Feline Conservation Federation Offers Two Continuing Education Courses on Feline Husbandry and Conservation Education

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) May 16, 2015

The Feline Conservation Federation (FCF) will teach its highly acclaimed Wild/Exotic Feline Husbandry Course and its Wildlife Conservation Educator’s Course on Wednesday, June 24 at the Wichita Airport La Quinta Inn and Suites in Wichita, Kansas. FCF membership is not required to take either of these two continuing education classes. Attendees may also sign up for the FCF Convention which follows on Thursday and runs through Saturday night.

The FCF Wild/Exotic Feline Husbandry Course topics include natural history, regulations, behavior shaping, diet, habitat and enclosure design, health care and contingency plans.

Husbandry Course instructor Mindy Stinner is the co-founder of the Conservator’s Center in Mebane, North Carolina. Stinner says “One of the reasons this is a great course is that students participate in discussions. Since captive husbandry covers a variety of venues, everyone has different experiences that provide new insights and ideas for the betterment of wild felines under care.”

Because exotic felines are tightly regulated by city, county, state and federal law, committed owners need to excel at husbandry knowledge and practices. Stinner says, “Taking this course will benefit feline caregivers at any level of experience, from novice to seasoned zookeeper.

The Wildlife Conservation Educator Course will be taught by two experienced educators. Michelle McKay, founder of Zoofari Educational Encounters, and Kim Barker, educator at Conservator’s Center will be instructing this class. The FCF course gives students the tools necessary to become qualified as professional conservation educators specializing in wild felines.” The instruction manual teaches the basics on outreach shows and how to promote a business. More advanced topics such as how to expand an existing wildlife education business, and how to present effective conservation messages that engage, entertain, and capture the viewers’ attention are covered as well. Students are familiarized with the various licenses and requirements, and how to choose and prepare animals for outreach ambassador rolls.

The FCF recognizes the positive value of increasing public understanding of the many threats to natural eco-systems. FCF executive director Lynn Culver says, “Becoming a wildlife educator is one way to spread awareness about wildlife and their survival issues. Informing folks about conservation is important, but experience has proven that combining the message with introductions of spectacular animal ambassadors reaches an audience’s heart and motivates personal changes that can help save wildlife and wild places.”

Both classes start at 8:00 a.m. and run to 6:00 p.m. at the Wichita Airport Las Quinta Hotel and Suites, in Wichita, Kansas. Lunch is provided. Students receive a textbook to take home. Students that complete the course and pass the test receive a Certificate of Educational Achievement suitable for framing.

An online registration form can be used to sign up for either class and to pay the $ 145 fee. Lodging at La Quinta is available for $ 95 a night, breakfast included. Call the hotel at 800-255-6484 and mention the FCF Convention to reserve a room at this price.

The Feline Conservation Federation is a self-regulating society of exotic feline owners and handlers with an established group of professional members. FCF members hold important genetic resources that help conserve feline species and are a key resource of ambassador animals used to teach the public about wildlife conservation. Culver says, “Being better informed is the best way to help felines. Teaching the FCF Husbandry Course improves captive feline welfare and teaching the Wildlife Educator’s course improves the outlook for felines in nature.”

North American Seminars introduces ” Making Sense of Neck Pain”, An OT and PT Continuing Education Course Presented in New Jersey, Illinois and Indiana in 2015

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) January 31, 2015

This one day intermediate level PT continuing education course blends home study training from a professionally filmed and mastered DVD with online PT continuing education course access with face to face interactive instruction and hands on lab sessions. The course has been carefully designed to maximize the learning experience by combining the self-paced online/DVD home study material with a focused hands-on training session in the classroom.

Managing patients with neck pain can be confusing and frustrating for novice and experienced clinicians alike. In this hybrid self-study and one-day intermediate-level seminar, Dr. Durall will provide a systematic and integrative approach that demystifies the screening and treatment process, reduces frustration, and most importantly helps clinicians manage neck disorders with greater confidence and proficiency. Treatment-based classification and a novel algorithm are used as the course framework to streamline clinical decision making and care planning. Examination techniques and strategies that are introduced are straightforward and supported by research and clinical experience. Numerous intervention strategies are covered including mobilization & manipulation, therapeutic exercise, and directionally-specific exercise to provide clinicians with a diverse array of options to help optimize functional ability. Recent advances in cervico-thoracic spine research are integrated throughout the course to provide clinicians with new insights and rationale for decision making. Several special rehabilitation topics pertaining to the cervical spine will be covered including cervicogenic headaches and whiplash-associated disorders. Participants can expect to refine and advance their clinical skills in a supportive and relaxed learning environment. Hands-on lab time is incorporated throughout the course to promote immediate clinical application.

