02

Most online learning students are undergraduate students at public institutions.

03

Typically, online courses utilize a Learning Management System (LMS) such as Moodle, Blackboard, D2L, or Canvas.

04

Part-time faculty were less likely to have had training or professional development for distance learning.

In March 2020, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) issued guidelines to institutions of higher education. Guidelines for college administrators included the utilization of alternative teaching methods. These are primarily online and distance learning. Accreditation requirements are temporarily waived for institutions shifting in-person instruction to online learning formats. This flexibility is limited to courses interrupted by COVID-19. The flexibility in distance learning cannot be applied to courses that rely on clock-hours for licensure. Institutions must utilize at least one type of technology, such as email, to communicate with students, provide instructional materials, and require students to submit work electronically. Colleges can utilize temporary consortium agreements with other colleges to allow students to complete work at other institutions but be awarded the credit at their home institution. Students can take a leave of absence, and the institution must allow the student to complete their coursework. However, if the student doesn’t return within 180 days to complete the program, the school must return Title IV funds. Institutions can reduce the length of the academic year. 04

Global Trade Biological Products Certificate Course

The FDA defines Biological products, like other drugs, are used for the treatment, prevention or cure of disease in humans. In contrast to chemically synthesized small molecular weight drugs, which have a well-defined structure and can be thoroughly characterized, biological products are generally derived from living material--human, animal, or microorganism-- are complex in structure, and thus are usually not fully characterized. Section 351 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act defines a biological product as a “virus, therapeutic serum, toxin, antitoxin, vaccine, blood, blood component or derivative, allergenic product, or analogous product, applicable to the prevention, treatment, or cure of a disease or condition of human beings.” FDA regulations and policies have established that biological products include blood-derived products, vaccines, in vivo diagnostic allergenic products, immunoglobulin products, products containing cells or microorganisms, and most protein products. Biological products subject to the PHS Act also meet the definition of drugs under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDC Act). Note that hormones such as insulin, glucagon, and human growth hormone are regulated as drugs under the FDC Act, not biological products under the PHS Act.

OBJECTIVES Describe the Biologics Control Act Describe which FDA Centers has regulatory responsibility over biological products. Name the biologic development requirements for a new drug product Name the requirements for licensing a biologic Describe Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs)on the Biologics manufacturing such as vaccines, allergens, stem cells, etc Explain what is US CFR Title of CFR contains regulations applicable to the FDA Define terms, What does safety mean?

LINK BETWEEN

DIABETES & CANCER Diabetes doubles the risk of liver, pancreas, and endometrial cancer. It increases the risk of colorectal, breast, and bladder cancer by 20% to 50% The vast majority of diabetes cases are type 2 diabetes, which is associated largely with older age and being overweight as well as family history. Older age and obesity also are risk factors for developing cancer, which means that people with type 2 diabetes are diagnosed with cancer more often than those in the general population. Chemotherapy is a common treatment for cancer patients, but its side effects can make it more difficult to keep blood sugar levels in check. Steroids are often given with chemotherapy to lessen nausea and they can raise glucose levels pretty markedly. For this reason, diabetes treatments need to be adjusted, and insulin injections may need to be started, especially around the time that the steroids are given. Steroids can also cause diabetes to arise, especially in people who already have risk factors for developing the disease. Uncontrolled high blood sugar can also cause dehydration, as can vomiting associated with chemotherapy. “Thus, it is important to detect and prevent high blood sugar in this setting. Patients who are not feeling well are more likely to eat so-called comfort foods, which tend to be high in carbohydrates and can negatively affect blood sugar levels.

OBJECTIVES - Describe the risks of carrying extra weight. - Develop skills for sustainable changes, such as increased water consumption and consistent exercise. - Provide plant-based recipes. Research shows a reduced cancer risk with increased intake of fruits and vegetables. - Reduce red meat and processed meat. Both have been linked with several cancers including colorectal, breast, gastric and prostate cancer - Exercise regularly. This has been found to inhibit tumor growth and aid in weight management

DIABETES & COUNTING CALORIES LEARNING OBJECTIVES: PARTICIPANTS LEARN THREE EASY LESSONS: How to read a food label to find carbohydrates. How to evaluate if a food product is "heart-healthy by looking at sodium, saturated fat, and trans fat. Does it have fiber? Or added sugar? What is a carbohydrate serving to manage diabetes? How to figure it out by reading a label? What is the amount of common foods? This point will also illustrate the third point. Instead of going crazy memorizing foods and looking them up on unwieldy lists, make a healthy diabetes plate by filling half your plate with nonstarchy vegetables, one-quarter healthy protein, and one-quarter whole grain or starchy veg. This will put you in an acceptable "per meal" range of carbohydrates for most people. It is a simple rule of thumb for people on the go!

EATING WITH DIABETES COURSE AND HANDOUT LESSON WHEN YOU NEED TO LOOK YOUR VERY BEST NOW

Learning objectives & benefits: Since blood sugar control is the primary goal with diabetes management – whether type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes – some foods are better at stabilizing blood sugar (i.e., slow carbs) and others raise blood sugar more quickly (i.e., fast carbs). The key is balancing your plate with all food groups: carbohydrates, lean proteins, and healthy fats, to keep blood sugar fluctuations at bay. The Eating With Diabetes PPT and Handout Lesson will provide valuable strategies for eating well with diabetes. Timing Is Everything: Timing your meals is important. Eating too often is not good for you or your blood sugar levels, and going too long without eating is also a recipe for disaster. So how do you find balance? Eat Every 3-4 Hours What Happens If You Wait Too Long? Symptoms of Hypoglycemia Meet the Carbohydrate: Carbohydrates are key to blood sugar control - some make it easier, while others make it harder. Once you know what to look for, managing your carbohydrate consumption is pretty straightforward. What Are Carbohydrates? Slow vs Fast Carbohydrates Reading a Food Label: It's not always easy to tell a slow carb from a fast carb, especially when it comes topacka ged food. Luckily, food labels can shed a lot of light on the situation. What Is a Carbohydrate Serving? What to Look For Make a Healthful Plate: Planning out meals and snacks and knowing exactly what you're eating is key to diabetes management.

MENTAL HEALTH AND DIABETES People with type 1 diabetes are at a heightened risk for mental health issues, including diabetes distress, depression, anxiety, and disordered eating. However, these are all treatable disorders. It is important to pay attention to your feelings about having diabetes or taking care of someone who has diabetes. When you aren't able to manage your diabetes well, your risk goes up for diabetes complications like heart disease and nerve damage. People with diabetes are 2 to 3 times more likely to have depression than people without diabetes. Only 25% to 50% of people with diabetes who have depression get diagnosed and treated. If you have diabetes — either type 1 or type 2 — you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together.

Learn about the signs of depression and DiabetesDepression can sneak up on anybodySometimes, there’s a sadness or an emotional flatness that just won’t go away. Sometimes, you just feel hopeless—and have no idea what comes next. However it shows up, depression can be hard to detect and can wreak havoc with your self care. Spotting depression is important—and it’s important to check for these symptoms Recognize how to deal angerIt’s natural to feel angryIt can start with your diagnosis. It can go from “why me?” to pure rage at your disease. Anger is an important part of your journey toward accepting your life with diabetes.
