Nurses for Nurses CPD Travel

Synopsis

Skin tears & pressure injuries are some of the most prevalent wounds we encounter particularly when looking after an older population. Whether you are a carer or clinician, skin management is an essential part of your care management and should be a team approach!

In this workshop we will explore skin tears and why they are prevalent in older, frail skin and introduce the ISTAP classification. You will also participate in an interactive workshop looking at first aid for skin tears.

Do you know the difference between a pressure injury and incontinence associated dermatitis? This workshop will also explore pressure injuries – classification, causes and management and will identify the differences between PI’s and incontinence associated dermatitis.

Turtle Encounter

From November through to January, it is an amazing sight to see these huge creatures heaving their way up the beach to find a safe spot to dig a nest and lay their eggs. And then, some 6-8 weeks later (generally between January to March), you can witness the tiny hatchlings emerging from their sandy nests to scurry down the beach towards the sea.

Aged Care Fundamentals | Gold Coast 2022

Louise is not only amazing, engaging and captivating speakers but her knowledge is extensive, relevant and up to date. What a privilege to have met her. Having the medical reps present their products, some having fun with interactive games, and then answer questions was unique and relevant, I hope this will be an ongoing format.
