Elsevier announces in a press release the availability of Mosby’s Orientation to Home Health Care, a continuing education course to help home care organizations prepare nurses and therapists to provide care for patients in their homes.

According to the release, the course includes practical, evidence-based content that can not only help nurses and therapists new to the specialty, but can also enhance the knowledge of experienced home health care professionals who may have relocated or joined a new agency.

Also per the release, the course streamlines orientation and can complement existing education programs for nurses and therapists.

Additional features include: 24 interactive online lessons, each taking approximately 1 hour to complete; an opportunity to earn continuing education credits; and an optional Knowledge Inventory Tool (KIT) that identifies and provides targeted education to fill knowledge gaps.

More features include resources that support teaching and learning, including a lesson assignment guide, a lesson outline notebook, and preceptor exercises; as well as special features that call attention to key facets of the lesson topic, including case studies, cultural considerations, and evidence in practice, per the release.

“As home health care expands, the healthcare professionals serving these patients need comprehensive education and training on current procedures, technology, medications, quality initiatives, and safety,” says Cindy Tryniszewski, RN, MSN, Executive Director, Clinical eLearning, Elsevier, in the release.

“Because Mosby’s Orientation to Home Health Care is written and peer reviewed by expert home health care nurses and therapists and includes Elsevier’s evidence-based content, we are confident this powerful resource meets the needs of home healthcare professionals,” she continues.
