Why is a healthy lifestyle so important for older adults?
Today, many people are living longer lives, but often with chronic diseases that can truly impact the quality of those extra years. Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), arthritis, and osteoporosis are among the most common health concerns for seniors but getting a diagnosis can provided much-needed motivation to take action.
Continuing Education (CE) can feel like exercise. You feel better once it's done, but it's difficult to take the initiative to start.
We get it. That's why our CE credits, which are required to maintain certification status and required in certain states to maintain employment, are:
- Diverse to match your needs/interests
- Developed by experts who are in the field and understand what it takes to succeed
- Are succinct yet impactful, so you can get the most benefit from your time investment
There are plenty of headlines in our 24-hour news cycle sharing the latest information about COVID-19. But, as a healthcare professional, you may feel like you need more in-depth information to help you prepare to work with or near patients, now and in the future.
This series represents a variety of radiology topics that apply to health care professionals working in the industry. Certificants will learn about the types of professionals that take x-rays, different medical imaging modalities and what anatomical structures can be viewed with each modality as well as ways to protect themselves and the patient against excessive radiation. To learn more about each specific offering, read the individual descriptions for each module.
This series addresses four different specialties and focuses on a specific condition/disease associated with that specialty. The specialties include OB-GYN, Cardiology, Dermatology and Pediatrics. Read individual descriptions associated with each one.
Allied health professionals are essential to the process of delivering quality patient care. Join us to see how allied health professionals make a critical difference in the health and well being of patients.
Most organizations are taking new and alternative approaches to address overwhelmed practitioners and frustrated patients who suffer from chronic conditions. A new model of healthcare being introduced into primary care practices uses a team-based approach and relies widely on health coaches to support the patient and the provider. Health coaches offer support and guidance to the patient transforming their experience and overall wellness.
In this video presentation, Jessica Langley, Executive Director of Education and Advocacy for NHA, discusses the benefits of health coaching, as well as opportunities for MAs to expand their role, by offering the provider a greater level of support, while working alongside patients and families to become more proactive in their healthcare.
