Recognition and Clinical Assessment of the Deteriorating Patient - New Zealand
#nurse | #newzealand |#nz
23 February - 5 March 2019
In this Conference, we will explore the assessment of a patient with a variety of clinical disorders and conditions that include cardiac, respiratory, abdominal, and electrolyte imbalance. The teaching methodology will contain clinical scenarios that will assist the Nurse to recognise clinical deterioration and apply a critical thinking approach. The communication strategies to support patient assessment will also be investigated.
Assertion training is incorporated into the Conference content in recognition of this skill as a vital component of ensuring effective communication within the health care team.
Knowledge + Critical Thinking + Assertive Skills = Expert Nurse.
All three of these components will be explored in this conference framework.
In this Conference you will:
- Explore the skills required to recognise and undertake clinical assessment of the deteriorating patient
- Review a variety of clinical conditions relating to cardiac and respiratory disease, abdominal disorders, and electrolyte imbalance
- Discover how to apply critical thinking via a scenario-based teaching approach
- Gain assertiveness skills to enhance effective communication, and timely intervention, within the health care team
