Clinical Decision Making in Support Surface Selection
If you are a nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, physician or physician's assistant, then the following CE course will help you identify the right support surface at the right time for your patients.
The WOCN® Society is now offering an interactive course that provides information and clinical guidance on the benefits of using the Society's evidence- and consensus-based Support Surface Algorithm when selecting a support surface for individual patients in different care settings.
The Right Support Surface for the Right Patient at the Right Time
1. 00 Contact Hour
During this course, you will have the opportunity to learn how this web-based algorithm can be used by the bedside clinician using any mobile electronic device, such as a smartphone, tablet or computer. You will have the opportunity to practice using the algorithm with well-designed case scenarios.
If your facility already uses HealthStream, the course can be found under the CE Center. We encourage you to share this with others at your facility and recommend to your nursing leadership that they assign the course to all staff nurses.
In addition to the CE course, the Society will rebroadcast a popular symposium on the Support Surface Algorithm that was originally presented at the 49th Annual Conference.
The rebroadcast will take place Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 1:00 pm ET, and will feature a live Q&A period with the presenters as well as award 1.5 Contact Hours upon successful completion of the session. The rebroadcast is free to members and non-members. Register Now.
