Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 7, 2006 -- The Maryland Nurses Association and The National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. have approved Complementary Therapies & Cancer Care, an interactive online continuing education course, for 25 hours of CE credit and 25 CECH (Continuing Education Contact Hours). Following the rules of reciprocity, nurses and health educators throughout the United States will receive approved credit hours to meet their state nursing license requirements.
The course, Complementary Therapies & Cancer Care, is divided into 11 modules. Health care professionals can opt for the approach or information they need: individual and institutional practice, professional and lay cancer caregivers, multicultural and multiethnic approaches to nontraditional medicine, and full discussions of the efficacy and safety of the major complementary therapies.
Using the practice-based scenarios of Complementary Therapies & Cancer Care, nurses and health educators hear and visualize problems, read text supported by reference links and key points, and then test themselves on each interactive scenario with a multiple-choice question format that tailors feedback to the users' responses. Research shows that practice-based learning engages professional users at their level of expertise and at their own comfortable pace.
Complementary Therapies & Cancer Care was developed under Phase I and Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Complementary Therapies & Cancer Care is designed to provide health care providers with medically sound, evidence-based information on the use of complementary therapies by patients with cancer.
