The Foundations of Client Care program has multiple courses that are designed to teach basic foundational health science concepts as well as practical day-to-day information that can help improve patient outcomes. The content ranges from the basics of the human body including all of the major body systems, to bedside knowledge needed to offer care to any patient. In addition to these foundational concepts, there’s also a strong emphasis on skills such as how to take vital signs and wound care management. The goal is to equip a health care trainee with the information they need to succeed as well as to instill confidence through our step-by-step approach to learning. The whiteboard animation videos are meant to be approachable, efficient, and fun, while conveying a large swath of challenging scientific material. After completing the program, you should be one step closer to helping a patient get healthy.
