ATSDR Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Registry Online Training Module
Course Number: WB1774
This project will provide enhancement to the current Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) website, providing a "one stop" for current ALS educational information for primary health care providers, neurologists, those responsible for medical coding, and patients.
The launching of the ALS Registry will happen soon and this training module is needed to educate the health care providers so they can inform their patients on the requirements for registering and participating in the program.
The Mergener formula was used to determine the amount of credits being offered for ALS. The Mergener formula takes into account the number of words, and the number of posttest questions to determine the total minutes so that the appropriate credits can be calculated and awarded.
TARGET AUDIENCE: Our primary target audience is primary health providers and other health professionals involved in preventing/mitigating exposure to hazardous substances and/or related health promotion activities.
PREREQUISITES: A basic knowledge of medicine or related basics of human health promotion at a professional level is desired.
