Course Created on: March 01, 2019
Course Renewed on: February 28, 2022

Target Audience:
• Registered Nurses (RN)
• Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN)
• Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN/LVN)

Course Overview:
In this course, we will discuss strategies and techniques used to facilitate nursing and medical care in special needs children. This population of patients is extremely rewarding to care for, but they also have complexity that challenges medical staff on a daily basis. Variations in pain expression, verbal ability, physical dissimilarities, and cognitive deficits coupled with potentially anxious or knowledge impaired caregivers are just some of the things that these patients may present with. Having an improved knowledge base regarding these special types of patients will improve health care’s ability to provide the best care. In this course we will discuss strategies used to overcome these barrier and provide high quality care to special needs children.
