Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. Farm operators as well as farm youth experience frequent exposure to high noise and have among the highest prevalence rates of hearing loss among all categories of workers. Additionally, noise exposure impacts multiple organ systems, contributing to cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity, and other highly prevalent diseases. Although the effects of noise can be mitigated through use of hearing protection and other strategies, these methods are highly underused in this worker group. Nurses in a variety of clinical settings who provide care for farm operators and farm youth are in a unique position to influence the noise mitigation behaviors of this high-risk and under served group. In this Webinar designed for nurses caring for workers in production agriculture, learners will discuss methods of assessing worker exposure to hazardous noise, and evidence-based nursing approaches to protect workers from the negative effects of noise on hearing and worker well-being. At the completion of this program, the participant will be able to: 1. Discuss a minimum of four several risk factors for noise-induced health problems common among farmers. 2. Describe three major features of interventions shown to be effective influencing farmers' use of hearing protection. 3. Analyze best practices for clinical application of farm noise mitigation effectiveness research.

Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. Health care providers in agricultural communities frequently are not aware of the equipment, chemical and animal related opportunities for injuries and fatalities to youth. Injuries are the most common cause of death for children and adolescents, and farms and ranches present many unique hazards to youth that result in illness, injury, and death. Nurses will be better equipped to understand the types of injuries that too often occur to youth living and working in agriculture and have an increase in background knowledge to assess and treat youth in clinical environments. Objectives: 1. Name at least four specific safety hazards on farms and express how one might counsel families to prevent injuries from those hazards. 2. Describe what a PTO is and how one avoids injuries associated with them. 3. State at least two ways to prevent injury when operating tractors. 4.
