ACUTE CARDIAC CARE COURSE - 9.00 am to 4.30 pm
COURSE DELIVERY DATES:
The course is delivered in intensive mode over 5 days and is equivalent to a 10CP (or one semester) tertiary course in teaching and study time.
These courses have previously been held twice annually on the Gold Coast. Many of enrolments are from undergraduate nursing students, as well as registered nurses and paramedics who want to do the courses for professional development.
The courses will be offered by Health Ed Professionals P/Ltd three to six times per year, depending on demand. Numbers are limited.
The cardiac course is a very interesting elective for Undergraduate Nurses and all registered nurses. It has a strong clinical application. The course addresses knowledge and practical application of Advanced Life Support with the explanation of Life-threatening arrhythmias and treatment being addressed in detail. Assistance is given to all nurses on how to cope in a cardiac arrest. Very applicable for all registered and enrolled nurses.
Anne has extensive knowledge on arrhythmias and 12 Lead ECGs and she will be supported by clinical teachers from hospitals.
The number of students will be limited to a smaller number which ensures each student and registered nurses will be given support.

Evaluation comments from past students:
This course has received positive feedback from previous students for many years.
"I just loved this course. I think it should be a mandatory course at the university".
"I learnt so much, I am so excited that I am an undergraduate and I can read 12 lead ECGs and life threatening arrhythmias".
"Anne is just so passionate about the lectures, we all had such fun".
"Wish all my subjects were over a week like this, I now have less work to do next year as I used this course as an elective for my university course".
"Thanks Anne, the course was fantastic".
"I am a Registered Nurse in the Coronary Care Unit, I have learnt so much about ECGs, cardiac disorders and rhythms. I feel so much more confident at work. I also found doing the course over one week suited me better rather than over a long semester".
Really enjoyed Helen's talk on the Cath Lab.
Thanks for all your support and enthusiasm, this was the best elective!
