The University of Notre Dame Australia has announced the release of a four-day online course for Registered Nurses looking to upskill, develop and refresh their knowledge of pathophysiology and pharmacology, and relate this to the management of people experiencing illness.

All courses from the School of Nursing and Midwifery are developed and delivered by experienced clinicians and academics ensuring materials and content are current and future focused. There is a strong emphasis on critical thinking, clinical reasoning, technical and leadership skills throughout the curriculum, ensuring graduates are industry-ready for the 21st century and the unique circumstances we currently face as a society.

This new program costs just $880 and is delivered over 4 days, with a total of 36 hours of structured online study, including one-hour daily contact with our academic staff via Zoom live sessions. The program is available in four separate sessions over the coming months.

* 4-7 May
* 18-21 May
* 2-5 June
* 15-18 June

The main content areas covered in the program include person-centred care, clinical assessment and care planning, national health priorities, mental health assessment and management, and general nursing skills.

Participants will be awarded a certificate of completion at the end of the program and will be able to apply critical thinking and clinical reasoning to case scenarios, demonstrate competence in advanced medication calculations, integrate knowledge of pathophysiology and pharmacology to complex care, synthesise theory and practice in clinical psychomotor skills, recognise and respond to clinical deterioration, understand the role of the multidisciplinary team for effective communication and management of the patient, and use current evidence and research when making judgements and decisions about clinical care.

South Metropolitan TAFE is replacing all the rusted corrugated iron sheets at the buildings along Fleet and Slip streets in Fremantle Ports.

I hope they will restore the old wooden window frames and not swap them for metal ones.

Especially in Slip Street the old buildings are a favourite backdrop for wedding and portrait photography.

NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY FREE UPSKILL FOR COVID CARE

Posted in city of fremantle, covid-19, education, health, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on April 6, 2020

 

 University of Notre Dame Australia’s School of Nursing & Midwifery is launching FREE online continuing professional development (CPD) short courses for any healthcare professional looking to refresh and upskill themselves in the management of the critically ill patient.

Developed and presented by an expert nurse in critical care Dr Steven Hardman, the two courses will cover key strategies for healthcare professionals to use while faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, including detecting and responding to acute clinical deterioration, respiratory assessment, oxygenation and basic ventilation strategies.
Healthcare professionals are at the front line of the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic and facing unprecedented numbers of patients requiring intensive care. In Australia, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases rose above 5,000 this Friday 3 April, with an expectation that this number will continue to rise in the coming weeks.
Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are looking ahead to an uncertain future and Notre Dame wants to offer our support and specialist thought leadership as a resource for all to draw from. The Fremantle School of Nursing & Midwifery courses are delivered by experienced clinicians and academics ensuring materials and content are current and future focused.

Participants of these courses will come away with a renewed understanding of what to look for in deteriorating patients, build confidence in responding to the key markers of deterioration, and how to communicate and work effectively as a team.

Dr Hardman said many healthcare professionals are feeling nervous about what is coming in the next weeks and months and are crying out for any extra knowledge to give them a step up in the treatment of patients with COVID-19.
“These courses will help you,” Dr Hardman said, “they will add to your existing knowledge, give you the latest advice and information, and it’s completely free.
“We are here to help and support you during this time of crisis.”

The two courses will take place on Friday 24 April and Friday 1 May from 9am to 12pm and require registration to gain access to the online webinar. Undertaking this course counts as 8 CPD hours.

NOTRE DAME UNI GOES FULLY ON LINE

Posted in city of fremantle, education, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on March 20, 2020

 

More bad news for our Fremantle cafes and traders, with the news that Fremantle Notre Dame University will go fully on-line from next week, which means students will no longer have to come to Fremantle, which will have a big impact on the cafes in the West End.

University staff will still be coming to the Freo campus, but the vibrant activation the students bring to our city will be missed for the time being, until the coronavirus is no longer a threat.

It is O(rientation) Day at Fremantle Notre Dame University today, and it always brings a vibrant buzz to the West End when hundreds of new students start their studies.

There was the traditional parade through town with a drum band, live music, information stalls and food, and a really good vibe.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt walked side by side with the new Vice Chancellor Francis Campbell, who started at NDA this week.

Posted in city of fremantle, education, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on February 10, 2020

 

Professor Francis Campbell started  as the University of Notre Dame’s fourth Vice-Chancellor, since its inception in 1989, beginning his first full day on campus in Fremantle.

He was appointed to the position in March 2019 and spent the rest of the year concluding his appointment as Vice- Chancellor of St Mary’s University in London.

NDA needed a new VC after Celia Hammond left to take up a career in politics and is now a member of the Federal Liberal party in Canberra

Professor Campbell brings a wealth of experience to Notre Dame, drawing on his deep understanding of higher education, and a practical knowledge of the value and importance of holistic education.

His extensive tertiary qualifications include Master of International Relations from the University of Pennsylvania in the USA, where he held a Thouron Fellowship, and Master of European Integration from the Katholieke Universiteit of Leuven in Belgium. He has received honorary doctorates from five universities worldwide and is an Honorary Fellow at St Edmund’s College, Cambridge University.

Apart from academia, Professor Campbell has an immense diversity of experience, which includes serving as Ambassador of the United Kingdom to the Holy See, and as Private Secretary and Adviser to former Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Professor Campbell said he had been looking forward to joining Notre Dame:

“It is a huge privilege and honour to join The University of Notre Dame Australia as the University’s fourth Vice- Chancellor. I am excited at the opportunity, and to be joining such a wonderful team of highly committed and talented people. Notre Dame Australia is a vibrant, modern and growing University which draws on centuries of tradition of learning and wisdom.

“Notre Dame’s reputation among Australian universities is exemplary and I’m committed to protecting and nurturing its outstanding achievements.

The North Fremantle Primary School is having an Open Day this Sunday from 10am till 12 noon, so it is a very short ‘open day’ and more an open lunchtime event.

It coincides with the annual North Freo Cake Bake, so enjoy the cakes and coffee and all the fun.
