Description

As an experienced healthcare professional, you see disease and injury all the time. The underlying cause of the presenting symptoms or complications can shed critical insight in the delivery of patient care. And that is why the backbone of pathophysiology understanding is so essential. However, we know that these concepts are not always easy to master. Often patient care becomes very complex with multiple conditions and diagnoses overlapping.

Join me! Angelica F. Dizon, MD, MSN, MBA-HCM, BSN, RN, NP-C, as I share from my extensive years in practice, working as both a physician and advance practice nurse. I will share countless practical pearls that will help you, too, to finally grasp pathophysiology at a truly advanced level.

Join me for the live webcast on Monday, June 14th. With your registration, you also have access to the video presentation for 90 days afterwards. It’s important to me that you can learn – at your own pace, your own way. For those of you who may be looking for pharmacology credits, this course also awards 3 ANCC approved pharmacology hours.

Most importantly, at the end of this comprehensive training, I guarantee that you will be able to target your clinical assessments and have confidence in the interventions that you initiate – because you will be able to dig deeper and understand so much better. All on your very next shift!
