This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 Contact Hours. Target Audience • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists Course Description: Jessica attended a nursing program with stellar faculty and great internships. She had always heard, "if you don't document, you will get in trouble". No one could explain what that meant. During her orientation as a new graduate, her preceptor taught her how to document the unit requirements and reassured her that writing much more was a waste of time. Jessica never questioned otherwise. At this time in her career, Jessica was thinking… "I don't worry much about charting; the computer takes care of that. As long as I chart what my unit audits for, I can sleep soundly." 2 years later Jessica sat down quietly at the deposition table, her head hung low and she hadn't slept in months. They asked her to say and spell her name for the court reporter and she was sworn in. "Do you promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?" If this could happen to Jessica, it could happen to you. But how did this happen? How did what Jessica charted turn into a deposition proceeding? How does this happen to any good nurse? Healthcare today is rife with litigation against nurses. There is more accountability, reliability, autonomy, and liability. The rate of nurses becoming part of lawsuits is steadily on the rise. Join Legal Nurse Consultant, Cyndi Zarbano, for this interesting and intriguing look into nursing documentation. This intense workshop will immerse you into the world of nursing from a litigious viewpoint. Learner Objectives: • Plan to use factual tactics to stay out of court. • Assess time stamping in your charting for contemporaneous patient accounts. • Explain deposition behaviors that favor your credibility. • Summarize hazards of inconsistent use of drop down boxes. • Distinguish between defense counsel that is for or against you. • Formulate habits that keep your license safe. • Analyze the chart specific to your specialty. • Contrast between poor and exceptional quality charting. • Summarize common charting mistakes and how to avoid them.

One published study demonstrated a 24% decrease in cortisol (stress hormone) level in the EFT group. (Energypsych.org) EFT is effective brief therapy and belongs in every therapist’s toolbox.

This seminar focuses on cutting-edge techniques of EFT to treat the anxiety spectrum disorders, including: • Phobias • Generalized Anxiety • Social Anxiety Disorder diagnoses • Panic • OCD • Acute Traumatic Stress Reactions These mind-body methods are emerging into mainstream mental health, trauma treatment, coaching, employee assistance programs and sport psychology arenas as a rapid, effective, non-invasive, calming, desensitizing tool. Do not miss this opportunity to learn evidence-based techniques you can use immediately with your clients and improve treatment outcomes. Course Objectives: • Explain the origin and efficacy of the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) including peer-reviewed, published research. • Implement self-applied, light touch or tapping on acupoints to calm and rebalance the body system while thinking about disturbing upsets – to create a desensitize state as measured by continuous dropping of the SUDS level. • Distinguish that EFT is a mind-body treatment that desensitizes unwanted thoughts, emotions and physical discomfort. • List exploratory questions to elicit the first or worst defining event and how to treat in all manifestation in the past, present and future. • Demonstrate EFT techniques for stress, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder and panic and traumatic events. • Describe how EFT can greatly diminish frustrating OCD compulsions and unwanted habits. • Utilize a two-prong approach to treating social anxiety: EFT and social skill building. • Describe why EFT works in conjunction with and beyond talk therapy and how it often cuts quickly through resistant problems. • Explore working with pain reduction using acupoints and psychological constructs of metaphors and emotions. • State the ethical concerns of not working outside knowledge base and obtaining ongoing “permission” to use these methods.
