136514| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Clinical Aspects of Primary Headache Disorders|

The most common disorders of the nervous system are headache disorders. With the World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledging that such disorders have been ‘underestimated, under-recognized and under-treated throughout the world’, it is crucial to be able to identify and diagnose the symptoms accurately.

Dr Dominic Paviour, Consultant Neurologist, joins us for this interactive webinar discussing the primary headache syndromes and how to identify and manage them. 

Dr Paviour will be using his wealth of experience in the neurological field to inform his talk and ensure that delegates leave with comprehensive knowledge of how to deal with a range of headache disorders.

Using case histories and group discussion, we will be understanding in-depth syndromes such as migraines, tension-type headaches and cluster headaches. Learn how to recognise the presentation with tests and examination techniques, accurately diagnose them, and know what to do when you spot a red flag.

Managing headaches can often be a complex and difficult task, but with the right strategies in place your patients can drastically improve their quality of life. We will be delving into the medications, lifestyle modifications and complimentary therapies available currently. Considering new medical therapies, including Ajovy and Aimovig for migraines, we will also be weighing up the pros and cons of each. 

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Speaker: Dr Dominic Paviour, Consultant Neurologist

136513| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Long Covid Syndrome – Tackling the Respiratory & Cardiac Symptoms|

Over a year has passed since Covid-19 was designated a pandemic. During this time there have been considerable advances in our knowledge of treating acute Covid, and vaccine therapy has been a huge success. However, many patients who contract Covid-19 have persistent symptoms which can last for several weeks or months. This multi-system condition has been termed Long Covid Syndrome and the management is proving to be highly challenging.

Bringing together cardiology and respiratory issues, our 3 speakers who run Long Covid clinics will be exploring the latest guidance on the diagnosis and management of Long Covid Syndrome. This is a rapidly evolving area and it is important that healthcare professionals are up-to-date with the current knowledge we have about the condition.

Consultant Respiratory Physician, Dr Vasilis Kouranos, and Consultant Physician in Respiratory and General Medicine, Dr Himender Makker, will be tackling the respiratory problems which Long Covid can induce. They will be examining the definition of Long Covid and its signs and symptoms, including persistent breathlessness, chest pain and sleep disturbance, as well as diagnostic approaches. Following that, we will be discussing best management strategies for long- and short-term patients.

Dr Rakesh Sharma is a highly experienced Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, a tertiary cardiac centre and teaching hospital in London. His expertise includes the management of heart failure, arrhythmias and hypertension which are skills that are particularly relevant for treating patients with Long Covid Syndrome. He will be using this to inform his talk and teach us how the cardiac system is affected and how his Long Covid clinic can help.

With symptoms that many patients are still struggling with over a year into the pandemic, this is not one to be missed!

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Speakers: Consultant Respiratory Physician, Dr Vasilis Kouranos, Consultant Physician in Respiratory and General Medicine, Dr Himender Makker, Consultant Cardiologist, Dr Rakesh Sharma

136512| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Virtual and In-Person Onboarding Your New Hire: Policies, Practices, and Processes|

Overview:

We're on a new world now creating new challenges in the way we do our work including how we welcome and engage our new hires virtually.

We have new challenges now with the pandemic - how do we onboard a new employee virtually? Onboarding virtually creates new opportunities that we may continue to use even when the pandemic is not as much of a threat. Whether you call it Onboarding, Induction, Enculturation, or New Employee Orientation (NEO), the process used to welcome and train your new employees while capturing their excitement of a new job and reducing their new job jitters is critical to their success. Conducting the process virtually just adds a bit more innovation in providing the same information.

NEO is not a one day event, but rather a process that begins after their acceptance of the job and extends through the first year of their employment. Studies show that the new arrival's primary concerns are three things my job, my boss, and my coworkers.

Dealing with new employee jitters and uncertainties is a high priority in orientation programs. How long this mental mayhem lasts may depend a great deal on employee orientation. Onboarding is a strategy and a process that extends well beyond their first day on the job. It is a critical process to get the new hire off and running in their new environment - their new virtual environment, their new virtual position, and with new virtual colleagues enabling them to enjoy their work and their employer.

