Subtle Clues of Impending Doom: Prioritizing Action
Copyright :


You’ve been there before, caring for a patient…when you get that pit in your stomach feeling that something is going to take a turn for the worse

It all happens so quickly! Soon you are calling for the rapid response team to provide some backup.  Those minutes feel long until others arrive to lend a clinical hand.  You’ve worked hard to accumulate experience and important patient insights.  However, in these critical moments when a patient begins to deteriorate, are you confident in your next steps? 

Join Sean G. Smith MSc, FP-C, C-NPT, CEN, CFRN, CPEN, CCRN-CMC (Adult), CCRN-K (Neonatal), CCRN-K (Pediatric), for this practice changing session.  Sean is a flight nurse-paramedic who has practiced in Rapid Response teams, Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, and Aero-Medical Transport (military and civilian) for over 25 years. His extensive and on-going clinical expertise will be evident! 

Fear of the unknown is often the biggest problem we face in our professional work, and few patients are more terrifying or difficult than the patient facing impending doom.  This session will provide new clinical problem-solving 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 – and real! - cases.
