ExpoEd Sessions by LIVENGOOD in Booth 1479
Tuesday and Wednesday at 11:15 AM:
“Use of a Platform for Patient Ambulation” by Lorrie Henecke and Karen Hessler
- Patient ambulation takes a significant amount of staff time and attention and poses a risk of displacing medical equipment such as catheters, chest tubes, and intravenous lines. The use of an ambulatory platform has the potential to decrease the staff burden involved with ambulating patients and secure medical equipment to one single moving platform.
Tuesday at 3:00 PM:
“Taking Care of our Patients’ Caregivers” by Tanya Kensley
- This talk will look at caregiver stress and compassion fatigue in regards to the family and friends that provide care to a sick loved one. It will discuss the signs of compassion Fatigue and stress, techniques for combating these issues and overall communication with our patient’s loved ones. The intent of this talk is to give ICU nurses another tool for their toolbox in regards to compassionate, quality nursing care.
Wednesday at 3:00 PM:
“Interdisciplinary Collaboration for Implementation of Early Mobility Programs in the ICU” by Katie Francois
- More and more evidence reveals the importance of early mobility for critically ill patients in the ICU. This is now better understood and is becoming the standard of care when following evidence-based practice. However, implementing this in everyday practice offers challenges, more now than ever, as we face higher caseloads and productivity standards. This talk will discuss different early mobility programs and collaboration ideas for interdisciplinary implementation of early mobility for patient in the ICU.
