Evidence-Based Practice for ICU Sedation, Central Line Infections and Early Feeding is organized by Nurse.com - OnCourse Learning Corporation and will be held from Feb 26, 2018 - Feb 26, 2021. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 Contact Hours.
Advances in technology give us easy access to a wealth of information to support evidence-based practice. By accessing these resources, nurses can provide patients with the best evidence-based interventions and treatments. This continuing education module reviews the evidence behind three practices: breathing trials for patients on mechanical ventilation, preventing CLABSIs and early feeding of critically ill patients.
The goal of this continuing education program is to provide evidence-based recommendations for sedation, central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSIs) and early enteral feeding so nurses can better care for critically ill patients. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
• Describe “sedation vacation” protocols for mechanically ventilated ICU patients
• State the nurse’s role in decreasing CLABSIs
• Discuss current recommendations for early initiation of enteral feedings in critically ill patients
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
