LHA Transitioning to Online-Only Registrations
The LHA’s Education Department is transitioning to a paperless registration process in the next few weeks; beginning July 1, all registrations for LHA education events will only be offered online, and the fax option will no longer be available.
Seminars and Webinars
More than 70 educational programs, seminars, webinars and workshops are presented each year. These programs focus on a variety of topics of interest to hospitals, some of which include healthcare management, nursing, reimbursement issues, regulatory issues and coding. For more information on education programs or to request specific education content, visit the LHA Education Calendar or call 225-928-0026.
Internet-Based Educational Programs
We are proud to offer careLearning as a member service
and know hospitals will find it a valuable resource for their
educational and staff development needs. careLearning is a non-profit
organization operated by more than 40 state hospital associations and
offers unmatched customer service. Recognizing in today’s ever-changing
marketplace, ensuring that your employees are up-to-date on the latest
training can feel like trying to hit a moving target. careLearning can
help you stay ahead of the game by helping you determine your specific
employee's training needs and offering a top-of-the-line Learning
Management System and online courses to bridge those educational gaps.
Continuing Education Credits
The LHA works to assist members in meeting their continuing education needs by offering credits on many programs for various disciplines. To meet the obligations to award CEUs, the LHA is requiring participants to complete all sessions in there entirety. NOTE: We are unable to award partial CEU credit for education sessions; therefore, participants are required to attend every session of a multi-session series to receive CEUs. Please take this into consideration when registering for educational offerings.
The following are a few of the CEU options available:
- continuing education for coders, medical staff coordinators, pharmacists and physicians.
Proctoring a Course for Continuing Education Credits
If your hospital would like to have multiple staff in a conference room to share in the learning experience of a webinar that the LHA is offering, you must have a designated Proctor in place if anyone desires continuing education credits if offered for the course. The Proctor Agreement outlines the duties
required to meet continuing education criteria. Here are the steps to
- Only the person designated as the “proctor” should register online to participate in the webinar.
- Review the Proctor Process Presentation to better understand the requirements for multiple attendees to receive continuing education credit. Failure to follow the specific proctor process outlined in the above presentation will prevent all attendees other than the registered participant from receiving continuing education credit.
- Download the Proctor Spreadsheet. Complete it, have it signed by participants and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business on the day of the webinar.
Winter Symposium and Summer Conference
Each year, the LHA offers two programs specifically for hospital leadership. The Winter Healthcare Leadership Symposium and the Summer Conference combine opportunities for hospital leadership to learn about the latest healthcare developments, locally and nationally, and to network with colleagues from across the state.
Changing health and healthcare in Louisiana and beyond will require transformational leadership, and an important part of Louisiana hospitals' initiative to re-engineer care is to identify and train leaders for today and tomorrow. Therefore a priority for the LHA is to identify education gaps and work with the appropriate partners to make needed training accessible and affordable to the Louisiana healthcare workforce who will play a leadership role in transforming healthcare. Audiences for various offerings are likely to include hospital executives, trustees, managers, physicians, nurses, members of the community, hospital employees who are natural leaders among their peers, and students who look forward to a career in healthcare. For more information on leadership offerings, visit the LHA Education Calendar or call 225-928-0026.
