Teach the Trainer: Closing the Feedback Loop
Saturday, Aug. 13

At times, there appears to be a disconnect between students and their clinical instructors. Through the identification of effective feedback strategies, the missing piece in the feedback loop can be put in place to help close the loop and thus help to improve student performance. For this event, we welcome clinical and/or classroom instructors in the following health care disciplines: nursing, radiologic technologist, respiratory care practitioner, sonographer, surgical technologist, physical therapist, physical therapist assistant, occupational therapist and occupational therapist assistant.

This program will provide current information and evidence-based practice guidelines that will enhance clinical and professional practice related to the care of the older adult.

This activity is being jointly provided by Nebraska Methodist College Professional Development, Sanford USD Medical Center, Hillcrest Health Services and Immanuel Communities. The event is being sponsored by Bellevue University. We welcome nurses, physicians, social workers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, medical assistants and individuals working with older adults. 


What Healthcare Workers Need To Know About the Monkeypox Outbreak

Monkeypox is on the rise in the United States, and some may be wondering if another health care threat is in the works. In this program, you'll learn about the monkeypox outbreak, including who's at risk, transmission, how to spot signs of monkeypox, when health care workers might face risk and treatment options for people who contract the virus. We welcome all nurses, respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physical therapists and anyone else interested in learning more about the monkeypox virus.
