Our online training
HRS-U produces training that focuses on the care of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and in persons who are aging. The I/DD population is unlike any other, they have special needs that traditional training rarely covers.
We collaborated with the University of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities with guidance from the Department of Justice to produce a series of eLearn Modules. These online courses address the specific I/DD needs - and we are expanding the library all the time.
The self-paced eLearning courses are filled with videos, interactive exercises and visual aids to constantly engage the student and improve data retention. The result is a student of any education level who can feel empowered to observe, make informed decisions and take action.
The modules were created in Captivate 2017 and target standard Learning Management Systems using SCORM, Moodle, etc.
What is the Fatal Five?
The Fatal Five are five commonly identified causes of preventable death in persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and in persons who are aging.
When recognized early and treated promptly, one can save lives and prevent negative changes in the person's health.
These five conditions are:
- Bowel Obstruction
- Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
HRS has developed an eLearn series covering the subject of The Fatal Five plus two additional, important topics:
- Knowing When to Act
The Fatal Five series has a choice of three courses with their own focus depending on whether you are a DSP, a clinician or a Case Manager. Each module includes easy-to-understand content with illustrations, knowledge checks and scenarios to enhance understanding.
If you support persons with I/DD, you need this information! Taking these courses will give you the ability to recognize early signs and symptoms of these conditions and feel empowered to do something about it!
Our courses have three distinct paths for different personnel: Direct Support, Case Managers and Nurses.
