In this conference, we will explore modules one, five, six, and seven. The content of each module stands alone as a continuing professional development (CPD) activity and the completion of each module will be awarded a CPD Certificate as evidence of the education activity. There is a total of 26 CPD hours allocated in this Conference program.

The Carnival Spirit has a dedicated conference venue where the conference will be held during the days we are at sea. Travel with your family and friends – while you are attending an exceptional Nursing Conference they can explore the ship and get involved in onboard activities. Then each day after the conference sessions you can kick back and relax with them – what a great way to mix your need to keep up to date with best practice Nursing education and spend time with your family and friends in a spectacular location.

The Presenter: Cheryl Dezotti

Nursing Event

Cheryl Dezotti is a Director, a Nurse Education Consultant, and a Wound Care Specialist at the Nurses for Nurses Network. Cheryl co-created and administers this Network to provide an online platform for Nurses to meet their continuing professional development requirements. She is also the editor, and major contributor, of the Nursing News Blog associated with this Network.

Cheryl has worked extensively in the field of wound care management over the last 30 years. This passion for wound care has seen her lecture widely on the topic both in Australia and internationally and has led her to author a wound assessment book, multiple wound management documents, as well as creating a postgraduate wound care course.

Recently Cheryl has launched the Nurses for Nurses Wound Assessment Tool that was created based on her extensive experience in the field and her continued interaction with nursing colleagues, mentoring and assisting them to achieve the best possible wound management outcome for their clients. Cheryl continues her research into best practice wound assessment by overseeing a trial of the assessment tool in multiple clinical settings.

As an author, Cheryl’s aim is to provide the reader information that can be easily and practically applied in the clinical setting. As a presenter, Cheryl is known for her ability to deliver the complexities of wound management in a straightforward and easily understood format that allows attendees to easily apply the content to their individual clinical practice.

Cheryl’s aim is to make a difference to the recipients of health care and she believes that a positive outcome for the patient can only be achieved if Nurses keep up to date with best practice guidelines and their practical application in the workplace.
