The Goal Need for Program
Blood is essential to human life. However, disorders of the blood are common and manifest in a range of clinical settings. Blood and its components are a precious resource frequently administered by nurses but this is not without risk. A conference that reviews our modern understanding of the physiology of the blood and evidence-based treatments of common disorders is timely.
Purpose of Program
The purpose of this conference is to provide nurses with an evidence-based update on the role of blood, its components and disorders, so as to improve patient outcomes.
Your learning outcomes:
Clearly relate nursing practice to knowledge of the blood and correlate this to improved patient outcomes
Correlate the pathophysiology of a number of blood disorders to appraise the appropriateness of modern treatments
Describe how certain medicines can affect the blood and how nursing actions can minimise risk to improve patient outcomes
Implement evidence-based nursing strategies to reduce the incidence of iatrogenic venous thromboembolisms
