Conference Brochure

Medicines: Improve Your Knowledge Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Apr 20 - 21, 2020 at Burke & Wills Hotel, Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.

11h 30m

Why Attend:
Medicines are one of the highest risk areas of practice for all nurses. This vital update will increase your confidence in:
• Preventing medicine errors
• How medicines act and are metabolised
• Safe administration and storage of medicines
• Common medicine interactions and side effects
• Where to look for credible medicine information
• How to educate patients about their medicines

Need for Program:
The administration of medicines is one of the riskiest areas of nursing practice and requires a thorough understanding of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. In this context, it is imperative that medicine interactions and unwanted side effects are readily identified. The combination of new and current medicines requires nurses to continually expand their knowledge and that of their patients. The onus for safe and quality practice remains with the professional handling of medicine. It is, therefore, imperative that nurses engage in evidence-based education.

Purpose of Program:
The purpose of this seminar is to provide up-to-date, evidence-based knowledge about the safe and quality use of medicines in nursing practice.

Learning Outcomes:
• Analyse key concepts in pharmacology, such as how medicines exert their action, why the body’s handling of a medicine differs between individuals, and how these relate to appropriate dosage
• Explain the reasons for different dosage forms and the advantages and disadvantages of different routes of administration
• Source and appraise information about medicines and explain to a student nurse or colleague how to find and identify high-quality sources of information
• Recognise circumstances that expose patients to medication misadventure and how to avoid them
