Are you an L&D nurse who wishes you had more tools in your toolbox to help keep patients comfortable during labor?

About this event

By attending Comfort Measures 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 3.5 nursing contact hours, and those who register as Super Users will receive a Comfort Measures Toolkit to take back to your unit and teach to your peers. Come enjoy a morning of demonstrations, discussion, and networking with L & D nurses from all over the world!

This Comfort Measures Workshop is taught by Evidence Based Birth® Instructors Paula Richards MSN, RNC-OB, C-EFM and Kirsten Spencer RN, C-EFM, CLC. We designed this workshop specifically for Labor and Delivery nurses who are looking to add to their labor support knowledge and skills. However, local doulas, midwives, and childbirth educators are also encouraged to register!

Location: Online Zoom

***PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WORKSHOP IS COMPLETELY ONLINE AND IT WILL TAKE PLACE LIVE. YOU MUST ATTEND THE LIVE EVENT. THERE WILL BE NO REPLAY***

Contact hours : By attending this workshop and completing an evaluation and quiz, registrants at the Professional or Super User ticket level will earn a certificate for 3.5 nursing contact hours from Evidence Based Birth®, a continuing education provider for the Kentucky Board of Nursing #7-0081. Nursing contact hours can also be applied to most childbirth educator and doula certifications.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES FOR THE COMFORT MEASURES WORKSHOP:

-Discuss the evidence on comfort measures

-Demonstrate a variety of comfort measures

-Discuss how we can overcome barriers to providing comfort measures

REGISTRATION OPTIONS:

- Basic Ticket [$50 early bird/$65 regular admission]-- audit only (no contact hours)

- Professional Ticket [$75 early bird/$99 regular admission]-- certificate for 3.5 nursing contact hours

- Super User Ticket [$125 early bird/$149 regular admission]-- certificate for 3.5 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. Excellent for climbing the clinical ladder!

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
