Wednesday, October 31, 2012: 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
This session will explore issues of mutual concern regarding public health nursing practice. These issues range from how health insurance credentialing process bias nurse practitioners, how social media advertisements can be used to recruit research participants, how we can create a Coumadin patient knowledge assessment tool, and how we can create public health nursing simulation teaching activities.
Session Objectives: After the session, participants should be able to: 1. Demonstrate knowledge and insight into the workings of health insurance companies, 2. Analyze the capabilities of the use of advertisements on social networking websites, 3. Discuss the effectiveness of the Knowledge Information Profile about Coumadin instrument, and 4. Discuss how students benefit from participating in simulated public health nursing cases.
