The Immune System, Inflammation, and Cancer Conference is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Mar 14 - 15, 2019 at ibis Brisbane, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 11.00 CPD Hours. Course Overview: Why is it that our highly crafted immune system, which forms a defensive shield to protect our body and fight infections, can switch and become destructive? The answer may lie in inflammation. As research uncovers new links between the immune system, inflammation, and diseases, such as cancer, it’s essential that we, as health professionals, remain up-to-date on advances in modern medicine. Book your place at this conference and discuss: • Why is uncontrolled inflammation a cause for concern? • Is inflammation linked to depression? • Digging up the dirt on being clean - appraising the hygiene hypothesis • The ABCs of biomarkers, biosimilars and biological agents • CAR T-cells - driving changes in cancer treatment? • Rethinking the critically ill patient with cancer and much, much more Need for Program: More and more research continues to reveal the fascinating links between the immune system, inflammation, and diseases, such as cancer. The exciting evidence is rapidly being translated into new treatments of diseases. However, an abundance of unproven information and pseudoscience exists in this space. Therefore, it is essential that all health professionals, and particularly nurses, are provided with opportunities to access evidence-based content if health outcomes and health literacy are to remain high. Purpose of Program: To update health professionals on the emerging conditions associated with the immune system and its response to chronic inflammation and cancer so as to improve health outcomes. Learning Objectives: • Appraise various sources of information relating to inflammation so as your knowledge reflects best-available evidence • Provide correct information and education to people in your care, enhancing patient health literacy and adherence to treatment • Promote evidence-based preventative actions for people with health risks to enable them to avoid illness • Identify potential triggers and initiate early interventions to prevent infections in people undergoing novel cancer therapies
Mar 21 - 22, 2019 | CPD 10.15 | AUD $540 | Brisbane, Queensland
Clinical Deterioration - Identify, Assess, Prevent Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Mar 21 - 22, 2019 at Ibis Brisbane, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The target audience for this medical event is Nurses. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 10.15 CPD Hours. Course Overview: There is a significant potential for patients across any clinical setting to rapidly become unwell. Recent system changes have been rolled out to encourage better management of clinical deterioration. However, your ability to recognise and respond to changes in a patient’s condition early is a high priority if acute illness is to be averted. Attend this two-day seminar to gain knowledge that will help you to feel more confident that your essential assessment skills and early nursing management can detect early cues and prevent poor patient outcomes. Learn about: • The power of assessment when your patient is deteriorating • How to recognize sepsis early • Warning signs of acute kidney injury • How to recognize acute respiratory failure including basic CXR interpretation • Tips for recognizing common arrhythmias and electrolyte imbalances • How to perform a basic interpretation of arterial blood gases • The power of communication when things don’t go to plan Attend this seminar if you are a nurse working in a general clinical setting and want to improve your ability to identify and manage patients whose clinical condition is deteriorating. Need for Program: Growing numbers of high acuity patients are increasingly being cared for across a wide range of clinical settings, not just in acute care units such as intensive care units. The more acutely unwell a person is, the greater the risk of poor patient outcomes, including increased morbidity and mortality. Nurses are essential to the prevention, early detection, and management of the developing problems that can increase morbidity and mortality. The ability to recognise and interpret clinical cues and then implement appropriate, evidence-based interventions in a timely manner has a significant positive impact on patient outcomes. Therefore, nurses must continually increase their knowledge to ensure they are sufficiently educated to care for patients at risk of deterioration and prevent them from becoming acutely unwell. Purpose of Program: This seminar enables nurses working in general areas to feel more confident in their knowledge and ability to assess and manage patients whose clinical condition is deteriorating. Learning Objectives: • Relate pathophysiological principles that occur in acutely ill patients to prioritize assessment in a patient who is deteriorating • Correlate clinical assessment findings with pathophysiological processes occurring across a range of body systems • Apply a range of appropriate and timely evidence-based nursing interventions for a person who is acutely ill and whose condition is deteriorating • Recognise and respond to early signs of sepsis by implementing evidence-based interventions and thereby improving patient outcomes Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
