B1 - Acting with Urgency: Leading & Following in the COVID Era

Description:

In the chaos created by a confluence of social, political and scientific factors, healthcare providers have a tendency to become complacent or to act with a sense of false urgency. These are not conducive actions to promote health of patients and communities. Nurse practitioners need to learn and refine skills to act with true urgency in order to be effective and resilient in the current social health climate.

Learning Objectives:

-Articulate the hazards & opportunities within the current healthcare landscape.

-Define & identify the implications of complacency & false urgency in nursing practice settings.

-Develop an operational knowledge of true urgency & apply the concept in a variety of leadership contexts.

C1 - Keep It Simple: The Power of Brief Therapeutic Interventions

Description:

Compelling evidence suggests that both medications and therapeutic interventions are effective in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. The current “state of the science” involves multiple modalities to produce better outcomes than those observed with the use of either psychopharmacology or therapy alone. Nurse practitioners in all settings need to understand how various therapeutic interventions can profoundly influence clients’ ability to cope and change. Using the unifying framework developed by Hubble, Duncan, and Miller, we examine the four common elements that account for much of the improvement seen in clients, regardless of the approach taken. These constructs are applied to a variety of simple, brief approaches that are easily enacted – and easily adapted – to any patient encounter.

Learning Objectives:

-Define the common framework for brief mental health interventions.

-Analyze each element in the context of advanced practice nursing.

-Operationalize the common framework for solution-focused interventions.

Speakers:
Josh Hamilton, DNP, RN-BC, FNP-C, PMHNP-BC, CNE, FAANP

Supported by an educational grant from Novo Nordisk.

Abstract:

Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) are an important element in the American Diabetes Association’s treatment algorithm for T2DM, yet they are under-prescribed. Learn about the benefits and limitations of GLP-1RAs and how they are making a difference in the lives of patients with T2DM.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the activity, participants will be able to:
• Compare the glycemic and extra-glycemic profile of GLP-1RAs with other classes of medications for type 2 diabetes mellitus.
