Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) or domestic violence is extremely common affecting women, and sometimes men, of all ages, ethnicities and sexual preferences. IPV can have physical, mental and emotional short and long term consequences. Effective screening and assessment is key in identifying the abuse and supporting the victim to access resources to interrupt the cycle of violence. This course provides a toolkit with detailed information for public health providers to become more knowledgeable in screening, documentation and management practices and patient resources for domestic abuse. The toolkit was developed using California Health and Safety codes and reporting laws and can be revised to reflect the codes and laws of a given state.

This short course is just for bosses (and those who want to understand them). Decades ago, bosses told employees what to do and employees did what they were told. That model of leadership isn't as effective today. This short training looks at four ways bosses can have influence. The four ways are called the four "I's." You can put them to use in on your job today. The four "I's" were designed to enable managers to help employees go above and beyond instead of merely completing tasks that managers assign. This approach to leadership helps your work group develop their ability to respond to future tasks and needs.

This simple tool will help you think about your own performance and how you can improve it. It will help you pinpoint what you may want to ask your employer for as well as what you may ask of yourself. It is useful for troubleshooting and also for planning. This tool has six parts. The first three that you'll learn about are usually under the control of the employer (they are things you may want to ask your employer for). The last three are under your control. We'll take a quick look at all six.

With the use of current technology we know more than ever that breastfeeding is about more than nutrition.  Technological advances in nanotechnology, epigenetics, ultrasound, infant brain imaging and the human microbiome have given us critical information.  With all the knowledge that we have, practices need to change as well.  Changes in simple practices can lead to increased success for women with breastfeeding.  This training presents a case study highlighting areas of practice where interventions can improve breastfeeding success.

This training session will analyze how we commonly frame disability in society and examine how these frames influence professional practice. We will discuss language, media and design and the power of each to shape the disability experience. By analyzing existing systems, we will discuss concepts of universal design and identify ways for participants to increase access by removing the barriers that exclude individuals from participation. Finally, we will review the resources available on campus to faculty, staff and students through the Disability Resource Center. The presenter will also facilitate a question and answer period directly following the presentation.

Asthma is life-threatening when students do not have the tools to manage symptoms effectively. The stock albuterol inhaler program provides an albuterol inhaler to be kept in the school health office (e.g., stock albuterol) in the event that a student is experiencing respiratory distress and does not have access to their own rescue inhaler. This e-learning course provides mandatory training for school personnel designated to administer the stock albuterol inhaler.
