Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Introduction 

Our Educational Series

Phase 1: Anti-Psychotic Drug Reduction Issues

In this series of modules, a thorough review of anti-psychotic medications, their use and misuse are covered for physicians, nurse practitioners, directors of nursing, administrators, nurses and nurses’ aids. No one is left out of this very important topic.

Phase 2: Advanced Geriatric Practice

In this series, the learner experienced in geriatric care is challenged to take on a higher level of skills and knowledge through courses designed to improve outcomes in and outside of the nursing homes of Texas.

Phase 3: Transition To Practice

In this series we offer an array of educational activities for the new nurse needing support and guidance as she moves into long term care and geriatric practice. This series of modules will also be useful to the nurse who wants to move into gerontology from another practice setting.

Phase 4: Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities

In this series of modules healthcare providers learn about the challenges that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities face while aging and in long-term care.

Phase 6: Social Determinants Of Health With Age C.E. approved

In this series we offer ways to understand the meanings of social determinants of health. We bring in nursing experts across the state and nation to help dissect these concepts while applying them to nursing practice. Residents and citizens of Texas are offered ways on how they may improve health outcomes for ALL Texans.

Phase 7: Mental Health With Aging and Severe Mental Illness

This course is under development. Check back regularly for more updates. The link below will take you to the completed modules.
