careLearning is a nonprofit organization formed more than a decade ago which is owned and operated by more than 40 state hospital associations including NJHA. These associations work in partnership to offer a comprehensive workforce education management solution to member hospitals with an affordable price and convenient online platform.

Over 280 hospitals and healthcare organizations nationally use careLearning for their employee education needs. Virtually all of these organizations offer the On-Line Health and Safety Compliance Training Series to their employees to meet their Joint Commission/OSHA requirements.

careLearning provides:

  • A powerful underlying database which contains data captured from employee education activity. The database resides at the hospital location and not at careLearning.  Participating hospitals maintain ownership and control of this data.
  • Capability to track online activity as well as in-service education sessions.
  • A utility which easily updates the database with changes in payroll so new staff additions and deletions are accurately updated within the database.
  • The ability to develop and publish “private courses” using hospital-specific content. Virtually all participating hospitals utilize this money-saving benefit.  
  • Ready access with no long-term contractual commitments.

Sexual assault and abuse of elders living in nursing homes and other senior living environments is a significant issue that often goes unreported. Residents are more physically and cognitively frail than ever before and are increasingly vulnerable to this type of abuse. Residents, families and staff often do not know what to do if they suspect sexual abuse has occurred. This program will focus on the prevention and detection of sexual abuse, the many ethical concerns related to sexual abuse, best practices in training and advocacy on behalf of residents, liability and regulatory concerns and strategies for risk management.

Among the most fundamental indicators of a nation’s health status are perinatal morbidity and mortality. The New Jersey Perinatal Quality Collaborative (NJPQC) – a network of OB hospitals, perinatal care clinicians and other providers, public health professionals, maternal and child organizations and other key stakeholders – is working to address some of New Jersey’s most critical perinatal health issues, such as having one of the highest C-section rates in the nation and ranked 35th in maternal mortality in the country (11.2 per 10,000 births). Thirty-seven women die, on average, for every 100,000 live births in New Jersey, compared with 20 nationally. African-American women in New Jersey are also five times more likely than their white counterparts to die from pregnancy-related complications.

The NJPQC is embarking on a second year, working with its partners and participating hospitals to test, evaluate and spread best practices – through comprehensive provider and community education – to improve the quality of perinatal care, improve population-level outcomes in maternal and infant health, and reduce disparities.

This full day conference will focus on the efforts of the NJPQC and its workgroups, including the current QI projects: NJ AIM obstetrics hemorrhage and severe hypertension bundle implementation and the NTSV C-Section reduction initiative. Teams that attend will also learn about strategies, tools, and tactics for sustaining these efforts at their facility from best practice hospitals in New Jersey and leaders that have implemented this work in other states.

The Healthcare Ethics Committee Symposium is designed to address the vital role of healthcare ethics committees and their unique responsibilities, including education, clinical ethics consultation and policy development and review. Using case studies, published materials, institutional policies, role plays and personal experiences, the faculty and attendees will explore issues that typically require ethical analysis and resolution. These issues include informed consent and refusal, decisional capacity and decision making by and for patients, truth telling and confidentially, care at the beginning and end of life, justice and access to healthcare services, and organizational ethics.

Ethics committees come in all shapes, sizes and stages of development; their members bring varying skill sets, knowledge bases and levels of experience. Because the program’s central focus will be skills and strategies to enhance healthcare ethics committees as organizational resources, this intensive two-day symposium is essential for anyone who chairs, serves on or supports healthcare ethics committees
