Michelle Bibby particularly emphasises the emerging areas of antibiotic stewardship and the shaping of practice through information and education soundly grounded in ratified evidence.

Contents include:

  • Antimicrobial stewardship
  • Revision of the infection-transmission model
  • The link between constant vigilance, updated knowledge and the application of infection control principles
  • Disposable surgical equipment: which ones, and under which circumstances can these items be used?

Venous Thromboembolism

Venous Thromboembolism | Nursing Education - Lectures | Scoop.it
Description

Every year, over 50 000 people in Australia die from venous thromboembolism (VTE). Statistically, this represents more deaths than all transport accidents and falls combined. However, evidence suggests that prophylaxis is very effective in preventing the development of venous thromboembolisms, but understanding which guidelines or protocol to apply to which class of patient is critical to achieving desired outcomes. This lecture explains contemporary guidelines for Australian institutions and places particular emphasis on the correct application in clinical practice.

Contents include:

  • Pathophysiology of venous thromboembolism
  • Recognising the need for primary prevention in all at-risk elderly patients or residents
  • Evidence based standards for prophylactic management
  • Nursing care and management guidelines
