Nursing Workshop

Once again the amazing Professor Kate Curtis will be performing an Emergency Nursing Workshop during DevelopingEM 2022 Darwin.

Kate is an RN at Wollongong ED, Professor of Emergency and Trauma Nursing at the University of Sydney, Director of Emergency Research, Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District and honorary Professorial fellow at the George Institute for Global Health.

Kate’s translational research program focuses on improving the way we deliver care and has attracted $10 million funding.

Kate has mentored more than 50 clinicians in research projects and was the 2019 Australian nurse of the year.

The first half of the nursing workshop focusses on the HIRAID emergency nursing assessment framework with the afternoon having a more practical skill based format.

HIRAID is the only evidence based  emergency nursing assessment framework in the world, which is known to improve emergency nursing clinical assessment and communication.

Read about what HIRAID is, and the significant impact it can have on patient and health service outcomes here. Or, watch this short video.

The second half of the day will focus on useful practical methods to get a practical or research project up and running in your own department.

Just bring your idea along to the workshop and leave with a clear plan (or you could just work on how to implement HIRAID in your ED).

This workshop will help you do this by walking you through the process of how to get started, refining your processes, designing the implementation for maximum success and sustainability, and how to measure the impact of your project.

Kate has organised numerous in department projects, published extensively as a result, and so is in a unique position to mentor delegates interested in producing practice changing projects and research.

This workshop is scheduled for September 27, 2022 and is free for interested nursing delegates. Numbers are strictly limited to 28 so sign up now to make sure you reserve yourself a place with Kate and her team.

We look forward to seeing you at DevelopingEM 2022.
