    The Ig nurse’s role is of critical importance in ensuring optimal patient outcomes are actualized for patients requiring immunoglobulin therapy. The use of evidence-based standards of practice, such as the IgNS Therapy Standards of Practice, is increasingly important in everyday practice across the care continuum. This session will provide information and strategies for the Ig nurse to become equipped to assess patients and develop a treatment plan, educate the patients on their disease and treatment options, and ensure they have optimal clinical outcomes and quality of care. When necessary, the Ig nurse needs to be an advocate for the patient, assisting him or her in areas of reimbursement, medical care, support services, etc. Today’s health care landscape provides unique challenges and dynamics, and a discussion on how this impacts Ig care will conclude the presentation.

    Learning Objectives

    After the session, attendees will understand the importance of patient ­assessments specific to Ig therapy; be able to list risk factors of Ig therapy and describe management of and emergency preparedness; be able to discuss Ig dosing, product differences, and administration practices, and how each ­impacts patient outcomes; and understand the importance of the ­procurement and reimbursement landscape, including the 21st Century Cures Act (HR 6) and the impact to the patient’s treatment plan and outcomes.

  • Qualification or Certification?

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 05/08/2017

    After the session, attendees will be able to identify the difference between ­qualification and certification and the value of each.

    Employers are fighting for employees and looking for ways to promote their organization. One way to promote quality for an organization is to recognize their nurses’ skills. Nurses are competing for their dream job and need to promote their skill sets to be considered. Both situations result in nurses ­highlighting specific special skill sets to others. Terms often used for this highlighted focus is qualification or certification. While these terms are frequently used interchangeably, they mean very different things. This session will delineate between qualification and certification and discuss the value each brings to the nurse when competing for positions.

    Learning Objectives

    After the session, attendees will be able to identify the difference between ­qualification and certification and the value of each.

  • Pediatric Hemophilia Care and Treatment

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 01/24/2017

    Hemophilia is a congenital blood disorder that prevents the formation of fibrin, which allows for sustained clotting. People with hemophilia are missing or have reduced amounts of this important clotting factor, so bleeding continues until they receive treatment. Hemophilia is not a disorder that is often seen in a hospital setting, and because of the variety of factor deficits and classifications, the care of each patient differs. The care and nursing management of a pediatric patient with hemophilia is often intimidating for the family, as well as for the professional care giver.
