Abstract :

Nurses are the medium through which we carry out healthcare services. Their education is a continuous process, not simply because of the regulations of the health authorities, but for better patient outcomes. As such, it is imperative for nursing educators and managers to have customized in-service programs for their nursing staff. A sample, generic, in-service program must include the latest in the field of nursing education and procedures. Furthermore, it is proposed that each in-service program include the following educational material: (1) Assisting patients with heart disease, (2) Basic nutrition; particularly for obese and diabetic patients, (3) Behavior management, (4) Skin care; for patients who are bed-bound, (5) Depression and anxiety, (6) Diabetes; as the UAE has the highest rates of DM-2, as per the World Health Organization, (7) Dementia care, (8) Elder abuse and neglect, (9) End of life care, (10) Infection control, (11) Lifting and transferring, (12) Malnutrition, (13) Mental illness, (14) Proper oxygen therapy, (15) Psychosocial care, (16) Understanding pain and (17) Cultural diversity. Those proposed in-service programs are applicable to the nursing field. They ought to be conducted on annual basis and certificates of completion must be issued. These programs can be done as an adjunct to the required CME for maintaining the license, or they maybe CME certified in-service courses.
