SPA and Online Education
If you have not checked out AANA’s new online education, please do so: AANALearn. I’d like to specifically highlight the “Wellness Catalog” that you’ll find along with other learning programs. Within the wellness catalog you’ll find four programs that contain content from the 2007 SPA Workshop. Each of these is worth 1 CE credit through the AANA Education Department:
- Intervention and Treatment for the Addicted Nurse Anesthetist
- State Peer Advisor Role & Balancing Ethics
- Substance Abuse Policies for Staff & Care for the Chemically Dependent Patient
- The Current State of Drug Misuse by CRNAs & Addiction: It’s a Brain Disease
A View Point on Relapse
Peer Assistance: a True Story
The Peer Assistance Program
The Peer Assistance Program is here to help CRNAs with drug and alcohol problems. For those in recovery, please visit health.groups.yahoo.com/group/airforsobriety/. Also, the AANA Peer Assistance Directory gives you information about peer assistance around the country. Please visit the AANA Peer Assistance Homepage for extensive information. Another link for information is http://www.georgianurses.org/nurse_advocate.htm.
