    If you are a current or aspiring NUM or Nurse Manager of a health service, learn the leadership skills you need to deliver an engaged, dynamic, well-integrated team of Nurses. 

    Business and healthcare is an awkward mix - this conference aims to equip you with the “soft” and “hard” skills that you need to triumph in this challenging role.

    Conference Learning Outcomes:

    • Understand your own leadership and management values and develop your professional career plan to get the job you want
    • Learn about transformational leadership and how to build an inspired culture of learning and innovation
    • Discover the future trends of health care delivery and what skills will be needed to manage in this changed environment
    • Comprehend and apply practical management skills to deliver organisational results

    The venue for the conference is the Carnival Spirit as the ship cruises the South Pacific. The Conference venue will provide the conference attendee the fabulous opportunity to explore the beautiful South Pacific destinations outside of conference hours.

    The education content provided in this program meets the same exacting standards as anything offered in an Australian land-based program. What we have done is marry best practice content with a cruise ship conference venue to provide you with a Travel CPD experience, where the conference content is as important as your need for rest and relaxation.  Nurses spend their lives looking after others – this conference venue looks after the Nurse for a change.

    Building Rapport with Children

    Building Rapport with Children

    An introduction to incorporating child play as a communication tool into healthcare #nurses #paediatrics

    27 October - 3 November 2019

    This Travel CPD Conference is brought to you in partnership with Education at Sea. The focus of the Conference is developing your clinical play skills to effectively communicate and interact with children in your care, so that the children and their parents feel less anxious and more confident in the provision of their individualised health care plan.

    All Nurses see paediatric clients at some time and no matter what area of Nursing you work in (e.g. Acute Care, A&E, ICU, Theatre, Medical Imaging or Paediatrics) you are going to come across children who are unable or unwilling to communicate like an adult patient can.

    If you can learn to talk and play, then you exponentially increase your literacy skills so you can communicate to children and adults in creative, playful yet effective ways. To do this you will need to learn about how children develop sequentially and holistically.

    Recognition and Clinical Assessment of the Deteriorating Patient - PNG
