Professional Development Webinars & Articles

As you advance in your nursing career, be sure to make time to take care of yourself, too. In an article about self-care practices for nurses on, Keith Carlson, a board-certified nurse coach, suggests applying everyday nursing practices to assess your current state and to set and evaluate your self-care plan.
During this webinar, nurses will learn about the concepts of compassion satisfaction, compassion fatigue, and burnout. Examples specific to the COVID-19 pandemic will be used to emphasize these points. Dr. Mary Bemker-Page, scholar and practitioner, provides a tool kit for nurses to plan and implement strategies for developing self-compassion and self-care that build resiliency to enhance compassion satisfaction and professional quality of life.

Medical professionals are adapting quickly to shifts in patient care and telehealth services promise to allow millions of Americans to seek the care they need when they need it, from the safety of their own homes.

Can your organization embrace this emerging technology? Do you have the tools to transform your services while maintaining the same high-quality care? Find out during our upcoming webinar series.

Join Dr. Virginia Moore, core faculty member in Walden University’s School of Nursing, for an informative three-part webinar series exploring telehealth as an integral component of today’s professional health care practice.

What do we know about the relationship between human papilloma virus (HPV) and the risk of different cancers that might be helpful to designing a vaccination campaign? What information would be important to include in a public health education program on e-cigarette use? The first step in creating evidence-based public health policy and programs is to assess the evidence, including that from epidemiologic research studies. But how do you determine what the causes of diseases really are and then apply this knowledge to public health policy? What is the best use of systematic reviews in this process? In this webinar, we will discuss and use causal inference frameworks and techniques from epidemiology to assess the literature and provide support to help ground evidence-based public health decision-making.

Mental illness is an extensive array of disorders that affect an individual’s mood, thinking, feelings, and behavior. Approximately one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness. The Healthy People 2020, Mental Health and Mental Disorders goal aims to “improve mental health through prevention and by ensuring access to appropriate, quality mental health services.”

The increase in cases of children and young people with a variety of mental and emotional problems suggests a broad responsibility for health promotion planners, all teaching staff, and school health educators. Children are exposed to situations that are an obstacle to healthy development. This situation requires the development of interventions aimed to create living conditions and environments which promote healthy lifestyles. The entire environment of relationships should also be devoted to a healthy development. Likewise, the concept of resiliency promotion represents a contemporary paradigm that promotes the development of various protective factors which can improve interventions and its positive outcomes. The presentation also explores the role of school health teachers in fostering activities that encourage learners’ resilience.

This webinar will attempt to paint a portrait of how the confluence of medicine, pharmaceuticals, and media have put “prevention under attack” in America. The result of this attack impacts a populace with declining health literacy levels that can only be described as Below Basic, meaning an inability to adhere to treatment, low-engagement in health promotion behavior, and low up-take of prevention health services. It’s complicated, so let’s break it down!

What is termed “the opioid epidemic” is complex, and likely composed of a convergence of smaller failures in substance abuse treatment, healthcare, and public policy, as well as the nature of opioids themselves. More Americans died from a drug overdose in 2017 alone than died in the entire Vietnam War, and overdose deaths are higher than deaths from HIV during its deadliest year. Opioid overdoses accounted for more than 47,000 deaths in 2017 (67.8% of all drug deaths). This webinar will examine trends in the incidence rates of opioid overdoses in different regions of the U.S. We will also explore possible determinants of the epidemic and policy responses to the epidemic. Finally, this webinar will discuss a range of future targets in areas of substance abuse prevention, treatment, and policy, including wider use of naloxone to prevent overdose deaths, the adoption of medication assisted treatment (MAT) as standard care for people with opioid use disorders, and increasing acceptance for syringe exchange programs to reduce the infectious disease harms associated with needle sharing.

Posttraumatic Growth Learning about the various forms of trauma, their after effects, the process for getting to posttraumatic growth, and the potential for creating an even more meaningful life can change your life. Research shows that a person’s mental state prior to experiencing a seismic traumatic event could affect how the event is experienced. For anyone who has yet to experience a major trauma in their life, learning how to mitigate the psychological damage and move forward with positive growth may serve to inoculate against the most severe outcomes of trauma.
