2009 Continuing Education Information

Purpose

To provide an update on evidence-based practices for nurses practicing, teaching, or conducting research, and QI projects in clinical settings, and to offer nurses committed to clinical excellence a forum for interacting with experts and colleagues to gain new knowledge, skills, and insights to improve the quality of patient care.

Objectives

At the conclusion of this conference, you'll be able to:

  • Identify successful solutions nurses have implemented in solving problems around the delivery of safe, cost-effective care.
  • Describe what nursing excellence should look like in discussing new therapies and guidelines for critical assessment, care plans and pathways, diabetes management, human trafficking, using technology for evidence-based practice, cardiovascular disease, pain guidelines, and more.
  • Discuss the ramifications of new federal and state regulations and costs associated with hospital conditions and how nurses can be proactive in managing the effects.
  • Identify your own position, role, and plan of action during ethical, legal, or interpersonal conflicts in the workplace.
