NEW: Updated Content, Format & Interactive Activities for 2018!

Course Description

This revised one day course will cover essential competencies in the care of the perianesthesia patient. The Canadian Nurses Association’s (CNA) Blueprint for Perianesthesia Nursing Practice is the framework  used for the content review. The course will include best practices and current evidence related to assessment, care planning and management across all phases of the perianesthesia experience (pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative).  Enhanced content for 2018: addressing accreditation standards across the continuum (i.e. delirium & falls prevention, medication reconciliation, advanced care plans, handover etc.); in-depth hemodynamic/invasive monitoring review; management of urgent & emergent complications – “the crashing patient”; diagnostic imaging and procedural innovations; and unique considerations for geriatric, pediatric and obstetrical patient populations.  Interactive activities and case examples from across settings will be incorporated throughout the day.
