Dangerous Finds: Poisons, Venoms & Toxins TimeOnline

Optimising patient outcome in a case of poisoning, toxicity or envenomation requires an expedient and appropriate response.

 

Are you responding to these presentations to the best of your ability? Are you equipped to objectively assess the magnitude of risk to your patient? If you feel a sense of panic when these calls come in – or if you want to be sure you’re doing everything you can – this course is for you. 
 
Join our toxicology experts as they take a comprehensive body systems approach to pharmaceutical poisonings. Overdose or accidental ingestion, knowledge of where and how pharmaceuticals have the potential to cause injury or compromise will shape your immediate response. When initial therapy can make all the difference to survival, you need to be confident in your approach to treatment.
 
Additionally, our tutors take look at toxins, venoms and poisons in the natural environment, with a particular focus on the Australian context. Covering threats from plants, animals and microbes, you’ll learn what presents an immediate threat and how to respond.  

There are few better feelings as a clinician than knowing you’ve treated a patient successfully. This is the course to help you develop the knowledge you need.
