Preventing Post-Operative Complications: Module 1

Changes in the post-surgical environment mean that patients have shorter post-operative hospital stays and spend more recovery time at home. Nurses providing care in the post-operative setting are left with the highest risk patients and tight schedules for getting them out the door. You are now challenged to ensure safety, minimize complications, and support an optimal recovery along the way. If you are providing care to patients recovering from a surgical intervention, you are guaranteed to sharpen your skills through updated knowledge gained by attending this critical one-day event!

Advancing Your Telemetry Skills for the Complex Patient: Module 1

Managing complex patients in the telemetry unit can be challenging for even experienced nurses in today’s outcome and technology-driven cardiology world. Are you familiar with the core measures frequently monitored on the telemetry unit? Are you confident in your ability to care for a patient who has a wearable defibrillator? Are you comfortable in your ability to titrate and wean oxygen? Do you hesitate on the steps necessary to cardiovert or defibrillate your unstable patient? Best practices are constantly evolving in response to the latest guidance coming from research. While it can be challenging to remain current with trends in telemetry nursing care, for your patients… it can be critical that you do so. Make time to attend this hands-on, engaging and highly informative event to advance your practice!
