Tyler, Texas (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
Pedagogy, Inc., a national provider of online continuing education and training courses for nurses and other health care professionals, is excited to introduce our new author Julie Reagan, PhD, JD, MPH. Julie holds a PhD in Management, Policy, and Community Health from the University of Texas Health Science Center, School of Public Health in Houston, Texas. She completed a Masters of Public Health degree from the same university. Dr. Reagan is also an attorney licensed to practice law in New Mexico and Texas (inactive status). She has been practicing law since 1993. She also holds degrees in health education and dental hygiene.
Dr. Reagan’s healthcare consulting practice currently focuses primarily on healthcare-associated infection (HAI) issues. She serves on the New Mexico Healthcare-Associated Infections Committee and the Nevada Safe Injection Practices Coalition. She was also a member of an expert working group that advised the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the development of an HAI Policy Toolkit presenting state policy options to prevent and eliminate HAIs. She currently lives near Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Dr. Reagan’s website “HAI Focus” provides news and information about healthcare-associated infections as well as general information about infection prevention and control.

Pedagogy, Inc. is pleased to announce the new continuing education course authored by Dr. Reagan titled “Preventing and Managing Norovirus in Healthcare Settings”. Norovirus is the predominant cause of acute gastroenteritis, causing both sporadic cases and outbreaks. It is estimated to be the causative agent for over 23 million gastroenteritis cases occurring every year in the U.S. Norovirus gastroenteritis infections commonly occur in healthcare settings. In fact, healthcare institutions, such as hospitals and nursing homes, are the most frequently reported settings for norovirus outbreaks in the United States and other industrialized countries. Due to the high rates of infection, as well as the burden placed on healthcare institutions in caring for ill patients, infection prevention and control of norovirus is extremely important.
This instructional course has been designed primarily for nurses and infection prevention and control practitioners working and caring for patients in healthcare settings. However, other care providers such as epidemiologists, healthcare administrators, environmental services, and other healthcare staff members will also find the course extremely useful. The course is designed to be applicable to all healthcare settings and follows the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest 2011 HICPAC Guideline for the Prevention of Norovirus.

Pedagogy is the art and science of teaching, instruction and training. It is the goal of Pedagogy Inc. to offer the most current course content, at the highest possible quality, using a variety of education methods and strategies.

Through continuing education and self directed professional growth, health care providers are better prepared to deliver quality care to their patients.
Pedagogy Inc. provides individual courses and also has a large corporate clientele who utilize their educational courses for staff training. “Whether we’re educating one nurse or a facility full of nurses, we’re happy to be their chosen educational provider. We pride ourselves on excellent content and customer service,” says Capra Dalton, RN and CEO.
