Overview

Target Audience

RN, CNS, LVN/LPN, NP 

We welcome PHMC nurses, respiratory therapists, EMS, or any off-island medical personnel to attend.


Course Description

The job of the nurse would be easy if all of our patients were exactly the same. If each patient were the same age, the same shape and the same personality, we would be able to apply a “cookie cutter” approach to the care of the patient. But as any nurse will tell you, every patient is unique, and with each unique characteristic comes unique care considerations. This seminar is designed to present a number of unique patient populations and the care challenges that these populations present. Considerations such as age, body size and personality will be presented. Participants will not only be provided with information about each unique patient population, but will also be given suggestions on caring for each patient population.

Program Learning Outcomes

This program prepares the learner to:

  • Identify patient populations which require unique considerations.
  • Verbalize assessment parameters specific to unique patient populations.
  • List interventions which are unique to special patient populations.