As an intermediate-level PT OT continuing education course on neck pain, it is expected that participants are familiar with the fundamental components of the cervical spine examination (e.g. ROM assessment, manual muscle testing, palpation, etc.). Thus these foundational skills are not covered. This course is intended for Physical Therapists although it may be suitable for Occupational Therapists, PTAs, or OTAs with strong orthopedic backgrounds.

PT OT Continuing Education Course Objectives

Perform select orthopedic special tests of the cervical-thoracic region to rule out specific disorders and to formulate differential diagnoses.
Identify signs and symptoms of vertebral artery dysfunction, upper cervical spine instability, or cervical myelopathy that warrant referral to another healthcare provider.
Recognize patients at risk for long-term disability.
Classify neck disorders, based on examination findings, for purposes of care planning and intervention decision-making.
Perform thrust and non-thrust manual therapy techniques to the thoracic spine, 1st rib, or cervical spine.
Select and implement appropriate intervention techniques for patients with arm symptoms in association with neck pain.
Formulate evidence-based therapeutic exercise programs to improve dynamic stabilization of the cervico-thoracic spine.
Identify and manage patients with cervicogenic headaches.
Differentiate cervicogenic headaches from other types of headaches.
Manage patients with acute neck pain (e.g. whiplash-associated disorder).
Identify treatments available for myofascial neck pain.
Adjust the treatment emphasis for patients with sub-acute or chronic neck pain.
Select and implement standardized functional performance instruments to assess patient outcome success.
Integrate current evidence on the cervico-thoracic spine into clinical practice.

This course will be presented at:

Englewood Hospital and Medical Center located in Englewood, NJ on May 1 2015

Vital Rehabilitation located in Chicago, IL on May 15 2015

Diet Doc Discloses the Secret of How to Burn Belly Fat Naturally, Safely and Rapidly With Updated Diet Plans, Education and Personal Support

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2014

Everyone wants to know how to burn belly fat without enduring rigorous daily exercise routines and suffering through the loss of energy, food cravings and between meal hunger that typically accompanies a reduced caloric intake. Diet Doc has a new advantage over the competition because their medical weight loss programs are designed and supervised by physicians, who are specially trained in the science of safe and fast weight loss, enabling the company to continuously update and apply the most modern strategies and prescription diet products to their diet plans.

Diet Doc realizes that different people require different weight loss techniques. For this reason, they work closely with each patient to get to know them. The doctor reviews each patient’s entire system during an online consult, enabling diet plans to be created that are perfectly suited for each patient’s personal nutritional, lifestyle and medical needs, as well as keeping their food preferences in mind to allow them to enjoy some of their favorite dishes as well.

Diet plans are designed by certified nutritionists who intimately understand how to burn belly fat by understanding the body’s reaction to specific foods. Diet plans are uniquely designed for those who have struggled to lose that final 10-20 pounds to those who must lose 100 pounds or more. Patients find the meal and snack plans interesting because they incorporate a wide range of healthy, delicious food choices that leave them feeling full and satisfied. And, a recent in-house survey, of over 20,000 Diet Doc patients revealed that an average weight loss of up to 20 pounds per month motivated them to stick with their original weight loss intentions.

Most dieters will experience between meal hunger, cravings for their favorite high carbohydrate foods and loss of energy. With this in mind, Diet Doc updated their diet plans to include their pure, prescription hormone diet treatments and exclusive diet pills and appetite suppressants that allow patients to smoothly and comfortably transition into their new body without suffering from the typical dieting side effects. While dieters are learning how to break bad habits, the meal plans and prescription hormone treatments are signaling the brain to seek out fat that is stored dangerously around the internal organs to be released into the bloodstream and quickly flushed from the system.

Patients who turn to Diet Doc to learn how to burn belly fat will join a team of weight loss professionals who are specially educated in the science of fast weight loss. They are never alone. Doctors, nurses, nutritionists and coaches are available 6 days per week via phone or email to answer questions, offer suggestions or simply to lend their unlimited support, guidance and encouragement if the going gets tough. Progress, comfort level and attitude are monitored with scheduled weekly checkup calls enabling the doctors to react quickly if weight loss tapers by modifying the diet plan and returning the body to fast burn mode.

