Pain Management Online Course (1 CEU)
May 26 2016
Online Programs
One out of three Americans suffer from chronic pain. Think about that for a minute. You, me, your partner, your friends, your family, your colleagues, your clients. We are all at risk and many are already suffering. Advances in medicine, longer life spans and an aging population only make the challenges all the more important. Chronic pain can be disabling, detrimental to functioning and at the very least, distracting.  How do we treat it? Do opiates help? Why would the Michigan Legislature pass a law establishing a “right to adequate pain relief”? This one hour course will begin to answer these questions. Research will be cited to help wade through the myriad of “treatments”. Traditional medicine, complementary and alternative medicine, psycho- social methods and other approaches will be presented. Specific techniques will be reviewed. Participants will be encouraged to apply the concepts both personally and professionally. And finally, not only will this course meet the requirement for “one hour of pain management education every three years”, but it will also help you understand where the requirement came from. Pending a passing post-test score, a certificate will be e-mailed to you.

Ethics Online Course (5 CEUs)
May 26 2016
Online Programs
This course is comprised of two modules with the first focusing on Ethical Social Work Practice and second on The Regulatory Process.  The course is also divided into 14 parts designed to assist participants in managing completion of the course at an individual pace. Module one focuses on licensure, the Public Health Code, and the code of ethics, exploring causes of ethical violations, describing the slippery slope model, and following with the challenges that social workers face.  Development of the social worker is then identified in Module two, followed by risk factors and examples of excuses often voiced by social workers who have been sanctioned for violating the Public Health Code. This is an online continuing education credit hour course that can be completed at your leisure in the comfort of your own home! It is as simple as watching the presentation, completing a post-test followed by an evaluation and paying the fee. Pending a passing post-test score, a certificate will be e-mailed to you.  Visit our website to complete this online course http://socialwork.wayne.edu/continuing-education/ Instructor: Anwar Najor-Durack, Ph.D., L.M.S.W.

Special Events

The Wayne State University’s Office of Special Events and Services was created to support the university and its schools, colleges and departments in planning major special events. Because the university is large and its initiatives are great, it is important that the university has a centralized office that is committed to assisting in the scheduling and execution of major events.

Special events are regularly conducted at all levels and locations throughout the university system in support of the university’s strategic vision and brand identity. The Office of Special Events seeks to provide a consistent and positive university image while maintaining maximum flexibility for events to appropriately reflect the distinctiveness of the school, college, department or campus responsible for planning and sponsoring the event. When involved, the office offers guidance and assistance in the following areas:

  • Help the university's schools, colleges, departments and campuses avoid conflicts when scheduling events
  • Help the Office of the President in maximizing event-appearance opportunities
  • Provide presidential protocol guidelines for special guests and invitees
  • Maximize university resources in regards to events
  • Support and promote the university’s positive brand image
