- Hypertension Management: Evidence-Based Guidelines 4 4Course release date: 1/6/2022
About the Course
This program is intended to provide a hypertension treatment overview. Safe and effective prescribing decisions must be guided by an in-depth understanding of each agent: how it works, how to dose it, anticipated adverse events, drug interactions, etc. When combination drugs are included, there may be as many as 200 different pharmacological options (both individual agents as well as combination products) that are approved by FDA for the treatment of hypertension. As a result, this educational program is designed only to highlight the major categories of therapeutics by identifying key products and characterizing them as a class. To provide perspective, an effort was made to provide highlights of clinically meaningful outcomes studies for the various drug classes.
- Mental Health Disorders in the United States Veteran Population 2Course release date: 1/18/2023
About the Course
Veterans have been involved in wars for decades. Recent research indicates there are approximately 19 million veterans. The population includes veterans from World War II to the Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom eras. Because wars have been a fact of life for so much of history, it is clear that war-related mental health issues have also been around for much of history and may have been left untreated based on lack of resources, stigma, and case complexity. Therefore, the purpose of this education program is to assist the learner in recognizing mental health disorders, the disorders’ psychosocial effects, and treatment options for veterans and their families.
- Monitoring Techniques for Optimal Diabetes Management and Control 2Course release date: 10/12/2022
About this Course
The purpose of this course is to assist in the successful management of diabetes, including blood glucose monitoring (BGM) and the ability of persons with diabetes to monitor the effectiveness of their diabetes treatment plan to understand better the interrelationships of food, activity, and medication-taking. In addition, BGM data can alert the person to hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, inspiring lifestyle modifications that may help people with diabetes achieve their A1C goals. Diabetes technology has resulted in many improvements in blood glucose meters. Continuing advances in BGM have led to the development of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems that enable people with diabetes to optimize glycemic stability and improve the quality of their lives. This course reviews the features and functionality of BGM with glucometers and CGMs in line with the 2022 American Diabetes Association (ADA) evidence-based guidelines integrated into clinical practice.
