AAOHN to Host Webcast on Liver Wellness

The American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, Inc. is hosting a 1-hour webcast titled Liver Wellness: An Effective Approach to Hepatitis Prevention and Management on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2008, at 2 p.m. EST. Participants will receive 1.0 CNE credit. The webcast will be conducted by internationally recognized lecturer Thelma King Thiel, RN, chairman and CEO of the Hepatitis Foundation International, and Corinna Dan, BSN, MPH, a registered nurse and former coordinator for the City of Chicago's Hepatitis C Program.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to describe five life-preserving functions of the liver using easy-to-relate-to analogies; describe how drugs and viruses can damage the liver; identify types of viral hepatitis, transmission, symptoms, and treatments; and identify risk behaviors related to modes of transmission of viral hepatitis. Participants also will learn non-threatening communication techniques to motivate individuals to assess their own risk behaviors, seek testing and evaluation of their liver status, avoid liver damaging activities, and participate in their own healthcare.

The registration fee for this webcast is $50 for AAOHN members who register online, and $60 for members registering via fax or by mail. For non-members, the registration fee is $75 if registering online, and $85 if registering via fax or by mail. Faxed registration forms must be received by 5:00 p.m. ET, Monday, Jan. 7, 2008.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
