8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Critical Skills for Bedside Monitoring
Monica Farnsworth

Lecture Description
This course teaches critical 12-lead ECG skills, but the real value is that nurses can make a real difference in the care of their patients when they understand how to use the bedside monitor as an extension of the ECG. 12-lead ECG concepts learned in this course can be applied to skilled monitoring at the bedside, allowing nurses to see changes in real time and alerting providers to issues requiring intervention.

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Time Sensitive Issues: Stroke, STEMI, Sepsis
Alex Klacman

Course Description
This seminar is designed for all healthcare professionals caring for the adult hospitalized patient. The focus of the presentation is rapid assessment, triage and treatment of the three most time sensitive emergencies for the hospitalized adult. Acute myocardial infarction (STEMI), stroke and sepsis are now the “golden hour” emergencies that require rapid identification, diagnostic testing and treatment for improved survival. This program will address the process of moving the patient quickly through assessment, diagnostics and to evidence-based treatment protocols. Patient safety data, measurable patient outcome criteria and improved communication within the medical-surgical-provider staff will also be presented.

8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Hidden Figures: A Case-Based Approach to Mastering Lab Interpretation
Kelly Thompson-Brazill

Lecture Description
This half-day course will strengthen bedside nurses ability to quickly and correctly interpret laboratory data using case studies. Laboratory tests will include basic metabolic panels, liver function tests, complete blood count, urinanalysis and arterial blood gases.


1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Cultural Diversity: Its Impact on Healthcare
Pat Clutter

Lecture Description
This course is an introduction to the aspect of culture in caring for our patients. Language barriers are one component that can impact how we care for those who come to us, but it’s more than simply a language barrier. Respect for the practices and beliefs of others is paramount in being able to competently care for those who present to us for help. Approaching the patient with a different cultural and / or religious background must be accomplished with an attitude of grace and a mindset that allows them to feel free to discuss their concept of the illness or injury. This presentation will provide an overview of the components of culture and will address particular aspects of healthcare related to certain groups. As healthcare providers, we must also understand our own cultural background, how that affects our view of others and how it may impact our delivery of care.
