0830-0930 Keynote: Anne Evans-Murray

Recognition of Workplace Violence and impact on targets.

Anne Evans-Murray is a Registered Counsellor who specializes in workplace violence. The presentation will discuss the common behaviours of a workplace bully and examine why the ‘Bully’ is often protected in the system and promoted.  The presenter will also discuss the difference between aggression and bullying, examining narcissism in the workforce. This is essential knowledge for all nurses, especially those in positions of management and for any nurse who has been the target of bullying in the workplace. Anne will examine the profile of the bully and discuss the effects on the target. A large proportion of bullying behavior is unrecognized and the target can be blamed for the situation. Unfortunately for anyone targeted in a bullying case, it leads to the nurse feeling incompetent and confused which profoundly affects their self-esteem and patient care.  This presentation may be challenging for any nurse who has been bullied, but understanding can assist with healing. Recognition assists with dealing with it and helps with healing

Long QT interval Syndrome

In this presentation there will be an examination of the Emergency Nurse’s role in the recognition of LQTS, and monitoring of a patient with this disorder. The presenter will discuss sudden cardiac death, and aborted cardiac arrest in youth and how it has the potential to be misdiagnosed as epilepsy or syncope. Gaining knowledge of the two classifications of LQT interval syndrome; Hereditary and Acquired will be addressed. Understanding of Acquired LQTS is essential for the advanced nurse in the emergency department. This ensures expert monitoring of a patient after an antidepressant drug overdose and intervention of a deteriorating patient with a prolonged QT interval.
