Re-orientation to acute care setting

Re-orientation to acute care setting

Are you a nurse or midwife wanting to work during the pandemic but need to refresh your acute practice skills?

This 2-day workshop is designed to upskill nurses and midwives to the acute care setting to build our workforce in response to the COVID pandemic.

You will be re-familiarised to the hospital setting, including SCOVID wards, electronic medical records (EMR) and other contemporary hospital documentation.

Using contemporary and COVID-related case scenarios, you will be provided with the opportunity to practice your clinical skills in our simulation centre, to identify and respond to clinical deterioration, including basic life support, rapid response processes and ISBAR communication.

This course is suitable for enrolled nurses, registered nurses and midwives.