Onboarding needs to include fun activities, using “buddies” to streamline the new hire's experience, beginning from the point of the job offer. All of these efforts can be done virtually. It is one of the most important elements an employer should invest in.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Sample checklists for the manager/supervisor, HR, and the Buddy are provided
  • Tips on orienting the virtual employee
  • How to evaluate your Onboarding process
  • To discuss importance of Checklists for what to accomplish the first day, first week, first month, and the first 90 days
  • To list suggested lists and topics for the onboarding portal
  • To examine onboarding portal systems
  • To Tips on how to select and utilize a Buddy
  • Orientation Evaluation forms for the new hire, HR, the buddy, and management
  • Tips on the manager-new hire “expectations” discussion


Learning Objectives:

  • To describe onboarding tactics for virtual new hires
  • To discuss the intricacies of onboarding the new hire including such things as getting them their new computer, technology, and having a virtual lunch, and dealing with I-9s
  • To identify HR, the supervisor, and the Buddy's roles in welcoming and training the new employee to a virtual environment
  • To discuss the new employee's role in her or his orientation
  • To differentiate between the orientation to the organization and the orientation to the department
  • To assess, develop, implement and evaluate your Onboarding strategy
  • To examine virtual Onboarding best practices
  • To assess, design, and develop, implement, and evaluate your department's NEO strategy

136511| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Coaching Skills for Managers: Tools to get the Most from your Team!|

Overview:

Today's leaders recognize the need to maximize productivity in their team and that can only happen when employees are committed and engaged.

It's no surprise that actively engaged employees are 20 to 40 percent more productive in the workplace than those that aren't engaged.

In order to have a team of high performing and successful employees, you need to know the best techniques to engage and motivate them. Not only does it make your job easier, coaching greatly improves employee performance when done correctly.

While once considered a "soft" skill, coaching for high performance is now recognized as an effective method that produces better decision-making skills, improved project management, and increased performance while lowering overall turnover.

Why you should Attend:Many of us came to our roles and positions in life/work with great technical training and experience. It is what made us promotable into leadership roles. But many of us are not very good coaches, we think we are because we are good at doing the work, but it turns out we are not very good teachers, instructors, coaches.

Not our fault, just not our innate gift. Like some people are not the best at performing the tasks or even playing the game (think of any physical activity) but are terrific coaches! Why or How does that happen and make them successful in that arena?

Most outstanding coaches have 4 talents: The understanding of the technical requirements, terrific observational skills, communication and relationship building capabilities. And they can link those skills and abilities with the mental and emotional requirements for improving individual and team performance. Do they hold people accountable - Yes!

If you want to improve your team’s performance or that of individuals, even yourself, then perhaps you will find a missing piece in this webinar or an area where as a “Coach” you too can improve. Coaches need Coaches!

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Help you understand how to tap into employee commitment
  • Unravel what engages and disengages employees
  • Detail the 6 key skills necessary for effective coaching
  • Share a useable 5-step model for conducting a coaching session
  • Clarify the differences between coaching, mentoring, teaching, and directing
  • Provide over 44 questions to drive action and accountability


Who Will Benefit:Anyone who is either by title or designation expected to coach others, or those who would like to gain further understanding and experiences with this vital role of leadership.

Structural Repair of Historic Buildings with Ian Hume

Location of course: West Dean College of Arts and Conservation, Chichester, West Sussex, PO18 0QZ
Dates of course: 7 - 10 June 2021

About:
This course is of special value to those who wish to gain a new perspective in applying engineering principles to the conservation of historic structures.

Various permanent repair methods which might be applied to historic buildings are discussed and there will be debate about the merits of hidden repairs against more obvious repairs. Not all historic buildings are as hazardous as they sometimes seem and we will discuss alternatives to the carrying out of repairs to apparently unstable structures.

The programme covers inspecting, monitoring and repair works ranging from pointing and grouting to tying and underpinning. It also includes practical exercises, demonstrations and trials of equipment and remedial monitoring techniques. Use will be made of case studies to illustrate various points, discussion will be encouraged and there will be opportunity for discussion in small groups to consider specific problems. There will also be a visit to the Weald and Downland Living Museum.

The course will be of value to architects, conservation officers, masons, carpenters and others involved in conservation, as well as to engineers.

