Through the new partnership with HealthStream, an ANA learning portal provides nurses with a easy site to access a wide range of clinical and professional skills development modules. ‘Lifelong learning is important for registered nurses, and our goal is to offer them leading-edge continuing education that is readily accessible, protected, and convenient. Our requirements for a learning portal and content development partner were rigorous and extensive,’ said ANA CEO Marla J. Weston, PhD, RN. ‘We chosen HealthStream as our online learning partner because of its excellent learning system, deep knowledge of health treatment, and its strong reputation among healthcare organizations. In addition, a series of online course templates will be provided that will enable ANA to develop and self-publish additional courses.With the additional SPIRIT IV cost-effectiveness analysis, we have observed favorable economic data based on the strong clinical outcomes. These findings should prove precious as hospitals evaluate different treatment plans for coronary artery disease patients, said Charles A. Simonton, M.D., FACC, FSCAI, divisional vice president, Medical Affairs, and chief medical officer, Abbott Vascular. The findings are from UAB’s Known reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke research, one of the largest ongoing wellness studies that includes a lot more than 30,200 U.S. Participants. This new report is probably the first to show major racial and regional disparities in stroke rates. It also underscores the need for targeted care and stroke-avoidance strategies in those at greatest risk, said Virginia Howard, Ph.D., a UAB associate professor of epidemiology and a REGARDS co-principal investigator.
