Upcoming Continuing Professional Development Opportunities with Upstate AHEC

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.

To register for this course or for more information go to www.UpstateAHEC.org or call Bennie Pettit at 864-349-1162.

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.

Update: SC AHEC Regional Centers Pivot Continuing Education Programs Online

We know that even through unprecedented times, health professionals still need continuing professional development to maintain certifications and licensure. To continue to be able to offer education to the professionals in their communities, the regional South Carolina AHEC centers quickly began transitioning scheduled continuing professional development programs from in-person events to webinars. Here are some brief highlights: Lowcountry AHEC worked with longtime instructor Francine Muscarella, LMSW, LCSW, to offer her already scheduled courses The Art of Leading and Are You Running Out of Time? as webinars to professionals statewide. The transition allowed a multidisciplinary group of attendees to still participate in learning opportunities without leaving their homes. “Huge thanks and shout out,” remarked one attendee, “to all those involved to take this from an in-person class to transition it on short notice to a webinar.” Likewise, Mid-Carolina AHEC cancelled all in-p