136480| Oryon Develop| Webinar: The Menopause & Perimenopause: Physical & Mental Health Effects|

Is there a link between hormones and mood? What is the menopause, the perimenopause and their effects? What kind of Hormone Replacement Therapies (HRTs) are available? How can we help patients who experience depression and mood problems?

These are just a few of the questions that Dr Monica Lascar, Functional Medicine Practitioner and Sexual Health Consultant, will be answering over the course of this interactive webinar. Join us on Tuesday 6th July to enhance your knowledge on helping the whole patient.

Dr Lascar sets out to demonstrate that mental health is just as important as the patient’s physical health when it comes to the menopause and perimenopause.

She will be refreshing your knowledge on menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms both physically and mentally. Understanding hormones, we will be exploring whether there is an evidence-based link with mood, looking into the effects on our neuro-steroids and neurotransmitters. Your patients may experience reproductive depression or mood problems such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) or postnatal issues, and we will be establishing why this is and how we can help them.

We will be outlining a brief history of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and delving into the current options for your female patients.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

136479| Multiple Locations| Pharmacoepidemiology & Pharmacovigilance|

Postgraduate Professional Development Short Course (30 credits)

The global pandemic of COVID-19 has focused huge attention on the importance of pharmacoepidemiology. Speculation about the role of prescribed drugs such as ACE inhibitors, NSAIDs and hydroxychloroquine, followed by often poorly conducted studies of association with COVID-19, has caused anxiety globally. Development of Coronavirus vaccines will result in the need for intensive surveillance of subsequent safety profiles internationally. Having the skills to conduct and interpret such studies to a high standard has never been more important.

The global challenge of maximising drug safety yet maintaining public confidence has become increasingly complex. Health authorities are tasked to provide quality care while managing a growing drug budget. Regulatory authorities must balance the potential benefits of new drugs with the perception of their potential harm.

This Postgraduate Professional Development Short Course addresses the need for well-informed professionals to work in all areas related to the assessment of drug safety and the management of risks and benefits of medications, including vaccines.

This course is run in collaboration with University of London, and applications must be made via the University of London website.

Course objectives

This course aims to equip you with a basic understanding of the concepts and practice of pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance, and to apply these skills to a currently unresolved drug safety issue. 

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding and critically evaluate issues surrounding the risks and benefits of drug use in humans including the cause, manifestations and consequences of adverse drug effects (ADEs), the manner in which these are detected and monitored, and the related historic and legal frameworks
  • Understand and critically compare fundamental statistical, economic and epidemiological concepts and methods
  • Understand and critically reflect upon important pharmacoepidemiological concepts and methods and how these methods can be applied to specific drug issues
  • Assess and critically analyse the results of pharmacoepidemiological studies, including critical appraisal of the study question, study design, methods and conduct, statistical analyses and interpretation
  • Understand how new medicines are assessed for their cost-effectiveness as well as efficacy and safety, before being recommended for use
  • Apply the techniques and approaches covered in the taught element of the course, plus your own experience, to evaluate issues presented to you in the format of a project, and where relevant, develop recommendations for the best option or options

Key course topics

Pharmacoepidemiology - you will learn about the fundamentals of pharmacoepidemiology, its conduct, practical uses and limitations in determining the effects of medications in large groups of people. The statistical basis underpinning pharmacoepidemiology will also be introduced, and you will integrate statistics and epidemiology to gain competence in critically appraising pharmacoepidemiology studies.

Pharmacovigilance - you will be introduced to the key elements of pharmacovigilance and its basis within drug regulation. Within the risk management elements of the course, you will gain insight into how pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance are combined in the investigation of the effects of medicines. Principles will largely be demonstrated within the European legislative context, whilst recognizing these general principles apply more broadly throughout the world.

Health economics - you will be introduced to the fundamental concepts involved in assessing the cost effectiveness of health technologies and methodologies used to assess the health related quality of life. Real world examples will be used to illustrate concepts.

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at personnel involved in the safe use of medicines, particularly in developed countries. This includes those working (or intending to work) in: the pharmaceutical industry who are involved in drug development, licensing and surveillance; regulatory bodies who are involved in licensing and surveillance; the health service who are involved in drug policy; and health policy decision-making agencies.
