NZACA Workshops 2022

 

Workshop for Registered Nurses and Clinical Managers 

 

The workshops for Registered Nurses are planned for June and July 2022. We are pleased to have secured amongst other presenters Dr Michal Boyd and Julie Daltrey for this round of workshops. 

 

Dr Michal Boyd and Julie Daltrey will present on detecting early warning signs of deterioration of residents in aged care. The poor detection of less obvious symptoms or decline in aged residential care residents can result in serious and mismanaged outcomes.

In this session, there will be discussion on the following:

  • Research behind the development of a deterioration identification system.
  • Healthcare assistant’s role in identification of deterioration.
  • Registered nurse interventions for the deteriorating resident.
  • SBAR review.
  • Observations – why they are important and how to use them most effectively to identify deterioration
  • Signs and symptoms of sepsis.
  • Signs and symptoms concerning deterioration.

 

The programme will also include sessions on:

  • Enabling best-practice care management and auditing practices.

  • Wound care/management and pressure area management.

  • Roles and responsibilities of RNs in aged care.
