Disaster Nursing Conference is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Jun 03 - 04, 2019 at Oaks on Collins, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. CPD Hours: 11 Hours.0 Mins Need for Program: No place on earth is immune to disasters. They may be relatively small and localised, for instance an attack against the state or affect entire regions such as a tsunami.

Purpose of Program: The purpose of this conference is to provide nurses with information and knowledge about disasters and their management to improve their professional preparedness. Conference Overview: All countries experience disasters of some kind and they are usually unpredictable. Australia, regularly experiences natural events such as floods, fires and cyclones. In an increasingly unstable world, attacks against the state, such as terrorist attacks, are also a sad reality. In any such event, you - as a nurse - are likely to be called upon to step up and act - clinically and in the community. While your hospital or workplace is likely to have an emergency management plan, have you thought about your own response? Are you prepared to rise to the challenge? What’s YOUR disaster management plan? Topics include: • Preserving evidence when a disaster occurs • Advanced trauma assessment and triage • Stories from actual disasters • Tips for staying calm under pressure and much, much more… Learning Outcomes: At the conclusion of this program it is expected that the participants will be able to: • Using knowledge of the ‘big picture’ of disaster management participate effectively in caring for those affected. • Confidently prioritise your nursing care for maximum effect in a disaster situation. • Follow through on the psychological implications of a disaster for all your patients and self. • Participate in planning and post-incident debriefing to ensure nursing considerations are implemented.
