Description

The study day is designed to provide nurses from the acute hospital setting with the knowledge to manage patients with respiratory conditions. This is necessary as nursing services are now delivered in an environment involving greater complexity and increasing levels of technology. Nurses may have to intervene promptly in response to sudden changes in a patient’s respiratory status. Aim: This study day aims to provide an opportunity for nurses to update their knowledge, skills and understanding of respiratory assessment, problems and interventions to provide quality nursing care to patients. Objectives: At the end of the study day the nurse will be able to • Carry out respiratory assessment. • Discuss the causes, signs and symptoms of respiratory problems. • Discuss and recognise compromised respiratory function. • Manage patients who require respiratory support.
