Quantum Units Education: New CEU Courses

Supporting Service Providers in Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect

Focusing on protective factors is critical and sorely needed for the prevention of child maltreatment and promotion of child and family well-being.  This CEU course provides information to help service providers and others concerned about the health and well-being of children to understand child abuse and neglect, its effects, and what each person can do to address it when it occurs.

Environmental Design for People with Dementia Nearing End of Life

The design of environments in which people with dementia live should be understandable, reinforce personal identity, and maintain their ability.  This CEU course explores the view of people with dementia, family carers, and professionals on what aspects of the physical environment would be important to support good quality of life to the very end.

Promoting Best Practice and Safety Through Preprinted Physician Orders

This CEU course explores the potential of preprinted physician orders to improve interdisciplinary integration in care, promote accurate communication, and reduce variation by combining pertinent reminders, safety alerts, and “best practice” into a just-in-time process.

LGBTQ Youth, YMSM and YWSW Who Engage in Survival Sex

This CEU course describes and quantifies the sexual and physical health outcomes among LGBTQ youth, YMSM, and YWSW engaged in survival sex; assesses how many are using and abusing alcohol and drugs; and details youths’ access to and interactions with treatment and service providers.

Principles of Substance Abuse Prevention for Early Childhood

While substance use generally begins during the adolescent years, there are known biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors that contribute to the risks that begin accumulating as early as the prenatal period.  This CEU course provides the specific ways in which early interventions can have positive effects on development and gives an overview of child development from the prenatal period through age 8, along with the factors that either place a child at risk for later substance use or offer protection against that risk.
