Nursecom's Courses and Workshops

Nursecom offers several classroom courses and workshops for critical care professionals and educators. While Nursecom does occasionally contract its courses directly to various organizations, most courses and workshops are offered through Global Medical Services Ltd. The Dynamic Trainer Workshop and the Standard First Aid courses are also offered through Healthpoint Institute Inc.

The Six Second ECG Workshop

This 1-day intensive hands-on workshop serves as an excellent introduction to ECG interpretation for novices and as a refreshing review for experienced providers. The Six Second ECG employs a quick and simple system to rapidly interpret static and dynamic ECG's. Exercises and discussions foster an understanding of the cardiac system and the significance of various ECG's with regards to cardiac output.

A pre-reading package (The Six Second ECG Guidebook) and interactive learning software are provided to each participant. Course objectives include the ability to identify ECG's in 6 seconds or less and understand the significance of each rhythm. Electrocardiogram interpretation is a vital core skill for all health care providers in critical care settings.   back to the top

The 12 Lead ECG Workshop

The 12 Lead ECG 1 day workshop is a comprehensive introduction to the 12 lead ECG. It is a logical next step from the Six Second ECG Workshop. This workshop springboards from the content addressed in the Six Second ECG Workshop, quickly moving into the 12+ lead views, and the application of the 12 lead ECG to assess for cardiac ischemia, myocardial infarctions, chamber hypertrophies, bundle branch blocks, and electrolyte imbalances.

A pre-reading package (The Six Second ECG Guidebook) and interactive learning software are provided to each participant. Practice exercises reinforce the 12 lead ECG skills and methods throughout the day.  back to the top

Nursecom's is dedicated to creating rich learning experiences that fit the learner's needs. A rich learning experience:

  • is effective (performance is improved)
  • is efficient (occurs over the shortest period possible, focusing only on the 'need to know')

Our courses and learning tools are fashioned to facilitate a rich learning experience. Our courses and workshops are designed with emphasis on Bandura's learning theory, Roger's Diffusion theory, Csikszentmihalyi's Flow theory as well as a host of other influences (i.e. Gardner's Multiple Intelligences).
