This course combines Perinatal Issues, Violence Prevention and Awareness, and Women’s Health Issues as you learn about the well-being of women, women’s rights, and empowerment.
Certificate in Perinatal Issues:
The Certificate in Perinatal Issues is a multidisciplinary educational experience designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of individuals who provide care and support for childbearing women, newborns, and families. The demand for knowledgeable providers to meet the needs of this population is dramatically increasing; new jobs are being developed and new services created. Health professionals who work with this population will need continuing professional education to gain a broad understanding of this specialized area of care and to stay current with emerging trends.
Certificate in Violence Prevention and Awareness:
Every year across the globe, millions of individuals are affected by violence. Healthcare professionals are a first line of defense in recognizing the signs of violence and supporting violence prevention. In this certificate program, you’ll examine the various instances of violence that you may encounter in your work as a medical professional, including workplace violence, domestic violence, elder and child abuse, and pediatric abusive head trauma (also known as “shaken baby syndrome”). By the end of this course, you’ll have the information you need to respond to and help prevent these forms of violence.
Certificate in Women’s Health Issues:
Women represent over half of the global population. While women have a longer life expectancy than men in most every country, they don’t necessarily get to enjoy healthier lives. Millions of women suffer from health issues each year throughout the world—health issues that would not affect them if they were men. Women and their health issues have traditionally been neglected both nationally and globally. When women’s health concerns, women’s rights, and empowerment are made a priority, the result is immense improvements in the health and well-being of women and their children on a global scale.
