Need for Program
A fundamental aspect of nursing care is the ability to conduct a comprehensive patient assessment and interpret and act on the relevant findings. New techniques and evidence are always emerging, which will impact on assessment knowledge and skills that already exist. Closing the gap between what is already known and any new aspects of assessment is necessary if critical thinking is to be maintained at a high level.
Purpose of Program
The purpose of this seminar is to offer all nurses an opportunity to update their general clinical assessment skills.
