Saving Lives: Improving Cardiac Resuscitation
These educational webinars, which are free and accredited, are designed to improve CPR quality through evidence-based strategies and solutions. The series highlight actionable information that can make a difference to all hospital team members involved in resuscitation, including nurses, respiratory therapists and physicians. Nicole Kupchik, MN, RN, CCNS, CCRN, PCCN-CMC, CSC will be a featured speaker in each episode along with other industry leaders in the field.
What Top Performing Hospitals Do to Improve Cardiac Arrest Survival – March 27, 2019 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM PDT
Currently, the nationwide survival rate for an in-patient cardiac arrest event is only 25%. Opportunities exist for hospitals to improve the cardiac arrest team’s performance and survival rate based on the 2018 American Heart Association (AHA) published Get with the Guidelines (GWTG) Cardiac Resuscitation Registry. The guidelines, derived from resuscitation data from hospitals nationwide, examined protocols and processes the top, middle, and bottom quartile hospitals have in place for cardiac arrest response. In-depth interviews were conducted at the facilities with physicians, nurses, administration and other support staff. Not surprising, top performing hospitals had major commonalities. This webinar will discuss what contributes to a top performing hospital resuscitation rate and how it can be implemented in other facilities.

Overcoming the Fear of CPR: Ways to Improve High-Quality Resuscitation Training
Even trained healthcare professionals can lack confidence in their ability to deliver CPR, often resulting in fear or avoidance of Mock Codes. In this webinar we are joined by consultant and educator, Nicole Kupchik, who will share best practices for overcoming obstacles in resuscitation training to ensure your workforce is confident and capable in delivering high-quality CPR. The discussion will tackle pressing issues with pauses, chest compression fraction, defibrillation events, over-ventilation and more—equipping your organization for improved outcomes.

Initiatives In Safe Patient Care
Early Warning Scoring (EWS) systems provide a commonly understood way to recognize the degree of deterioration in a patient’s status, and can ensure that every patient is seen at the right time by the right person. The EWS is based on the collection of a combination of vital signs including heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, blood pressure and body temperature. In this webinar, there will a discussion of the benefits, variations and strategies for overcoming barriers to successful implementation of EWS in hospitals.