Diet Doc understands that many people do not have the time or the financial means to travel to an from doctor’s offices and weight loss clinics to learn how to burn belly fat. For this reason, patients can simply log onto the internet or call the company to complete a health questionnaire and schedule their consultation with a Diet Doc physician. And, for added convenience, all checkup calls and prescription refills can easily and effortlessly be reordered over the phone or internet to be delivered directly to their home or office for immediate use.

NLN Research Journal Publishes Themed Edition Featuring Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education

Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 26, 2014

Nursing Education Perspectives, the NLN’s respected bimonthly peer-reviewed research journal was invited to publish initial findings from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education (EIN) Initiative. EIN, based at the Center for State Health Policy at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, was launched in 2008 in response to the growing shortage of nurses and nurse educators. Currently in its third grant cycle, the initiative supports evaluations of interventions that expand teaching capacity or promote faculty recruitment and retention in schools of nursing. So far, 12 grants of up to $ 300,000 have been awarded.

An important corollary to the EIN mission is the dissemination of evidence-based success in strategic interventions that may be widely replicated. “As a respected forum for presentation of evidence-based best practices and issues that are key to excellence in nursing education, Nursing Education Perspectives is a natural fit for these latest EIN findings,” noted NEP editor Joyce Fitzpatrick, PhD, RN, FAAN. “We made certain to expedite our peer-review process to respond to the foundation’s and the NLN’s shared interest in the timely publication of this research.”

Added NLN CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN: “The NLN was delighted to be asked by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to showcase the groundbreaking EIN scholarship. Understanding how best to increase recruitment and retention of nurse educators dovetails with the NLN mission to promote excellence in nursing education to build a strong and diverse nursing workforce to advance the health of our nation and the global community.”

The six manuscripts accepted for publication, following NEP’s peer-review, are:

— “Increasing Faculty Capacity: Findings from an Evaluation of Simulation Clinical Teaching,” Hila Richardson, Lloyd Goldsamt, Janie Simmons, and Mattia Gilmartin; New York University

— “Dedicated Education Unit: Student Perspectives,” Vicki Nishioka, Michael Coe, Makoto Hanita, and Susan Moscato; University of Portland, OR

— “Dedicated Education Unit: Nurse Perspectives on their Clinical Teaching Role,” Vicki Nishioka, Michael Coe, Makoto Hanita, and Susan Moscato; University of Portland, OR

— “Building the Evidence for Dedicated Education Unit Sustainability and Partnership Success,” Joann Mulready-Shick and Kathleen Flanagan; University of Massachusetts, Boston

— “An Evaluation of State-based Support for Service Programs Targeting Nurse Faculty,” Jennifer Craft-Morgan, Don Pathman, Marilyn Oermann, T. R. Konrad, and Brandy Farrar; Georgia State University and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

— “Evaluation of the First Two Years: A State-Wide Consortium’s Adoption of a Unified Nursing Curriculum,” Alice Tse, Victoria Niederhauser, John Steffen, Lois Magnussen, and Nova Morrisette; University of Hawaii at Manoa

In his guest editorial introducing the reported findings, “Effectiveness of Strategies Addressing the Nurse Faculty Shortage,” Michael Yedidia, PhD, national program director of EIN and professor at Rutgers University Center for State Health Policy, highlighted several trends in academic nursing that gave rise to the need to create and test specific interventions. Dr. Yedidia then issued a call to action to schools of nursing to join EIN in expanding the project’s scope.

Supporting written material is provided for the online as well as live training sessions, and a DVD is provided for self-paced offline learning and reference. Specifically, participants will receive a comprehensive manual containing information on the evidence-based practice of Pilates in rehabilitation (including references to current research articles, types of exercises, effectiveness of Pilates, comparison of Pilates with other forms of exercises, and the use of Pilates in various patient populations) and a professionally filmed and mastered interactive DVD with online access.

This OT PT Pilates CME course will provide a deeper understanding of how to properly perform and instruct patients on Pilates techniques. This understanding forms the basis for integrating Pilates principles, fundamental and core stabilization exercises into your specific rehab programs and real life patient related functional activities. Upon completion of this course, the clinician will be able to immediately integrate their knowledge in the clinical setting to provide a Pilates-based treatment program to the orthopedic, neurologic, and/or geriatric patient for improved functional outcomes.
