You are working in Resus and receive a patient with life threatening injuries…they are deteriorating before your eyes.  You check the Airway which is compromised and the only Vascular access you have is a blue cannula in the cubital fossa.  Time is CRITICAL!  What are your airway and vascular options?

During this 2 hour interactive hands on workshop, you will utilise a worsening clinical scenario to demonstrate the complexity and challenges presented when faced with a patient who has a difficult airway and inadequate vascular access.  You will develop your critical thinking skills and identify the various innovative techniques, technologies and strategies used to optimise a critically ill patient in the Emergency department setting.

Costs

Ellery A, Alice Springs Convention Centre

Overview

Credentialing sets a standardised benchmark for the recognition of specialised practice in nursing. It is a mechanism that is used by nurses to promote the provision of quality health care within a given nursing specialty or area of practice. Credentialing validates specialised knowledge, enhances professional credibility, and indicates achievement of specialist nursing standards by an individual nurse.

CENA is now actively Credentialing Emergency Nurses; would you like to learn more?

This workshop is suitable for emergency nurses who are interested in learning more about the CENA credentialing program; either learning how to become credentialed as a specialist in the field of emergency nursing or how to become involved in developing this process into the future.

Background:

For the past 2 and a half years CENA has participated in a Queensland Health sponsored project called C4N (Credentialing for Nurses).  The aim of this project was to develop a pathway for specialist nurses to be recognised by their professional Colleges, in their workplaces and by consumers. The project has seen a number of Queensland emergency nurses credentialed, however it is time to introduce this program nationally.

From the 1st of July, 2016, emergency nurses across Australia are able to apply to CENA to be credentialed. If successfully credentialed, emergency nurses can choose to become credentialing Ambassadors, participate in the credentialing process through membership to the Credentialing Committee or assist others to be credentialed.

Preparing for low frequency high consequence events: Training the unanticipated

Don Garlick FCENA MAIES

Costs

  • $30 Members
  • $60 Non-members

1500-1700, 19th October 2016 (2 hours)
Ellery A, Alice Springs Convention Centre

Overview

Low frequency, high consequence events are not just simple disasters. They are events that are often unforeseen with impacts difficult to comprehend as they unfold. They create a great deal of fear and uncertainty for people responding to them. Emergency Departments are usually a significant part of the response to any of these events but how do you plan for unanticipated, overwhelming disasters?

This 2 hour workshop is aimed at reducing the complexity of “normal business” that drives Australian Emergency Departments and provide staff with a set of basic principles that can be used for managing a low frequency, high consequence event.

The workshop will use the experiences from low frequency, high consequence events that have particular relevance to emergency department staff to explore some of the cognitive science behind situational awareness and behaviour in disasters and focus on leadership, communication and tactical goals to develop a simple set of strategies that can be employed in any disaste
