Upcoming Programmes

24 July Jul

CPR- BLS Healthcare Providers

24 July 2018, 08:00AM to 01:00PM
Centre for Midwifery Education

Programme Rationale:

Despite important advances in prevention, cardiac arrest remains substantial public health problem and a leading cause of death in many parts of the world. Healthcare providers need to know how to perform CPR in a wide variety of in and out of hospital settings. This course is based on the 2010 American Heart Association’s (AHA) guidelines for CPR and ECC for Healthcare providers. The changes from the A-B-C SEQUENCE to the C-A-B SEQUENCE, and the rationale behind it, is explained in detail while providing the maximum time for each participant to gain the skills of resuscitation.

Programme Philosophy:

In the Centre for Midwifery Education we commit to an andragogical approach to learning in which proactivity, enquiry and autonomy feature predominantly (Quinn 2013). As a result we acknowledge that programme participants are adult learners with existing knowledge and a wealth of experience and therefore utilise teaching strategies that encourage reflection dialogue and debate. Value is placed on the experience, expertise and ability of programme facilitators to impart evidence based knowledge and skills.

Programme Aim:

The aim of this programme is to provide to train and up-skill health care providers in CPR and BLS

Programme Rationale:

IV Medication Management is an integral aspect of clinical practice for midwives and nurses. It is vital that midwives and nurses practice safely to ensure that women and babies receive quality care (Scope of Nursing and Midwifery Practice Framework, NMBI, 2015).

Course Philosophy:

Midwives and Nurses who participate in this study day are engaging in Continuing Professional Development. In the Centre for Midwifery Education we commit to an andragogical approach to learning in which proactivity, enquiry and autonomy feature predominatly (Quinn, 2013). As a result we acknowledge that midwife/nurse participants are adult learners who have exisiting knowledge and a wealth of experience and therefore utilise teaching strategies that encourage reflection, dialogue and debate. Continuing Professional Development contributes to the maintenance and enhancement of competence and is expected of every midwife and nurse (Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Registered Midwives, NMBI 2014). Value is placed on the experience, expertise and ability of programme facilitators to impart evidence based knowledge.

Programme Aim:

This course aims to facilitate registered midwives and nurses develop their knowledge in relation to the management of intravenous medication.

Learning Outcomes:

to identify the pharmacological principles implicit in the administration of drugs by the intravenous route and the            implications for practice.

to critically appraise methods of intravenous drug administration and evaluate the management of potential        complications that may result from administering drugs by the intravenous route.

to critically analyse midwives and nurses' professional and legal responsibilities in the management and administration of drugs by the intravenous route.

Indicative Content:

Professional issues in relation to intravenous medication management.

Infection Control and Aseptic non touch technique.

Management of Anaphylaxis.

Clinical Risk and intravenous medication management.

Pharmaceutical aspects of intravenous medication management including drug calculations

Programme Rationale:

The monitoring of the fetal heart rate (FHR) in labour aims to identify hypoxia before it is sufficient to lead to long-term poor neurological outcome for babies. In Ireland the NMBI states that each midwife has a responsibility to develop and maintain on-going competence to provide safe and effective midwifery care by engaging with continuing professional development in areas relevant to their practice (Practice Standards for Midwives 2015)

Programme Philosophy:

In the Centre for Midwifery Education we commit to an andragogical approach to learning in which proactivity, enquiry and autonomy feature predominantly (Quinn 2013). As a result we acknowledge that programme participants are adult learners with existing knowledge and a wealth of experience and therefore utilise teaching strategies that encourage reflection dialogue and debate.

Value is placed on the experience, expertise and ability of programme facilitators to impart evidence based knowledge.

Programme Aim:

The aim of this programme is to provide attendees with up to date evidence on fetal heart rate monitoring.

Learning Outcomes:

On completion of this programme it is anticipated that attendees will be able to:

Critically discuss continuous versus intermittent fetal heart monitoring

Identify the features of a cardiotocograph (CTG)

Use the correct terminology to classify cardiotocograph

Demonstrate an understanding of acid base balance

Adhere to best practice when documenting CTGs

Indicative Content

K2 Intrapartum Cardiotocography and Acid Base and Fetal Physiology on-line training

Current evidence of continuous versus intermittent FH monitoring

Features and classification of cardiotocograph

Fetal physiology and acid base balance

Documentation and CTG.

This programme is based on the current IOG/HSE Clinical Practice Guideline No. 6. Version 1.2. 2012 Intrapartum Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring. ( This Guideline references the NICE Clinical Guideline 55, Intrapatum Care 2007). https://www.google.ie/search?q=IOG/HSE&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=GsB8V4H7OIfCgAaz7p6gAg#
