Mental Health: Post Traumatic Stress Disorders and Acute Stress Disorder in Adults Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Feb 11 - 12, 2019 at Oaks on Collins, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 11.30 CPD Hours.
Need for Program:
Many Australians experience traumatic events that threaten their health or safety, and some of these people can develop Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Nurses and midwives need to be able to identify people with these conditions, as early as possible, so that appropriate treatments and therapies can be initiated. As ASD or PTSD are often poorly understood and Nurses and midwives may not be familiar with the latest Australian Guidelines for the treatment of these conditions a program that refreshes knowledge on these topics is necessary.
Most nurses and midwives will encounter someone suffering from Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) or Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during the course of their practice. Attend this seminar to learn about:
• The difference between ASD and PTSD
• Responses to traumatic events
• Treatments and therapies
• Long-term prognosis
• Practical case scenarios
Purpose of Program:
This seminar provides nurses and midwives with current knowledge about Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). A further aim is to enhance practice relating to these conditions according to current Australian Guidelines.
• Develop skills to identify the signs and symptoms of ASD and PTSD
• Describe who is most at risk of developing ASD and PTSD
• Be familiar with the current Australian Guidelines for the Treatment of Acute Stress Disorder & Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
• Plan and personalize the care for people with ASD or PTSD
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
