Our thanks to Laura Flynn R.N., B.N., M.B.A. and Sherry Collis, L.P.N., B.B.A. for the development of this module.


Welcome to this self study online module about all the issues regarding enhancing back safety so that you can make wise decisions to protect yourself from a back injury.

This module includes core content, suggested activities that encourage creative problem solving, and quotes and jokes to entertain and lighten the learning process.

This module was originally a facilitator-led in-service training program with slides. These slides, where appropriate, have been incorporated into this online module to provide easy visual emphasis of key points. 

You can complete the module with a colleague or mentor or as self study. A post completion test is included to ensure you fully understand the key points. If you get a question wrong, go back to the relevant section and make sure you understand the answer.

However, before completing the post-test, refer to the CHECK YOUR KNOWLEDGE section in order to make sure you understand the main ideas in the content. Once you are confident that you understand the content and have correctly completed the post-test questions, feel free to print out your certificate of accomplishment.

I look upon the “Herb Interaction” book as a “quickie” for my pharmacy team, no need to get bogged down on the computer.

The book on “foot ulcers” spoke to me, I now understand the importance of foot care.

We forget sometimes the power of the patient for healing through compliance and self care habits. We should provide understandable information.

The Dr’ Guide books were a great door opener and relationship builder with the allergy medical team. Our reps loved them.

We had the highest BRC (business Reply Card) return rate of all time – it built up great customer goodwill and easier repeat calls.

The distribution of the Dr. Guide books was the most cost effective, most quickly integrated and best ROI program I have had in years – no committee development meetings, no sky high “creative” costs and so appropriate for our product / treatment messages.
