Up Your Assessment: Maximize Critical Patient Information in Minimum Time.
Your work in emergency services involves making critical decisions with little information in a short amount of time. How can you obtain the most important patient information in the time you have? How can you sort through this information to identify key decision points? This presentation explains the step-by-step method to rapidly gather the information that you’ll need to best identify priority problems and the strategies to manage them so that you can better care for your patients.
Learning Objectives: Attendees will be able to:
– Prioritize patient assessment to find critical problems early and begin addressing them even as assessment continues.
– Utilize the patient’s CHART to narrow a differential diagnosis
– Rapidly and effectively hand off key information to other emergency responders and hospital personnel without either leaving out key details or overwhelming them with low priority information.
