Health Literacy in Nursing: Providing Person-Centered Care is organized by Anderson Continuing Education. Expiration Date: 12/31/2020 Conference Description: Promoting the health literacy of patients across all settings is an essential component of prevention, wellness, and effective medical treatment. Health Literacy in Nursing: Providing Person-Centered Care provides an overview of health literacy, discusses the magnitude of the issue, and explains implications of low health literacy. It details strategies to enhance effective communication between patients and nurses. Contents: • Part I - Health Literacy: The Magnitude of the Problem • Part II - Oral Communication • Part III - Written Health Communication • Part IV - Health Literacy and Unique Populations Pilot Study Nurse Comments • Health lit should be a required course for every nurse. SO important! I loved this book and I will reread it for a reference! • After completing I feel like I have actually learned something. Above all this course gave me more insight into patient teaching. • The course is very important. I think the patient often gets lost and doesn’t understand what is presented medically because it is not always clear. I think this course should be required. The medical community forgets to present material in a clear concise way. • This was excellent and information that was new to me. It made me think about the importance of health literacy. I have been in nursing for so long I had forgotten how medical terms can be so new and confusing to others. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

They are happy to invite you to the 7th International Multidisciplinary Good Medical Research Digital Congress. This Congress will be held from 24 - 31 October digitally across Istanbul, New York and Tokyo time zones for 24/7. They are in the 9th year of Medicres’ Good Medical Research themed events. Accreditation: This Congress has been approved for a maximum of 56 MACMEC Credits (Full Participation). MedicReS GMR 2020 daily - 8 MACMEC CME Credits. Description: This year Covid-19 pandemic showed us that the only reliable source we can turn to in such situations is medical research and if the research we have in the literature is not reliable, then we have nothing at all. This is exactly what we have been standing against as MedicReS for many years now; we are completely against waste literature. Now, we are calling out to students, presidents of various associations, publishers, all those individuals and bodies who have a responsibility in this aspect. In a scientific research study, in every step of the way from choosing a subject, to planning, data gathering, criticism and synthesis, a combination of scientific methodology, ethics and biostatistics science and clinical knowledge is meticulously put to use. Responsible researchers should have the scientific maturity to be willing to continuous education in this area; furthermore, they should be willing to acknowledge that topics that they think they know very well may be biased. The most important are MedicReS operates in is post-graduation “Good Medical Researcher” trainings. MedicReS Good Medical Research congress will be supported by conferences held in different clinical areas. Topics we will be covering during the conference include, first off all choosing a research subject; research ethics, publishing ethics, bioethics, correct research design for disease and purpose, data analysis suitable for chosen design; research paper writing techniques for chosen design, referee standardization, scientific ways of preventing biases during research planning, steps to be taken to ensure validity and efficacy; scientific criticism standards of published research; courses on critical article writing skills, methods for learning biostatistics, ethics, and research methods in graduate and post graduate levels; using technology effectively in medical and research education. We will discuss these issues in main sessions and in private sessions in all clinical areas. Our congress has a different structure and content compared to national congresses of clinical sciences. It is possible to apply to the congress with research proposals in planning stage and research published a year before the date of the congress or with critical or contributing responses to published research. Our congress is multidisciplinary, and it is possible to join all sessions and trainings with only the registration fee. In some workshops and sessions, there may be limited participants allowed or the language may not be English. While the official written language of the Congress in English; presentations in 20 languages will be accepted. Therefore we advise you to be careful about the language and maximum participant numbers of sessions you would like to participate in. We would be happy if you could complete your registration posthaste. We encourage our participants to become members of MedicReS Club as well. In this scientific celebration that will continue for a week for almost 24 hours in different time zones, there will also be special sessions or Covid-19 in all clinical sciences and separately as well. There are many things that this epidemic has taught us. We will meet freely without the constraints of time and place or language by using technology and by saving time too. Everything we do is for good research. We sincerely wish to see you in our congress. Kind Regards, Prof. Dr. Arzu KANIK MedicReS Global Scientific Director

1st Conference on health crises and education in the time of Covid-19 is organized by Hedra and will be held from Nov 14 - 15, 2020. Description: This conference brings together academics, educators and practitioners from a wide variety of fields, for a collaborative, multidisciplinary exploration of the ways in which the pandemic has impacted education, and medical / nursing education. Themes and issues for the conference include, but are not limited to: Stream A: Medical Education Medical, nursing and other healthcare educators must train students, and a range of approaches have been taken, from placing interns into functional roles, to clinical simulations, to case studies. In what ways can these effectively replace previous pedagogic modalities? How will it impact the lives, careers and learning of medical and nursing students? In what ways do the new working realities and the ‘hidden curriculum’ take a toll on them? What happens to medical educators functioning under lockdown? What limitations do they experience? How can this be handled? Stream B: Education How has the coronavirus impacted education? Many teachers and university lecturers are lecturing online. Do the platforms that connect them with their students also create barriers? Their students are studying, progressing and being assessed under lockdown conditions. To what degree do the technical affordances of online teaching meet, or fail to meet teaching and learning needs? How well do they approximate previous pedagogic practices and instruments? What are the changes and the challenges to curriculum, delivery, interactions and assessment? How do administrators, teachers and students respond to this situation? How will this experience impact the lives, careers and understanding of these students? What the new working realities? What are new norms, beliefs and values of online teaching and learning? Will online delivery replace traditional teaching? Stream C: Coronavirus and compassionate care What does compassionate care mean, in a time of pandemic? What are the trade-offs between compassionate interactions, and real clinical situations? Many clinicians and practitioners now work in contexts of limited resources and adverse policies. How can it be enacted in the daily practice of clinicians and practitioners? What is compassionate care, in such circumstances? How can we educate clinicians and practitioners, to prepare them for these challenges, when they are also dealing with stress, overwork, mental illness, addiction, negative administrative contexts, administrative burdens, dysfunctional workplaces, the politicisation of medicine, inadequate PPE, insufficient medtech, work-life balance, the pressure to be perfect, and other difficulties of their jobs? What are the limits of these daily norms? Where should we be pushing these norms and limits, and how? What do different kinds of patients want, and expect, in situations such as end-of-life care? How do norms and practices of compassionate care differ with age, gender, native language, cross-linguistics situations, culture, class, ability, and other elements of identity? Stream D: Data analytics and the pandemic In order to find out how the pandemic is impacting medical and nursing students, we are soliciting papers from medical and nursing educators. These papers ask use structured interviews, and evaluate the data with content analysis software. Conference participants interested in cooperating with this effort will publish papers in a journal special issue with HEDRA advisory board members.
