Linking Diet and Disease Conference is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Nov 29 - 30, 2018 at Lakes Resort Hotel, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. The target audience for this medical event is Nurses. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 10.30 CPD Hours. Course Overview: It’s easy to list foods in our diet and say whether they’re good for us or not, right? But – is it true? Is good or not true for all of us? And in what context, specifically? And, most importantly – WHY? As a population, we need to ask; how exactly is diet linked to disease? The growing relationship between chronic illness and food means that, increasingly, nurses are required to know how and why a person’s health needs to change. Modern thinking now suggests that striving to improve health is no longer as simple as “input versus output”. Attend this conference to learn how diet and disease are actually linked. Find out how you can really enable your patients to improve their health. Discover: • Why everything we put in our mouths is within our control • The brain’s response to an “obesogenic” environment • How the gut microbiome is connected to health • How successful medicines are for weight loss • Getting “buy-in” from patients who resist change and much Need for Program: The established connections between chronic illness and food mean that, increasingly, nurses are required to explain these connections and engage with patients to meaningfully improve their health. This ability to recognize and act on clinical indicators of impaired health as a result of diet is becoming a key feature of modern nursing. Nurses need to demonstrate nutritional literacy to assist a person to improve their health outcomes and, importantly, to prevent and in some cases treat their disease. As people, often with the same questions and struggles as their patients, there’s a timely need time to empower nurses to help themselves in order to help others. Purpose of Program: The purpose of this conference is to examine the link between diet and disease and integrate this knowledge into nursing practice in order to improve health outcomes for patients. Learning Objectives: • Understand the broad links between certain foods and chronic illness to explain them to your patient • Use the data from a nutritional assessment to assist in the identification and improvement of a patient’s health status • Explain simple approaches to weight loss and maintenance to your patients to assist them to overcome barriers to weight loss • Combine holistic nursing and health coaching principles to engage with patients and enable them to improve their health outcomes Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Clinical Relaxation and Massage Therapy for Nurses Seminar: Evidence-Based in Psychoneuroimmunology (Dec, 2018)
Dec 03 - 04, 2018 | CPD 10.00 | AUD $520 | Adelaide, South Australia
Clinical Relaxation and Massage Therapy for Nurses Seminar: Evidence-Based in Psychoneuroimmunology is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Dec 03 - 04, 2018 at Lakes Resort Hotel, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 10.00 CPD Hours. Course Overview: Why do nurses live with stress despite knowing it is detrimental to physical and psychological health? Why do nurses expect, even anticipate stress despite solid evidence that chronic stress compromises health? Preventing and coping with emotional and physical hazards in nursing is essential for nurses to compassionately care for others. An appreciation of Psychoneuroimmunology, which explains links between neurological, endocrine and immune systems, lays the foundation for enhanced stress management. This knowledge reveals how certain techniques are effective for relaxation. This unique and dynamic two-day seminar provides an opportunity for all nurses to learn: • Why is stress so detrimental to health? • How are stress, inflammation, and disease linked? • What is the science of mind-body health? • How are the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems connected? • What are the known benefits of relaxation? • How do evidenced-based relaxation techniques enhance healing and improve health? • Realistic approaches to integrate relaxation into modern, daily life and nursing practice • Opportunities to practice relaxation skills and much Need for Program: The nature of the profession, unfortunately, exposes nurses to physically and emotionally demanding situations. This daily taxing environment leads to work-related stress. It is well documented that stressful and traumatic events can impact the immune system and affect healing. Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) examines links between psychological processes and resistance to disease and chronic conditions. An understanding of PNI is important to nurses as it connects the negative impact of stress and the benefits of relaxation on health. Attending this program is more important than ever as it explains PNI research and offers efficacious relaxation strategies to promote mental and physical health in nurses and patients. Purpose of Program: The purpose of this seminar is to enable nurses to practically implement effective relaxation strategies that are underpinned by strong evidence-based knowledge. Learning Objectives: • Use PNI research to explain scientific mechanisms of stress-related ill health • Correlate links between stress, inflammation, and disease to instill a need for regular relaxation techniques • Apply evidenced-based relaxation techniques to enhance your own and your patients’ health • Enhance patients’ experience of care as a result of your better wellbeing

Mar 28 - 29, 2019 | CME 11.00 | AUD $540 | Adelaide, South Australia
Ethical Issues in Healthcare Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Mar 28 - 29, 2019 at Lakes Resort Hotel, Adelaide, South Australia, 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 health professionals, every day and in every situation, we try and make the right decisions. We strive to and even pride ourselves on behaving in the right way. Most of us would argue that we intrinsically act in an ethical as well as professional manner. But, although intuition is involved, it is not sufficient. Ethical behavior and ethical decision-making is a process. It incorporates values, opinions, perceptions, and personalities. Importantly, frameworks can assist us. This seminar will facilitate reflective practice by using relatable examples to explain what supports ethical behavior and decision-making, including: • What does unethical decision-making look like? • How would you know if you or a colleague behaved in an unethical manner? • Is it ethical to be friends with patients through social media? • Futile treatment, euthanasia, and other ethical challenges • What to do when your value system is compromised Need for Program: Nurses, midwives, and other health professionals are at the forefront of providing health care. All of us that work in healthcare will be confronted by a wide range of ethical issues during the course of our day-to-day work. There is a need to make rapid decisions, yet this can be complicated by high workloads, complex systems, and human factors. There are few opportunities to professionally engage and discuss the ethical issues that arise in health care. Learning more about ethics can ensure that health professionals can confidently manage difficult situations, make clearer decisions, and improve patient outcomes. Purpose of Program: By using realistic, everyday case studies, nurses, midwives, and other health professionals will gain practical knowledge on how to develop their ethical decision-making and problem-solving skills, and, in so doing, improve patient and family outcomes.
