12 Lead Refresher
This one day workshop is for registered nurses who have previously taken CEDN’s Introduction to 12 Lead ECG Interpretation course. Participants will review topics such as ECG changes for myocardial ischemia, injury and infarction, differentiating right bundle block from left bundle branch block, normal and abnormal axis deviations, left and right ventricular hypertrophy, supraventricular and ventricular tachyarrhythmias, and identify electrolyte and drug effects. Learning activities include lecture and group discussion, but the emphasis is hands-on practice.
In this 2 day workshop for RNs and LPNs, topics include preparation of the nurse and care unit - standards of care, multiple trauma assessment, documentation, respiratory emergencies, head, neck and spinal injuries, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, soft tissue emergencies, case studies and stabilization, and transport.
Falls Prevention Workshop
In this two day workshop, participants will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skill in falls prevention and reduction strategies across all sectors, and to apply that knowledge in relation to normal physiologic age-related changes of the elderly, medications and medication reviews and acute and chronic medical conditions (including cognitive impairment). Integrating effective fall prevention and reduction strategies into nursing practice can reduce serious fall related injuries, emergency room visits, hospitalizations, nursing home placement and functional decline. Learning activities will include pre-study and group discussion, but the emphasis will be hands-on practice.
Introduction to ECG Rhythm Interpretation
In this 2 day workshop for registered nurses, participants will develop a systematic approach to ECG interpretation. Topics covered include recognizing common sinus, atrial and junctional arrhythmias, identifying appropriate management for basic sinus, atrial and junctional arrhythmias, understanding documentation issues with clients on ECG monitors, identifying features of AV blocks, bundle branch blocks and ventricular arrhythmias, as well as identifying appropriate management for basic arrhythmias.
Care of Patients with Cardiovascular Conditions
This one day workshop for registered nurses will review basic hemodynamics, Acute Coronary Syndrome, and STEMI v. NSTEMI, as well as learn and apply assessment techniques and strategies to recognize changes in relation to cardiovascular system and care plan for safe, quality outcomes. Participants will improve their skill and ability to provide appropriate care and interventions in their workplace and be able to assess for the need for referral to another healthcare provider.
Simple Suture for RNs
This workshop is for registered nurses who work in areas that require them to perform simple suturing. Previous training or experience with suturing is not required. Participants will learn wound assessment and determine treatment options, such as suturing or further consultation, learn and demonstrate basic suturing techniques and choice of appropriate suture material.
Learning Activities include basics of materials and techniques, suture patterns, and discussion of wounds that may/should not be closed primarily, but may need to heal by secondary intention, proper cleaning and preparation of wound.
Suturing and Surgical Techniques for RN(NP)s
In this workshop for nurse practitioners (NP) and family practitioners, participants will be provided with a review of basic suturing skills and techniques, along with the opportunity to gain knowledge, skill and ability with more complicated sutures and other surgical skills.
Learning activities will include basics of materials and techniques, suture patterns, discussion of wounds that may/should not be closed primarily but may need to heal by secondary intention, proper cleaning/prep of wound, simple mole removal, assessment for and application of skin glue, incision and drainage and cyst with capsule removal.
X-ray Interpretation and Casting for RN(NP)s
We are reviewing this pilot workshop and will have more information for you shortly.
