How Nurses Can Heal America With Medicare For All is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Nov 07, 2019 at Long Beach Marriott, Long Beach, California, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6 CEH. Description: Nurses know that at the root of this crisis is a health care system that puts profits over people. But why does America have the system it has, when virtually every other wealthy nation manages to guarantee health care as a right - and at a fraction of the cost? Why do industry leaders and politicians continue to engage in endless policy debates when a majority of the public already agrees that Medicare for All is the obvious solution to our healthcare crisis? How can nurses help achieve Medicare for All so that America can join the rest of the industrialized world in guaranteeing health care as a right for all people? What else will RNs have to do, beyond winning Medicare for All, in order to bring about real health justice in the United States? This class will provide answers to these questions and will equip nurses with the basic tools they need to put this knowledge into action for the good of their patients, their profession, and their communities. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Draw on a wide range of up-to-date research and international comparisons to accurately diagnose the underlying causes of the current health care crisis. • Describe how a Medicare for All (single-payer) system works, and explain how it will lower health care costs, improve patient outcomes and public health, and safeguard the nursing profession. • Assess how Medicare for All compares to other health care reform proposals on ethical, clinical, professional, and socioeconomic grounds. • Articulate which problems Medicare for All will solve and what challenges will remain under a single-payer system. • Explain how nurses can work with patients, other clinicians and caregivers, and their communities to achieve health justice through Medicare for All and more. Note: 6 CEH classes 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, additional hour available.

Nov 19, 2019 | CEH 6.00 | Long Beach, California
Fighting Back Against Diseases of Devastation is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Nov 19, 2019 at Long Beach Marriott, Long Beach, California, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6 CEHs. Description: Of concern to registered nurses is that drug overdose is now the leading cause of injury and death in the United States - claiming 350,000 lives over the past two decades, with 47,000 deaths in 2017 alone. Twenty seven states have sued the pharmaceutical companies behind the opioid explosion. Yet, people who are in dire need of healthcare and treatment are targeted and penalized for opioid use. As opioids claim lives from nearly every gender, race, ethnicity, and community in the United States, disparate treatment and police responses to the epidemic expose deep-seated race-based fault lines in the U.S. health care and criminal justice systems. Opioid use disorder should be treated as a public health issue. By comparing the opioid crisis with similar diseases of devastation, nurses will analyze the opioid epidemic as a symptom of the outsized influence of Big Pharma in our broken, for-profit health care system. The class will conclude with discussion of systemic interventions nurses can take to heal diseases of devastation and protect nurses’ professional judgment. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Describe diseases of devastation, specifically the opioid epidemic. • Discuss the role of rising drug prices, “me too” drugs, and race in opioid treatment policy. • Compare and contrast registered nurses’ role in advocating for robust public health measures with the pharmaceutical industry’s exploitation of public health. • Explain how nurses’ advocacy for systemic public health interventions - like Medicare for All and others - can counter Big Pharma’s hold on our health care system. Note: All class times 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, additional hour available.
