Night Duty Nursing Conference is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Feb 21 - 22, 2019 at Rydges Sydney Central, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The target audience for this medical event is Nurses. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 11.00 CPD Hours. Conference Overview: Because night duty nurses usually practice in less-resourced situations, as well as in the dark of night, they experience a range of particular challenges, including people who rapidly become unwell. Attend this conference and learn about: • Clinical deterioration at night • How to assess the skin in five minutes • Troubleshooting venous access devices • New evidence on the effects of sleep disturbance • Finding the time to learn - how to stay up to date at night Need for Program: Nurses who practice at night may find it more difficult to access education that specifically relates to their work environment.

Evidence-based knowledge for a nurse at night is crucial for confident, safe, and effective decision-making. Purpose of Program: The purpose of this education is to provide a program that focuses specifically on the needs of nurses who work regular or occasional night shifts. Learning Objectives: • Engage in meaningful dialogue with colleagues to improve safety and quality of patients throughout the 24-hour continuum of care • Provide up-to-date evidence-based clinical care that relates to a range of conditions that can be problematic at night • Improve patient safety and reduce errors at night through knowledge of commonly administered medicines • Use information relating to your professional education requirements to enhance professional development Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Caring for Sick Children - General Paediatric Nursing Update Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Mar 14 - 15, 2019 at Rydges Sydney Central, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The target audience for this medical event is Nurses. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 11.00 CPD Hours. Course Overview: As a nurse, are you ever required to care for a sick or injured child even though it is not your specialty area of nursing?

It includes: • Considerations when assessing a sick or injured child • Involving the parents in a child’s immediate care • What to do for an asthma attack • Immunisation updates • Managing sepsis in children • Preventing injuries from nursery equipment and toys Need for Program: In Australia, most seriously unwell and severely injured children are cared for in dedicated tertiary hospitals – usually located in major cities. Though paediatric expertise is invariably clustered in and around these centres of excellence, children become ill or injure themselves at any time and in any place, meaning their first point of contact is likely to be a nurse outside of these centres. Such nurses need regular access to education that enables them to be safe and confident when caring for children and their families. Understanding modern paediatric concepts and improving knowledge about the care required for a sick or injured child is essential if positive health outcomes are to be achieved. Purpose of Program: The purpose of this program is to provide an update to general nurses on the appropriate, evidenced care of children who experience an illness or injury and also to address preventative measures to reduce hospital admission. Learning Objectives: • Correctly and swiftly assess a sick or injured child, based on knowledge of the main anatomical and physiological differences between children and adults • Provide care to a child that reflects evidence-based treatment that is age and developmentally appropriate • Provide a sick or injured child in your care with appropriate, evidence-based interventions to prevent further deterioration • Provide a child in your care and their family with holistic, family-centred communication Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
