Continuing Education Opportunities
As part of our work in the southeast region of Nebraska, we strive to provide current health topic education opportunities for working healthcare professionals. Please check back periodically for upcoming events either sponsored or supported by the Southeast Nebraska AHEC.
Counseling on Access to Lethal Means
Reducing access to lethal means, such as firearms and medication, can determine whether a person at risk for suicide lives or dies.
Access this course to learn about how to reduce access to the methods people use to kill themselves. It covers who needs lethal means counseling and how to work with people at risk for suicide—and their families—to reduce access.
Suicide Prevention Training for Medical Professionals
All Patients Safe is an interactive, web-based suicide prevention training made by and for medical professionals. It offers an engaging and informative option for providers to become better skilled at suicide prevention. Perspectives of real patients coupled with practical skills help medical providers transfer what they learn to their practice and community.
The course is appropriate for physicians and physician assistants, advanced registered nurse practitioners, registered nurses, medical social workers, dentists, physical therapists, and pharmacists, and can be completed in either a three or six-hour setting.
A Pharmacists Training for Tobacco Cessation Counseling
The CDC has designated 2019 as the “Year of cessation”. To help address tobacco cessation, The Nebraska Pharmacists Association (NPA) will be hosting the upcoming training webinar opportunity.
Upon successful completion of the webinar, pharmacists should be able to:
· Devise a plan for nicotine cessation counseling using clinical practice guidelines
