When Connie Merritt, RN, BSN, PHN presents the above topics, she is able to complete your CEU requirements using the following justifications:
• A key recommendation from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Initiative on the Future of Nursing is to ensure that nurses engage in learning the communication skills needed to provide care for diverse populations, which directly impact clinical outcomes.
• The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reported nurses experiencing stress and burnout may not be able to perform efficiently and effectively because their physical and cognitive resources may be reduced; this suboptimal performance may affect patient care and its safety.
