for critical care clinicians. Prompt recognition of the distinct signs and symptoms of acute lung injury or progressively worsening respiratory function, often a harbinger of ARDS, can set a targeted treatment plan in motion.
Alarm fatigue can endanger patients
Over time, hospital clinicians become used to hearing an extensive number of alarms and tend to become desensitized to them, which leads to a lack of or delay in response. This phenomenon is called “alarm fatigue.” This module provides nurses with information about the safety concerns associated with alarm fatigue and evidence-based strategies to reduce it.
Empathy 101 for nurses: Care for yourself while supporting others
Nurses are called to care. You apply evidence-based practice, clinical knowledge, and critical thinking with compassion and empathy. Join this webinar to learn the difference between empathy and sympathy, and how to recharge and take care of yourself so you can take care of your patients.
A ‘bundle’ of safety measures to fight CLABSl
Central line-associated bloodstream infections affect about 80,000 patients in ICUs each year and are associated with about 250,000 patients with bloodstream infections, including non-ICU cases each year.  The nurse’s understanding of CLABSI and evidence-based bundle practice can improve patient outcomes significantly.
Working with an interprofessional team
An interprofessional team is composed of members from various practices who interact, communicate continually, and share with team members information that’s contributed from their own disciplinary perspective. This CE activity helps to increase healthcare professionals’ knowledge about the skills required to work effectively in IP teams.
Fall prevention: The balance between mobility and safety
It’s essential that healthcare providers understand the importance of maintaining patient mobility while patients are in the hospital and implement fall prevention strategies to keep patients safe when ambulating. Thorough clinical assessments and improved patient and staff education can help to minimize the risk of patient falls and improve patient safety.
Rhythm recognition: Getting to the heart of the matter
ECG rhythm recognition and analysis continues to be a major nursing responsibility in the acute care setting. This 5.8 contact hour course provides nurses with an understanding of basic cardiac physiology and practice, successful ECG interpretation is possible.
