Free CPD Points: Free Online Courses for Nurses With Certificates

The Center for the Promotion of Health in the New England Workplace, one of NIOSH’s Total Worker Health Centers of Excellence, has introduced a free online continuing education program intended to help nurses prevent musculoskeletal injuries during clinical care.

Ergonomics in Healthcare includes learning modules, case studies, videos, reference materials and guidelines for reducing injuries incurred while treating patients. The program discusses ergonomic risk factors in health care settings – including workstation layout and weight of handled objects – and ways organizations can manage them.

According to 2015 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nursing assistants and registered nurses ranked among the top six occupations to experience musculoskeletal disorders. A Sept. 4 CPH-NEW press release cites data showing that sprains, strains and tears from overexertion and patient handling account for 45 percent of all occupational injuries among hospital workers. In Massachusetts, MSDs represent 25 percent of workers’ compensation lost-time claims filed by hospital workers.

“This new online continuing education tool will help nurses protect their own health and advocate for comprehensive safe patient handling and mobility programs in their health care facilities,” Laura Punnett, CPH-NEW co-director and University of Massachusetts-Lowell professor, said in the release.

Abu Dhabi to host 2018 International Council of Nurses’ Conference

Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (Adnec) will host the International Council of Nurses’ first regional conference at its Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from September 25 to 27.
This important conference will be co-hosted with the Emirates Nursing Association (ENA) and in collaboration with the Seha International Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health conference.
This regional gathering of nurses will focus on the strategic topic of ‘Ensuring access to healthcare through leadership, innovation and collaborative practice’, an area of particular interest for the GCC region.
The forum will act as a platform for the exchange of experience and expertise among the nursing community, discuss best international practices, network and build relationships and disseminate knowledge and information among the global nursing fraternity. Registration or the conference is now open until September 24.
The event assumes tremendous significance for the region, given that the International Council of Nurses has chosen Abu Dhabi as the next host city for its congress in 2021, widely complementing the emirate’s continuing efforts to be a regional hub for medical excellence.
Khalifa Al Qubaisi, acting chief commercial officer at Adnec, said: “We are pleased to host the strategic ICN 2018 regional conference in September. The event is an extremely vital one for the region, as it will help assess international best practices in the field of nursing and align the UAE’s nursing and health strategies with global trends. We expect some of the best minds in the profession, both regional and global, to converge for this landmark event.
“Adnec has a rich history of hosting major events, exhibitions and conferences that fall in line with its strategy of hosting events that nurture the key economic sectors of the country. We are confident that the ICN conference will add to our growing repertoire of niche events that strengthen and consolidate Adnec’s position as a leading destination for events of any size or capacity in the region,” he added.
“This inaugural regional conference will be a key step in ICN’s strategy to strengthen its regional work,” said Professor Thomas Kearns, ICN’s interim chief executive officer. “We are grateful to the Emirates Nursing Association, the Seha International Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health conference and Adnec for working with us to make this exciting event a reality.”
Aysha Al Mahri, president of the Emirates Nursing Association, said: “We are honoured to host the first ICN regional conference. Since its establishment, the ENA exists exclusively to strengthen the nursing profession in the UAE and has been a member of the International Nursing Council (ICN) since May 2005. We believe that this opportunity will strengthen the collaboration between us and ICN and our local partners namely Adnec and Seha and will promote nursing in UAE and the region.
Dr Samah Mahmoud, chair of Seha International Nursing, Midwifery & Allied Health Conference (Sinmac), said: “Sinmac is an annual assembly of healthcare-related professionals in the UAE region which was launched in 2011. Over the years Sinmac fostered for a strong collaboration between nursing, midwifery, and allied health professions throughout the UAE, regionally and internationally.”  – TradeArabia News Service
