    • Now, What Exactly Are Basic Needs?

      This section defines and describes basic needs, also known as physical needs or physiologic needs. It is absolutely essential that every nurse, nursing assistant, orderly, caregiver and patient care technician know all about the role of basic needs as they relate to the care of patients and residents. After all, the vast majority of our patients' various problems can be traced back to one or more unmet basic needs. 

  • Course learning outcomes

    Upon completion of this course, students and participants will be able to apply some elements of Maslow's Human Needs Theory to the healthcare setting during the provision of direct patient care.

    My main criticism is that after finishing the end of course quiz, which is submitted pending a review it doesn’t show on the portal as completed. Informative course, the only thing is that there is only 2 references, which isn’t really enough when discussing the Hierarchy of Needs. There has been journals which concluded that a person moves between the hierarchy before all the needs of one level are met, and suggested the order itself barring the basic needs are not in the same order for everyone.
