Safe Zone Training (006)

Healthcare professionals are now interacting with more members of the LGBTQ+ community in their practices. How comfortable are you with engaging your patients and their families in conversations regarding sexuality and gender? Do you know and understand the current words and definitions used by the LGTBQ+ community? Do you understand what an ally is?  Can you describe the differences between diversity and inclusion? During this session, Teresa will lead discussions on these topics and help engage in activities that will allow you to reflect on your own knowledge and thoughts around your LGBTQ+ patients and families. At the end of this session, you will be “Safe Zone” trained. Teresa will also explore how you can bring about change in your institution to increase inclusion and provide better patient and family experiences. Read more...

Translating Evidence into Practice: A Workshop Providing Mentorship, Collaboration, and Support to Assist in Implementation of EBP/QI Projects (003)

Evidence-based practice (EBP), quality improvement (QI), and research are fundamental to the nursing profession’s ability to remain relevant and up-to-date in an ever-changing and complex healthcare environment. The American Nurses Association (ANA) considers scholarly inquiry one of the essential features in the “advancement of professional nursing practice”.



The Three C's Challenge — Crucial and Compassionate Conversations (005)

Communication is an integral part of all nursing interactions. It is the way we give and receive information to guide patient care, decision making and respond to difficult situations. Challenging and crucial conversations happen when stakes are high, opinions vary and emotions are strong. When this occurs, we have an opportunity to engage compassionately with our patients and each other. Our responses in these challenging situations will effect outcomes, both positively and negatively. Developing a toolkit of ways to critically examine the facts, emotions, communication patterns and responses will enable nurses to respond compassionately to facilitate information exchange in effective ways and mitigate our own emotions in crucial conversations. This pre conference will provide an opportunity to learn and practice practical communication skills to support patients and families and as well as each other.
