In order to prevent a medical crisis, you have to know:
- What the early warning signs are.
- How to perceive the early signs and symptoms.
- How to interpret the information within the whole clinical picture.
- How to act for the benefit of the patient.
- What to do first.
As a healthcare professional, you care for patients with a higher acuity than ever before. You use the clinical signs of illness to help you recognize a patient care dilemma. What if you could see the signs that compensation was taking place before the process failed? You can! Setting goals and priorities in a crisis are crucial to outcomes. Some signs are more important than others and need to be taken care of first. This seminar will show you how to recognize the subtle signs of compensation and act to head off a crisis.
Carol Whiteside will show you how to identify the signs and symptoms before the patient crashes. Carol will examine the body's complex, interrelated organ systems and break them into their component parts. You will see how a problem in one organ system can cause a sign or symptom in another organ system. You will see how setting a bad goal, or no goal, can be very detrimental to the patient's well being. If a crisis does occur, the effectiveness of setting goals and priorities will determine the outcome for the patient. Please join us for this valuable seminar and learn how to prevent and manage a crisis in your patient!
