Date: Thursday March 17th, 2016
Time: 12:00 PT, 13:00 MT, 14:00 CT 15:00 ET, 16:00 AT, 16:30 NL
Presenter: Jocelyn Reimer-Kent, RN, MN, Reimer-Kent Consulting
To register: email Kathryn at kathryn@cccn.ca

This harsh reality is attributed to congestive heart failure that comes from incompetence of a normal, defective, or prosthetic valve, or from destruction of the heart itself. Unfortunately, diagnosis and treatment may be delayed.

Nurses play a pivotal role in the prevention, early recognition, diagnostic work-up, and prompt, effective treatment of this devastating disease and its complications.

By transferring current knowledge into practice, nurses will be better able to plan, implement, and evaluate the care needed by this unique and challenging patient population.  Read more...
