Need for Program
Rapid changes in health care, including technology, have resulted in a steep rise in the acuity of patients across all clinical settings. People who may have once been cared for in a high-dependency setting are now routinely cared for on general wards. As new knowledge emerges at frightening speeds and some previous practices are now seen to be outdated, being well-informed is an imperative for enrolled nurses who care for patients requiring acute care. There is a timely need for formal education that provides enrolled nurses with key clinical updates on a range of acute care topics.
Purpose of Program
The purpose of this program is to provide enrolled nurses with key clinical updates on a range of acute care topics and, thereby, to improve outcomes for patients with increasingly complex conditions.
Your learning outcomes:
Implement and evaluate care that reflects best-available nursing evidence, so that safe and quality care is provided
Apply knowledge of common post-operative complications to identify, prevent, and manage a patient who is deteriorating
Respond timely to changes in a patient’s condition with appropriate assessment within your scope of practice
Provide preventative action for people with health risks to avoid acute illness
