What nurses do and don't like about their work…reputable hospitals use questionable advertising ploys…are you at risk for occupational asthma?…and more.

A new division of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) will offer health care providers education and AFA-sanctioned qualification to improve the care of those with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.

The new division, called Dementia Care Professionals of America, offers programs tailored to professionals providing all levels of dementia care. To complete a program, students watch DVDs aimed at understanding dementia and providing safe and effective care. For more information, contact the AFA by calling 1-866-AFA-8484 or visiting http://www.careprofessionals.org.
