Comfort Measures for L & D Nurses
Are you an L & D nurse who wishes you had more tools in your toolbox to help keep patients comfortable during labor?
By attending this Comfort Measures Workshop for Labor and Delivery Nurses, you will not only get hands-on practice with comfort measures skills, but you'll also learn how you can overcome barriers to providing comfort measures on your unit! All nurses who register at the Professional level or higher will earn 3 nursing contact hours, and those who register as Super Users will receive a Comfort Measures Toolkit to take back to your unit and show to your peers.
Upcoming Comfort Measures Workshops:
155 Washington Ave
ALbany, NY 12210
11am - 2pm
4pm - 7 pm:
---> Early Bird Ticket rates through 6/28! Limited Seats Available!
Registration Options Early Bird (Standard June 29 - July 12)):
Basic Ticket $45 ($70)- audit only (no contact hours)
Professional Ticket $70 ($95)-- certificate for 3 nursing contact hours
Super User Ticket $115 ($145)-- certificate for 3 nursing contact hours, lanyard and flash drive loaded with the “Comfort Measures Teaching Toolkit” that includes lesson plans and handouts with permission to teach lessons to your peers, 30 day free trial to the Professional Membership at Evidence Based Birth® with access to 24 additional contact hours, and a laminated “Pocket Guide to Comfort Measures”
Additional info about the "Super User" ticket: We are encouraging each local hospital to sponsor at least two nurses to become Comfort Measures Super Users! Your Nurse Super Users will be able to teach their peers how comfort measures can decrease the Cesarean rate, decrease patient pain levels, and increase patient satisfaction. Having at least 2 nurses trained as Super Users will make it easier for them to demonstrate to the other L & D nurses on their unit what they learned at the workshop.
Super Users will receive a Comfort Measures Toolkit on a flash drive, which will be loaded with:
Lesson plans on:
Sending patients home in early labor
Hydrotherapy for pain relief during labor
Positive language that decreases patient pain perception
Upright positions during labor for improving birth outcomes
Full-length printer-friendly PDFs with the Evidence on Fetal Monitoring, Birthing Positions, Eating and Drinking during Labor, and Protecting the Perineum
One-page handouts to share with patients covering: Birthing Affirmations, Birthing Positions, Comfort Measures in Early Labor, Eating and Drinking during Labor, Fetal Monitoring, and Nitrous Oxide
