Imagine you are taking care of your patient - anywhere - any department/floor in the hospital, a nursing home, surgical site or clinic setting and suddenly grasp that an emergency situation is unfolding.

Even if you call an ambulance or have a rapid response team coming, YOU may still be taking care of that patient for up to 8 minutes or more. In that time, what can YOU do to help save lives? There are times in the past you wish you had done more….

This intense course will provide new clinical insights and critical thinking skills so you won't need to feel uncertain, scared or at risk anymore.
