Presenters: Ms. Trisha Coady Co-founder & President MedSenses ® Inc, www.medsenses.com Seeing the need for increased access to continuing education for nurses and the collection of evidence-based e-learning practices in healthcare, MedSenses was born. With a clinical background in coronary, addictions, pediatrics, neonatal & flight nursing, she has authored hundreds of hours of clinically relevant e-learning courseware. Having built & delivered training both at the University & Institutional education levels, Trisha brings a qualified approach to how we, as nurses, learn. Trisha has spent the last eight years of her career researching e-learning strategies and how these may be modified or applied to our community of nurses around the globe. Acting as a primary clinical advisor to many technology & publishing firms throughout North America, she has written, been published, and presented numerous times on a healthcare-specific e-learning model, blending social media & learning, critical thinking & advanced web-based simulation in Nursing. Trisha hopes the payoff will be offering hospital administrators with qualified tools in providing their staff with greater job satisfaction & sense of value; she believes that education is the key to a higher quality healthcare environment. Improving Outcomes Using Peer networks & Simulation Patient outcomes rely heavily on both the knowledge and experience of the healthcare professionals that surround them. In these days of greater patient to nurse ratios, undermanned emergency rooms, rural practice facilities having equal access to information, and limited education budgets, knowledge and experience are even more difficult to obtain. This presentation will discuss how an individual or institution might mitigate these challenges and improve patient outcomes by leveraging existing technologies; more specifically engaging in peer mentorship networks and integrating self-directed learning and simulations into our continuing education routines. *Access to a FREE wed-based Emergency Response Simulation will be given to all attendees!* Terri Kean Terri has been a registered nurse for 25 year. She has spent the majority of her career working in Intensive & Emergency care areas both here at home and in the United States. She is currently working as a nurse practitioner in diabetes care at the Saint John Regional Hospital A Woman’s Heart During this session, the atypical presentation of women with heart disease will be discussed. The review of pertinent signs and symptoms will enable health care providers to better assess female patients presenting with heart disease. The use of case studies will strengthen the learnings of the session and prepare participants to better advocate for their female patients.

Jeri Zinck Is a registered nurse currently working for South Shore Health as the team leader in the emergency department. Jeri’s career has spanned a multitude of nursing environments and she actually spent the beginning part of her career nursing in Miami. Upon her return to Canada, she worked in Halifax and then came to South shore Health where she has been working for over thirty years. Jeri has a tremendous amount of nursing experience, the majority of which has been obtained in the emergency department environment. She is a graduate of the critical care program and has worked in numerous leadership capacities throughout her career. She has also devoted a considerable amount of time to the orientation package for novice nurses in the emergency department.

She is a strong believer in life long learning as evidenced by her support for staff education and development. Dr. Rose McCloskey Is a nursing Professor at the University of New Brunswick, Saint John and also works on a casual basis as a staff nurse in the Emergency Room at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Her research interests are acute illness and hospitalization of older adults, particular nursing home residents in the emergency room.

She is originally from Cape Breton Nova Scotia but now resides in Quispamsis with her husband and their two daughters. The presentation will share findings from a study on resident transfers between a nursing home and an ER in Atlantic Canada. Observations were made of how ER transfer decisions were made in one nursing home. Residents were also accompanied on their transfers, including the ambulance transport to and from the ER, and their entire ER visit. Particular attention was paid to how information was transferred between sites and how staff interacted across sites. This presentation will highlight some of the key findings of this study and will provide recommendations for improving resident transfers and to ensure more appropriate use of precious ER resources. Ali Pishe Ali Pishe is a Nurse Practitioner at St. Joseph’s Urgent Care Centre and also works as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner and Project Coordinator for the greater Saint John Sexual Assault Response Team. Her background is in Emergency Nursing where she first encountered victims of sexual assault. Ali has an interest in women’s health and equality issues, and since 2005 she has been dedicated to improving the community based response to sexual assault in the greater Saint John area. Implementing a Sexual Assault Response Team: A Community Effort Sexual Assault Response Teams have been a successful solution to care and service delivery, addressing the physical and psychosocial needs of victims acutely and over the long-term. No one agency can successfully handle all aspects of a sexual assault. Collaboration among community partners is necessary and strengthens the response of each individual agency, ultimately benefitting the victim. The SART model is an exciting and innovative service delivery model aiming to provide victims of sexual assault the care and support they deserve.

Health & Literacy: What Every Nurse Should Know The 2003 International Adult Literacy & Skills Survey (IALSS) reported that 55% of the New Brunswick population, and 68% of the francophone population, 16 and over, presented literacy scores that are below what is required to function in today’s society. A low literacy skill population faces numerous difficulties to access health services and health related information. This is compelling and hints to the necessity for Nurses to review their professional practice.

Overcrowding in the ED – One Hospital’s Plight I must admit, the topic of overcrowding has become a bit of a passion of mine (as many of the fellow ED Nurse Managers in the Province can attest to!!) It is an issue that can totally encompass an Emergency Department, yet has many ramifications that reach well beyond the walls of the ED. The presentation will give a bit of an overview on where the “Overcrowding Phenomena” is today, and go through some of the steps that our ED has taken in an attempt to combat this dilemma. I will also share some of the pitfalls and some of the successes that we have realized bring the audience up to speed on where we are today and what some of our “future initiative” will be in regards to Overcrowding in the ED. Time will be offered at the end to field any questions that may arise.
