Nurses who work at night – even occasionally – function in a different zone to those who work day shifts. Attend this conference and discover new ways of thinking about night duty nursing. It includes:
Nurses who work at night are exposed to different environmental conditions and their subsequent risks compared to those nurses on day shifts. For example, the resources available are limited by comparison, patients are generally sleeping, which can confuse clinical symptoms, and nurses may be affected by changes to their circadian rhythms. This means clinical assessment and decision-making, as well as the ability to be assertive, are critical skills if safe and appropriate care is to be provided. In addition, continuing professional development is a professional regulatory requirement.
This conference offers nurses who work regular or occasional night shifts education that relates specifically to their context of practice.
