American Physical Therapy Association Clinical Instructor Education & Credentialing Program
Upstate AHEC is collaborating with the Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Greenville Technical College to offer an American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Clinical Instructor Education and Credentialing Program on April 22 and 23 at the Benson Campus of Greenville Technical College in Greer. This program is recognized by the APTA as a clinical instructor education and credentialing program (CIECP) and is designed for those interested in or involved with clinical education, especially clinical instructors, center coordinators of clinical education, and academic coordinators of clinical education.
Outcomes of the CIECP are measured through a credentialing assessment center for physical therapy providers. Participants apply information from the CIECP in six simulated situations. Upon receiving a passing score in each station in the assessment center, candidates will receive a credentialed clinical instructor certificate from the APTA. The instructor Kristen Mason, PT, DPT, is a credentialed clinical trainer recognized by the APTA.

Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Forensic Nurse Training Seminar
Upstate AHEC will sponsor a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Forensic Nurse Training Seminar on May 2 through 6. This training seminar will teach interested emergency room nurses, OB-GYN nurses, and nurse practitioners how to better care for their patients by recognizing, collecting and preserving evidence, interviewing victims and linking them to vital community resources for follow-up. This nationally recognized training seminar is an intensive 40-hour didactic class. Lectures by leading experts in their respective fields will discuss the forensic investigation from trauma to trial. The training will include both a written exam and a practical return demonstration component. There is also a post-training clinical requirement, designed to familiarize the forensic nurse with the resources available in their community. Ample time will be given for completion of these requirements.
For more information about the upcoming SANE Training Seminar call 864-349-1160 or visit the Upstate AHEC website at www.upstateahec.org
