JOINT COMMISSION INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS AND BEST PRACTICES

 

This is a 40-hour seminar-workshop that aims to promote specific improvements in patient safety by introducing and updating the nursing professionals and undergraduates to the International Patient Safety Goals (IPSG). The Goals highlight problematic areas in health care and describe evidence and expert-based solutions to these problems. Recognizing that sound system design is intrinsic to the delivery of safe, high quality health care, the Goals focus on system-wide solutions wherever possible.

Sessions and activities are designed to acclimatize participants to the culture of patient safety. Understanding these Goals and integration of its standards into the nursing practice is a colossal step towards keeping pace with the dynamic changes in health care delivery systems both in the local and international setting, making each participant a true globally competitive nurse.

Peri-Operative Nursing

 

This is a 40-hour theory and skill-based training program divided into two parts namely Perioperative Nursing I and Perioperative Nursing II.

Perioperative Nursing I is a 16-hour course designed to prepare the trainees in their actual exposure in the operating room. Since the operating room is a highly restricted area, it is critical for the nurses to understand the basic principles and skills in the operating room environment. The knowledge and skills they will acquire in this preparatory course are necessary for them to successfully and safely fulfill their responsibilities in assisting a patient preoperatively.

The second part of the course is Perioperative Nursing II, a 24-hour skill-based course designed to prepare the trainees in their actual exposure in the operating room in assisting to different kinds of surgeries as a scrub/instrument nurse and as circulating nurse and will be able to handle surgery patient postoperatively by acquiring the knowledge and skills of post operative responsibilities. The knowledge and skills they will acquire in this course are necessary for them to successfully and safely fulfill their responsibilities in the operating room and in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU). Furthermore, the trainees will be able to experience hands-on training on intraoperative and postoperative care skills to a simulated patient in a controlled setting, creating a life-like surgical experience that will help improve their critical thinking skills. In addition, to protect the safety and rights of the patient during a surgical experience, the application of international standards and protocols are integrated in the lecture and evaluation tool of the course.

Objectives:

At the end of the program, the trainee/s will be able to:

  1. Define Perioperative Nursing
  2. Describe the roles of a perioperative nurse
  3. Demonstrate  effective communication skills in delivering patient care and proper collaboration with the rest of the surgical  team members
  4. Identify  the different international practices and protocols reflective of current practice to help prepare the patient for surgery
