  • Oral Health Nursing Education: Inter-professional Oral Health Faculty Toolkit

    Oral Health Nursing Education: Inter-professional Oral Health Faculty Toolkit

    The Inter-professional Oral Health Faculty Toolkit, developed by the Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice program, is "going live" at www.ohnep.org! The toolkit is an innovative web-based open source product intended to facilitate integration of oral-systemic health content and clinical competencies into nurse practitioner and midwifery curricula. Based on the IPEC Competencies, the HRSA Inter-professional Oral Health Core Competencies and the NONPF or ACNM Core Competencies, the Inter-professional Oral Health Faculty Toolkit is an ideal "turnkey" resource for faculty and clinicians to use to "weave" oral health and its links to overall health into curriculum and clinical practice, thereby addressing a vital population health issue. The toolkit will be updated on a regular basis to include and provide for faculty and clinicians the most current guidelines, teaching-learning activities and publications to develop robust interprofessional oral health competencies for nurse practitioner and midwifery students.

  • Could She Have Coronary Artery Disease? Don’t Ignore Her Mild Symptoms

    Could She Have Coronary Artery Disease? Don’t Ignore Her Mild Symptoms

    Many women think heart disease is a man’s problem, but we know better. More women than men die each year from coronary artery disease (CAD).

    One reason CAD has become so deadly in women is because early symptoms are often overlooked. Women typically experience milder and less obvious symptoms, like heartburn and back pain, that can be harder to diagnose. Chest pain and shortness of breath, which can be reliable signs of CAD in men, are not common symptoms in women.

    Help your patients easily identify symptoms of CAD with our CAD Symptoms Checklist.

    NPWH is a proud partner of GoSpreadtheWord.com. Join the fight against coronary artery disease and empower women to be #HeartSmart at Facebook.com/GoSpreadtheWord.
