Course Summary

Course: WB2551
CE Expiration: 02/19/2019, 11:59 PM ( ET )
Available CE: CME, CNE, CEU, CPH, CHES

The Story of Health: Learning/Developmental Disabilities is one module in The Story of Health which conveys complex concepts about multiple influences on health through a family reunion scenario, allowing stories to emerge about family members with a range of diseases, which we will explore from a case study perspective. This storyline allows for geographic distribution including family members from rural, suburban, and city locales, as well as for ethnic diversity via marriage, adoption, etc. Each story reveals the constellation of genetics and environmental circumstances that might affect the particular disease (in this case learning/developmental disabilities), and brings in the latest available science. An introduction describes the ecological approach to health and its many variables. The stories are enhanced by a variety of media including sidebars, pop-up boxes, illustrations, graphics, videos and links to additional resources and key journal references. The course is designed to enhance knowledge competence of the primary health care provider in the assessment and management of patients overexposed or potentially overexposed to learning/developmental disabilities to prevent and/or mitigate exposure related adverse health effects.
