Foot Care CEs for Nurses - Fungal Toenails

This is a downloadable video. We will send you a link for the download shortly after receiving your payment. To receive 1.5 Nursing CEs, please also complete the accompanying online test.

In this video, we'll discuss basic and in-depth information regarding nail fungus, misconceptions, available treatments and more. You'll learn more about nail anatomy and physiology so that you can accurately notate and describe where a problem lies, and we'll also talk about the types of procedures that are in the scope of your nursing practice.
We'll talk about what makes patients more prone to developing dermal fungal infections and discuss the two types of fungal toenails, how to spot them, what types of conditions can mimic common fungal infections and which treatments do and don't work. In this segment, you'll also learn more about avulsions, matrixectomies and antibiotics.
This video also discusses a range of common nail findings such as lytic nails, subungual and periungual purulences, lesions, pyogenic granulomas and dystropic nails. You'll learn about the various available approaches to treating these conditions including debridement and oral antifungals, and together we'll analyze how oral antifungals could impact a patient's overall health.
Proper treatment is essential, so we'll examine the effectiveness of topical mycotic nail treatments including tea tree, undecenoic acid and miconazole, and whether or not natural at-home remedies can be effective.
Finally, we'll take an in-depth look at some published clinical trials for laser fungal treatments and learn how we can best equip ourselves with this available knowledge to make the best and most appropriate decisions for our foot care patients.

Reviewer: Ellen Lingelbach from Kamiah, ID  
Excellent.  Being able to acquire the CEU’s I need to renew my license & certification via the internet is much appreciated.  With a busy foot care practice & husband with failing health, it is difficult to attend a conference.  It is really helpful to access the video conference @ my convenience rather than scheduling around the time & date when the video conference is initially presented online.  I expect as soon as you get all the bugs worked out for video conferencing,  you will start charging to access the video conferences-you certainly should.  There is almost always a charge to earn CEU’s, & you deserve to be compensated for the work involved in preparing a CEU presentation.  Besides, it’s much cheaper getting CEU’s via the internet than attending a conference-no travel, no lodging, & no meal costs.
