Sarah ran into the break room obviously upset. “I’m frazzled,” Sarah said. “When a patient presents with a less common condition or disease, it seems impossible to try to keep the pathophysiology, interventions and related treatments all straight. I want to give the best to my patients, but struggle to keep on top of everything.”

In your clinical position, you are generally competent; however, there are times when an assignment comes your way that gets your stomach turning. Oh dear, what does it mean when someone has had a Whipple procedure? Or does a patient with a parathyroid disease need more or less calcium; what are the signs of hypocalcaemia? What are the signs and symptoms of myasthenia gravis? And what about the questions from patients’ loved ones… How is it best to educate lay people about diseases when the internet plays such a huge role in information sharing?

Relax and enjoy a day of pathophysiology with Rosale Lobo, PhD(c), MSN, RN, CNS, LNCC. Rosale has a wonderful way of making this information interesting, fun and practice-changing! Learning will happen through an interactive approach that uses case studies, open discussions, media and anecdotal experiences to bring lessons to life. You are guaranteed to experience revitalization of your clinical competence and mastery of some very challenging disease facts.
