• How does fatigue impact your cognitive performance?

Literature is now revealing the physical and emotional consequences of shift work. Safety and quality of patient care may be compromised if nurses and midwives are not optimally prepared for the demands of shift work. Evidence-based knowledge of how to improve performance and minimise risk is crucial to clinical confidence and safe provision of care. Education that encourages nurses’ to improve their own health and wellbeing is likely to further complement quality patient outcomes and improve job satisfaction.
The purpose of this event is to provide formal, evidence-based education on how to overcome the demands that shift work places upon the health professional.
Conference Objectives :
• Engage in meaningful dialogue with colleagues to improve safety and quality of patients throughout the 24-hour continuum of care
• Reduce errors at night through knowledge of fatigue and performance
• Have greater clinical confidence to provide care relating to a range of conditions that require timely, focused interventions
• Use information relating to the implications of shift work on health and wellbeing to enhance self-care and motivation
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
