Cardiac Care: Advanced ECG Interpretation Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Oct 14 - 15, 2019 at Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The target audience for this medical event is nurses who already have a good, working knowledge of the 12-lead ECG and want to build on this. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 11.00 CPD Hours. Course Overview: Despite the rapid advances in investigative cardiology, the 12-lead ECG remains a cornerstone of cardiac assessment. As a nurse, you may often be involved in both performing and evaluating ECGs. However, if you are to perform this role competently, you will need extra tuition and guidance on a regular basis. Extend your knowledge by looking at advanced concepts such as: • Heart blocks • Bundle branch and fascicular blocks • SVT and VT • Chamber hypertrophy • Unusual ECG abnormalities Need for Program: The 12-lead ECG remains a cornerstone of cardiac assessment. Nurses are increasingly involved in both performing and evaluating ECGs. However, interpretation can be difficult, due to the complex nature of the underlying pathology and its manifestation on an ECG. Attending this seminar will build on your existing knowledge and assist you to understand advanced ECGs and therefore improve patient outcomes. Purpose of Program: To improve patient outcomes for people who display complex cardiac arrhythmias by increasing the ability to understand and interpret advanced ECGs. Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this program it is expected that the participants will be able to: • Apply knowledge of common post-operative complications to identify, prevent and manage a patient who is deteriorating • Improve patient outcomes by assessing and managing postoperative pain more effectively • Enhanced surgical pharmacology knowledge will assist you to administer appropriate medicines to reduce risks such as post-operative infections and VTE • Patients undergoing joint replacement surgery will benefit from improved nursing assessment and education
