Are you an experienced nurse wishing to enhance your skills, knowledge and competence in the process of conducting a physical assessment for a palliative care patient? 

This ‘hands-on’ Masterclass is a must for senior nurses i.e. Clinical Nurse Specialists, Clinical Nurse Consultants, Nurse Practitioners or Nurse Practitioner Candidates. This Masterclass will be facilitated by experienced palliative care clinicians. 

Program objectives:
  • To describe the purpose and process for conducting a systematic approach to physical assessment of the palliative care patient.
  • To perform an accurate and detailed clinical assessment with a focus on abdominal and respiratory systems and the Mental State Examination.
  • To ensure documentation accurately reflects the findings of the clinical assessment, and articulates assessment outcomes.

The Physical Assessment Masterclass is a face-to-face delivery model requiring practical hands-on assessment of a patient.

All COVID safety precautions will be in place. In the event of an increase in COVID cases which necessitates the cancellation or postponement of the Masterclass, all registrants will be fully refunded.

*NOTE: Please ensure you bring a stethoscope to the Masterclass. 

Please be aware that places at this Masterclass are restricted to 21 so please book early.

Certificates with record of CPD hours will be provided 

This Masterclass will be held at the Melbourne Metropole Central Hotel, 44 Gertrude St, Fitzroy, VIC 3065.
