THE RESPIRATORY PATIENT | AN ALASKAN CRUISE CONFERENCE | MAY 2020
by Cheryl Dezotti - Thursday, 6 June 2019, 8:16 AM
 


Join us and our Conference Partners, Education at Sea, for the Respiratory Patient Conference aboard the Norwegian Bliss as we explore Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan, and Victoria leaving from Seattle. 

Discover the natural wonders of Alaska, the beauty of Victora Canada, and all that the fabulous city of Seattle has to offer. 

This conference is applicable to every area of Nursing/Paramedics, from the acute setting in the emergency department, to the ward Nurse managing a patient with emphysema. Respiratory disorders are increasing and are considered one of the most common disorders affecting all ages. All Nurses must have advanced knowledge of the red flags and associated clinical presentation of a patient deteriorating with a respiratory disorder regardless of the primary condition of their admission.

Developing knowledge on how to recognise and perform advanced clinical assessment on a patient who is deteriorating is an expectation of the evolving role of the clinical Nurse. In this conference, we will explore the assessment of a patient with a variety of clinical disorders and emphasis will be given to respiratory disorders. The teaching methodology will contain clinical scenarios that will assist the Nurse to recognise clinical deterioration and apply a critical thinking approach. The communication strategies to support patient assessment will also be investigated. Assertion training is incorporated into the conference content in recognition of this skill as a vital component of ensuring effective communication within the healthcare team.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Explore the skills required to recognise and undertake clinical assessment of the patient with respiratory disease
