Prevent a Patient Crisis
Simulation Lab Scenarios & Critical Skills to Update Your Practice

See it coming. Intervene early. Prevent a code.

Ideally, your job isn't to run a good code...but to prevent the code from ever happening. The early warning signs are key — know them, notice them, interpret them within the whole clinical picture, then act appropriately and confidently.

When a patient begins deteriorating, are you overwhelmed and uncertain?
Are you afraid you'll miss subtle but crucial clues?

Demonstrate confidence, competence, and proficiency during the next patient crisis.

This online course will walk you step by step through the skills you need — from good communication to advanced critical thinking, and everything in between.
Simulation Lab Video Case Studies

Three real-life scenarios are brought to life in this unique online course.

The 'patient' talks, vital signs change, EKG rhythms require interpretation. Quick assessments, on-target interventions, and critical thinking are demonstrated and explained.

A debriefing follows each scenario to look at what was done well, and what could have been done better.

In addition the invaluable simulation videos, you'll get two engaging, high-energy presentations on patient crisis and emergencies. Walk away with advanced knowledge, tools, strategies, and interventions that will transform your practice — and ultimately help you save lives.
  • The dangers of being too task-oriented
  • How to stay out of court, and how to protect yourself if you do end up there
  • Documentation samples — examples of good and poor documentation
  • How to get your busy coworkers to weigh in on your patient's condition
  • The earliest sign of trouble may not be what you think
  • Strategies to differentiate the complaint of abdominal pain

  • ...and so much more!

Today's nurses care for more patients with higher acuity than ever before. Know who is at risk, recognize the warning signs, and prevent a crisis before it happens. The vital difference in effective nursing is in the ability to "see it coming". Return to your practice more prepared than ever to identify and manage — and even prevent — the next patient emergency!
