New Scholar Programs reward achievement
Medline University recently launched a Scholar Program allowing healthcare staff—nurses, nursing assistants, nursing home administrators, case managers, dietitians, nutritionists, physical therapists, and more—to complete designated courses in clinical categories and to earn a badge upon completion to showcase and share expertise. Currently, Medline University offers a Dementia Care Scholar Program comprised of three courses: “Dementia Care 1: “Mental Decline and Caregiving Challenges,” “Dementia Care 2: Physical Decline and Caregiving Challenges,” and “Dementia Care 3: Understanding and Managing Difficult Behavior.”
Next year, Medline University will launch additional Scholar Programs, beginning with clinical topics, including CAUTI Prevention, Infection Prevention, Vascular Access, Skin Health, Central Sterile, Mobility and Safe Patient Handling, and Respiratory care.
“Gaining valuable tools and information and receiving recognition from your peers and supervisors for this achievement—essentially, building your professional ‘brand’—are also important ways to take care of yourself,” said Kass of the Scholar Program.
