How Nurses Can Heal America With Medicare For All is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Dec 12, 2019 at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino, Reno, Nevada, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6 CEH. Description: American health care is in crisis, and nurses are on the frontlines. Skyrocketing costs are causing nurses’ patients to get sicker as they delay or forgo necessary care. RNs witness growing frustration and despair in their communities as medical debt undermines economic security and hospital closures exacerbate public health disparities. And on top of it all, nurses are forced to deal with constant health and safety risks and increasingly stressful workplaces as they struggle to provide the highest quality care for their patients and advocate for their communities. 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: Classes 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, additional hour available.
