  • Description

    This course delves into holistic nursing techniques for veterinary nurses, appreciating patients as an individual with specific needs. Through appraisal and adaptation of techniques used within the NHS, veterinary nurses will be empowered to leverage their knowledge and expertise to run an effective inpatient unit, advocate for their patients and promote patient safety.

    Delegates will be given the opportunity to build confidence in the early detection of the deteriorating patient, learn communication skills to support interdisciplinary communication and develop a clear comprehension of how caring in a holistic manner can optimise patient care and professional development.

    By the end of the course, veterinary nurses will be equipped with the skills and confidence to nurse their patients holistically, providing evidence based and compassionate care to support their patients, their team, the business and the veterinary nursing profession.

     

    Topics to be covered include:

    • One Health -  how and why using a One Health approach improves patient care
    • Holistic nursing - what is it and is it relevant to our patients?
    • Implementing nursing care plans and care bundles to veterinary patients - how can these tools support clinical outcomes?
    • Communication skills - why effective communication is the key to inpatient care
    • Time management while on the ward shift
    • Early Detection of the deteriorating patient
