Cardiac disease is increasing in our community. Technology and better knowledge, combined with less invasive treatments, mean that even people with complex cardiac conditions are living longer. If you care for patients with complex cardiac disease attend this conference to advance your knowledge about:
- Complex dysrhythmias – causes, identification, and management
- Chest pain – differentiation of types and immediate nursing interventions
- Heart murmurs, extra heart sounds, and valvular disorders – how to accurately auscultate
- Cardiogenic shock – clinical symptoms and shock
- Complex case study of a patient with congestive cardiac failure
- Troubleshooting temporary epicardial pacing and much, much more...
Attend this seminar if you are already confident in your cardiac care and would like to advance your knowledge further in regard to complex, yet common cardiac conditions. Book now!
Need for Program
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW, 2016), nearly half a million hospital admissions in 2014 to 2015 were specifically related to the circulatory system, including arrhythmia, heart failure, heart attacks, and angina. As our ageing population increases, so do complex cardiac diseases. Nurses caring for patients with these conditions need to feel confident that they are up-to-date with the assessment and management of complex cardiac disorders so as to continuously improve patient outcomes.
Purpose of Program
The purpose of this program is to improve patient outcomes through assessment, understanding of relevant pathophysiology, and appropriate evidence-based nursing actions for people who present with cardiac disease.
Your Learning Outcomes
- You will have greater confidence in assessing a patient with a complex cardiac condition
- Patients in your care will have complex dysrhythmias recognised at an early stage and managed according to best-practice
- Immediate nursing assessment, management, and differentiation of chest pain will reflect current guidelines
- Knowledge of cardiac function will assist you to recognise cardiogenic shock early to prevent complications
