New Medic Monthly Course Focuses on DNR Orders for Patients with Terminal Illness
Date:5/26/2010

Kaplan Continuing Education’s new Medic Monthly course provides training to First Responders and Paramedics regarding patients with advanced directives and legal DNR orders.

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 25, 2010 — Kaplan Continuing Education, a leader in online career education, announced today a new Medic Monthly course that focuses on Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders for patients with terminal illnesses. The training for first responders and paramedics will cover how to deal with advanced directives and DNR orders.

After participating in this Medic Monthly continuing education course, the healthcare provider will be better able to:

 
  • Explain some key legal features regarding patients with DNR orders;
  • Understand the risks when caring for a patient with advanced directives;
  • Identify the importance of caring for the family of a patient that has a legal DNR order; and
  • Help a family deal with situations that involve terminal illness.

“Nothing is more difficult than having to stand over a patient and not be able to help revive them. DNR orders are coming up quite frequently with patients that have a terminal illness, and many first responders aren’t sure of how to react in these situations. With the right training, they will be able to care for a family and understand the legal ramifications of advanced directives and honor a person’s last wishes,” said Dr. Steven Katz, KCE Chief Medical Officer.
