Dec 12 - 13, 2019 | CME : 10.15 | AUD $540.00 | Brisbane, Queensland
Clinical Deterioration - Identify, Assess, Prevent Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Dec 02 - 03, 2019 at Ibis Brisbane, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 10.15 CPD Hours. Course Overview: There is a significant potential for patients across any clinical setting to rapidly become unwell. Recent system changes have been rolled out to encourage better management of clinical deterioration. However, your ability to recognize and respond to changes in a patient’s condition early is a high priority if the acute illness is to be averted. Attend this two-day seminar to gain knowledge that will help you to feel more confident that your essential assessment skills and early nursing management can detect early cues and prevent poor patient outcomes. Learn about: • The power of assessment when your patient is deteriorating • How to recognize sepsis early • Warning signs of acute kidney injury • How to recognize acute respiratory failure including basic CXR interpretation • Tips for recognizing common arrhythmias and electrolyte imbalances • How to perform a basic interpretation of arterial blood gases • The power of communication when things don’t go to plan Attend this seminar if you are a nurse working in a general clinical setting and want to improve your ability to identify and manage patients whose clinical condition is deteriorating. Need for Program: Growing numbers of high acuity patients are increasingly being cared for across a wide range of clinical settings, not just in acute care units such as intensive care units. The more acutely unwell a person is, the greater the risk of poor patient outcomes, including increased morbidity and mortality. Nurses are essential to the prevention, early detection, and management of developing problems that can increase such morbidity and mortality. The ability to recognize and interpret clinical cues and then implement appropriate, evidence-based interventions in a timely manner has a significant positive impact on patient outcomes. Therefore, nurses must continually increase their knowledge to ensure they are sufficiently educated to care for patients at risk of deterioration and prevent them from becoming acutely unwell. Purpose of Program: This seminar enables nurses working in general areas to feel more confident in their knowledge and ability to assess and manage patients whose clinical condition is deteriorating. Learning Objectives: • Relate pathophysiological principles that occur in acutely ill patients to prioritize assessment in a patient who is deteriorating • Correlate clinical assessment findings with pathophysiological processes occurring across a range of body systems • Apply a range of appropriate and timely evidence-based nursing interventions for a person who is acutely ill and whose condition is deteriorating • Recognise and respond to early signs of sepsis by implementing evidence-based interventions and thereby improving patient outcomes
Dec 12 - 13, 2019 | CE 14.00 | USD $1495 | St. petersburg, Florida
Hygienist's Role in Supporting Complete Dentistry is organized by The Dawson Academy and will be held from Dec 12 - 13, 2019 at The Dawson Academy, St. petersburg, Florida, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Dental Hygienists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14 CE Credits. Course Description: This two-day dental hygienist ce course is designed to significantly enhance the dental hygienist’s knowledge of complete dentistry as it relates to periodontal health and occlusal stability.

He/she will also learn communication skills necessary to transition patients to a “complete” dental practice. Designed to parallel the dentists’ curriculum, this dental hygiene course will reinforce the hygienist’s vital role in bringing the practice full circle for the development of optimum oral health and longevity for all patients! Course Objectives: • Identify a systematic approach to understanding centric relation dentistry and the importance of healthy occlusion. • Recognize and gain a clear understanding of what optimum oral health looks like. • Recall head and neck anatomy as it relates to the temporomandibular joints, muscles and the bite. • Observe the role of occlusion in predictable, stable oral health. • Identify the relationship between occlusion and periodontal disease. • Explore the complete exam process and how to utilize this information at the hygiene visit. • Assess the importance of quality diagnostic records and how they are obtained. • Distinguish the role of the hygienist in transitioning the practice to complete dental practice. • Observe how to implement and discuss the concepts of complete dentistry with patients chairside. • Breakdown and introduce other common topics such as headaches, splints, sleep apnea and nutrition.
