The Goal

Need for Program

There are inherent risks associated with any surgical procedure. Preventing costly surgical complications, such as an unplanned return to theatre or an escalation of care to critical care environments, is a key priority after any procedure. The provision of care that is underpinned by best practice is known to reduce the likelihood of hospital-acquired complications. There is a timely need for nurses to gain key updates on how to detect and respond early to potential surgical complications if patient harm is to be minimised.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this conference is to provide key updates on how to detect and manage potential surgical complications so as to reduce patient harm and improve patient safety.

Your learning outcomes:

Be better able to recognise high-risk individuals before harm occurs
Utilise sharpened assessment skills to assist in responding to signs of clinical deterioration more rapidly
Reduce the pain and discomfort experienced by patients as a result of an unplanned return to theatre
Utilise communication and interprofessional collaboration across the surgical journey to support the provision of comprehensive care
