Posted in city of fremantle, covid-19, education, health, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on April 26, 2020

 

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.

If you are interested in enrolling for this program, register now.
* 4-7 May registration
* 18-21 May registration
* 2-5 June registration
* 15-18 June registration

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.
For more information on the free online CPD courses, visit the Notre Dame website or the links below to go directly to the course pages.

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.

NDA

 

I bumped into Notre Dame University Pro Vice Chancellor Julian Smith yesterday morning who gave me the good news that the old Mariners Chapel on High Street, that was used as a computer room by NDA, will be converted into a small art gallery for architecture students to show their creations, but it will also be made available to local artists to exhibit once NDA has installed a professional art hanging system and lighting, so stay tuned!

PERTH WANTS WHAT FREMANTLE ALREADY HAS

 

700_9687

 

It is interesting to note that while a small group of Freo people do not like Notre Dame University in Fremantle’s historic West End the biggest retailers and property owners in Perth have called for more residential apartments and a big university for the inner city there to boost trade and stop the decline in retail.

Many cafes in Freo’s CBD would not survive without the patronage of NDA students and staff and the vibrancy it brings to the West End during the day should not be underestimated.

That does not mean there is no room for improvement and Notre Dame really needs to get serious about providing student accommodation so that more of them will live in Fremantle and become a real part of our community.

The new masterplan they are developing might be a good way forward to activate the street level of NDA buildings and open the courtyards for more community events.
