Cottingham Road Campus, University of Hull
9am - 5pm Tuesday 28th February 2017,
Hull York Medical School in association with Hull CCG is proud to be hosting a full day Hot Topics Primary Care Nurse course delivered by NB Medical Education.
For many years Practice Nurses and Nurse Practitioners have attended NB Medical’s extremely popular Hot Topics GP Update course. In response to requests they have now developed this one day course designed specifically with Primary Care Nurses in mind.
HYMS and NB Medical are passionate about primary care, and committed to helping busy primary care professionals practice evidence-based medicine in an easy, time efficient way. Our teaching is focused on the patient, the problems they bring us and how best we can help them.
The RCN-accredited “Hot Topics” Primary Care Nurse course consists of a series of short ‘Ted-style’ engaging presentations blending evidence and cases, followed by discussion which may have an impact on your practice. The course comes with a number of extra resources.

A one day update course by GPs for GPs, GP STs, Practice Nurses and Nurse Practitioners.
The GP Update Course is designed to be relevant to clinical practice and to help you meet the requirements for revalidation.
This course contains no theorists, no gurus and no pharma sponsors -- just real-life GPs who will be back seeing patients as soon as the course has finished. The course has been accredited by the RCGP since February 2012 and is now the only one of its type to be completely free from pharmaceutical company sponsorship.

Mindfulness is “the intentional, non-judgmental and non-reactive focus of attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment”. In recent years, mindfulness practice has been increasingly employed to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions. There is an increasing evidence base for its benefits.
This one day workshop is specifically designed for healthcare professionals in primary care who wish to use mindfulness for their own personal benefit but also to raise awareness of it as a potential support for patients. We will be exploring theory, history, evidence, techniques and daily practice of Mindfulness, emphasising its relationship to health and wellbeing.

ECG made GPeasy - 2:00pm - 5:00pm
This interactive course led by a cardiologist is open to GPs, ANPs and practice nurses and will provide an opportunity to update and re-invigorate confidence in two important areas of cardiology. The course is available as a full day while both sessions are also suitable to attend individually.
We have an ageing population often living with a range of co-morbidity including heart failure. The majority of these patients can be successfully managed in the community. The morning session will review the important principles in diagnosis and management of heart conditions, and consider recent guidance and developments in treatment. Case studies will be used to reinforce knowledge and increase clinician confidence.
Being able to identify normal and abnormal ECG findings is an essential skill in primary care but is something that can feel more challenging as time passes after hospital training posts. Using real ECG examples, the interactive afternoon will revisit the principles and practice of interpreting 12 lead ECGs as well as providing advice on subsequent management.
