Description

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. Do you know what to do? Are you confident in your response? 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. The ability to assess, intervene and advocate will be reinforced through exciting clinical cases. You will experience the dramatic changes in your own practice when you work your next shift! PLUS, you will earn a Certificate in Patient Crisis Prevention and up to 12 CE Hours!
