MED-ED  eLearning Courses

In response to the learning needs assessment data, the CEOD has purchased a one year unlimited subscription for four MED-ED e-learning modules.  The registration links for the ECG Interpretation, Everything Cardiac, Neurovascular Crisis and Rapid Response will be available for one year, expiring 11/17/2018.
 
Once the nurses are ready to register, the first page of the link will detail the computer requirements needed to view our eLearning modules.  Employees should use their wvumedicine.org work e-mail address when registering and use WVU Hospitals as the company name.

After verifying that they can view our eLearning course, the nurses can then proceed to click the “Sign Up Here” button at the bottom of the page. Once they submit their registration it takes approximately 15 minutes for their login credentials to become active in our system. From that point, their one year term will have begun and they may proceed with viewing the course material. Each user will receive an e-mail confirming their registration and detailing their username and password.
 
ECG Interpretation: Rhythms & 12-Leads
 
Healthcare providers caring for patients who require cardiac monitoring must have an in-depth knowledge of electrocardiography in order to accurately and rapidly assess rhythm strips and 12-leads. Early identification is crucial to the early recognition of potentially life-threatening abnormalities. This course examines both ECG rhythms and 12-leads. The arrhythmia modules will discuss the fundamental knowledge necessary to accurately identify disturbances in cardiac rhythms and are recommended before viewing the 12-lead modules. The 12-lead modules present common abnormalities found in the 12-lead ECG and challenge learners with numerous examples to test their skills. This course is designed for the new nurse as well as the experienced nurse who desires to improve his or her interpretive skills.
 
 
This program provides a clinically applicable review of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology, cardiac assessment, cardiovascular pharmacology and interventions based on current guidelines for the most common cardiac disorders seen in clinical practice. Content includes a review of cardiac physiology that can be applied in daily practice, the physiological basis for cardiovascular drug therapy and the pathophysiology, diagnosis and guideline-based treatment strategies for heart failure, acute coronary syndromes and atrial fibrillation. Clinically useful tips on noninvasive assessment techniques and 12-Lead ECG interpretation can be applied in any clinical setting where cardiac patients receive care. Evidence-based practice standards for bedside cardiac monitoring for arrhythmia identification, ST-segment monitoring and QT interval monitoring provide a foundation for the delivery of high quality patient care in any monitored setting. Take your knowledge of cardiovascular patient care to a higher level and improve outcomes for your patients.
 
Neurovascular Crisis: Caring for Stroke Patients
 
Strokes are a life-threatening vascular complication, but rapid assessment and interventions can save lives. This course focuses on the stroke syndromes, using current guidelines in managing the care of the neurological crisis. Different types of strokes will be explored, from ischemic to hemorrhagic. The course begins with instruction on the vascular anatomy of the brain with the neurological assessment focused on localization of the stroke. Thrombotic ischemic strokes, aneurysm ruptures, subarachnoid hemorrhages, vasospasms, hypertensive bleeds and cardio embolic strokes (including management guidelines for atrial fibrillation) will be presented. Issues of stroke prevention and rehabilitation following the stroke will also be introduced. Specific interventions, such as therapeutic hypothermia and ICP monitoring, will be discussed. This course provides enough basic review to assist the new neurological nurse, but also addresses more complicated, in-depth information for the experienced nurse.
 
Rapid Response: Avoiding Failure to Rescue
 
This comprehensive course will provide the bedside nurse and members of the Rapid Response Team (RRT) with the tools necessary to recognize clinical deterioration and avert failure to rescue. The course will begin with an overview of the Rapid Response System (RRS) and the subsequent development of an RRT. This is followed by an overview of the roles for the bedside caregiver and members of the RRT. Detailed scenarios will be presented that will challenge the attendee to critically think through the process of assessment, identification of the problem and then strategies for management.

CCRN
This course provides the critical care nurse with a review of AACN's core curriculum. The agenda combines central knowledge-based lectures for nurses working in the ICU with an essential review of nursing care and interventions according to the AACN exam blueprint for the critical care provider. This review is not an introduction to the ICU but a comprehensive update for the professional at the bedside and preparing for the certification examination.
 
Med-Surg
This course is designed to provide nurses with the tools, confidence and knowledge to successfully complete the Medical-Surgical Nursing Exam. The exam content outlines and blueprints from the ANCC and MSNCB were used to develop this program. Topics covered from the exam content outlines include: review of body systems, cardiac, pulmonary, neurologic, gastrointestinal, renal, genitourinary, reproductive, endocrine, hematologic, musculoskeletal, immune and more. Pathophysiology of disease processes including signs and symptoms and treatment modalities will be presented. The nursing process and nursing practice roles in the management of patient care will be discussed through case scenarios and sample questions. All aspects of the practice domains and test-taking strategies will also be covered.
 
TCRN
This trauma certification review course is designed and developed to prepare nurses specializing in trauma care to take the TCRN Examination. This review course provides topics featured on the examination such as neurotrauma, chest, abdominal, extremity and wound, injury prevention and professional issues in trauma nursing. It also provides hints throughout the course on test-taking skills
