Methamphetamine is a central nervous system stimulant similar in structure to amphetamine. Methamphetamine is classified as a Schedule 2 drug, which means it has a high potential for abuse and psychological or physical dependence. This module provides nurses with information about methamphetamine, including short- and long-term effects, high-risk groups and treatment strategies.
Preventing Violence in the Healthcare Setting
CE130-60
Violence in healthcare reflects the chaos of a broader work environment. Nurses heighten their expertise in dealing with violence by learning to identify risk factors and warning signs and by applying interventions that could shield their patients and themselves from harm.
Crisis Intervention: Helping Patients Regain Safety and Control
CE582
The goal of crisis intervention is to return individuals or families to the optimum level of functioning they experienced before the crisis. Nurses need to know assessment and intervention strategies because they are often the first medical personnel to spend enough time with patients to recognize the signs of crisis.
Psychiatric Emergencies in the ED
CE580
A psychiatric emergency is any disturbance in thoughts, feelings, or actions that causes sufficient personal distress or inflicts sufficient distress on others so that medical care is sought. ED nurses can play a pivotal role in addressing the patient, family, and institutional demands of managing patients with psychiatric illnesses who present to the ED.
Clearing Up the Confusion About Delirium
CE367-60
Delirium is a medical condition manifested as a disturbance in consciousness and cognition that occurs for a short time. Delirium occurs in around 50% of hospitalized patients 65 years or older. Thirty to 40% of delirium cases among hospitalized patients are preventable. Nurses are frontline observers who can recognize beginning signs of delirium and initiate care.

Those with substance use, borderline personality disorder, anorexia nervosa, depression, and bipolar disorder have the highest risk for suicide.

Preventing Suicide in Medical Settings
CE649
Inpatient settings are not designed to house patients who are suicidal, and healthcare professionals working in those settings often lack the specialized training to deal with patients at risk for suicide. This activity will address the detection and treatment of suicidal ideation in all medical settings.
Psychosis, Mood, and Anxiety: Understanding Mental Illness

Neuropsychiatric disorders have surpassed cardiovascular conditions in causing disability and premature death. Nurses encounter people with mental illness daily through their work in EDs or other healthcare settings.
