Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating mental disorder that can occur in people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. Nearly everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, yet most people recover from initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD. While some risk factors are associated with increased risk of PTSD, resilience factors reduce the risk of PTSD. PTSD can be successfully treated using a combination of strategies.

Over the years, the perception of nursing has evolved from nursing as an occupation to nursing as a profession. There are a number of factors that influence whether the nurse is perceived as a professional by the public, other professionals, and through introspection. Despite the varying educational levels, advanced practice nurses, and diversity of roles seen in the nursing profession, there is an underlying set of core values and skill sets that make the nurse a professional. It is time that nursing is recognized as a profession and the nurse is recognized as a professional.Enduring Material Expires: 11/07/2020
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.Enduring Material Expires: 1/22/2022
