As infected aid workers return to the US from Africa, and the US plans to send 3,000 military to support the fight against the Ebola outbreak in Africa, many myths abound related to the transmission and treatment of this disease. Should employers be concerned? How should global travel policies and medicine programs be modified? Does your Disaster Planning Program need review and if so, what do you do to prepare for the potential of a future Ebola exposure in the US or abroad, if you work for a global company?
Attend this webinar to learn the latest facts and figures related to the risk of infection, control measures, education and trusted resources for further guidance.

More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Across all types of violence, the majority of female and male victims reported that their perpetrators were male. This staggering data indicates that a public situation similar to that experienced by the NFL with Ray Rice and his partner may currently be private in your workplace, making it particularly difficult to monitor, evaluate, and address. But the need is especially acute because it can create a ripple effect of negative health consequences well beyond the immediate injury with conservative estimates in the billions of dollars in terms of lost productivity, direct medical care, ongoing health care, and lost earnings.
Occupational health nurses have a responsibility to prepare their employers with programs to prevent and/or decrease the risk of IPV among the workforce, detect it early and intervene appropriately when needed. Join this webinar to learn more.

You’ve used critical thinking when a patient has lost consciousness or when you were the first to arrive at an accident scene but what about in your role as an occupational health nurse. Without critical thinking in an occupational health setting, employees would not only be injured on a daily basis, but their entire quality of life would be less than optimal. This session is a wake-up that highlights your area of expertise and how you and your practice are as critical as the ICU environment. You will review your critical thinking skills and revitalize the importance of your role of Occupational Health Nurse!
