Italian Nursing Session

Il congresso TOBI 2016 si pone l’obiettivo di rispondere alle esigenze formative dei partecipanti che quotidianamente lavorano nei laboratori di cardiologia ed emodinamica pertanto anche l’assistenza infermieristica ha la necessità di evolversi.

Le sessioni, oltre che alla figura di infermiere professionale, sono aperte anche ai tecnici sanitari di radiologia medica e ai tecnici in fisiopatologia cardiocircolatoria e perfusione cardiovascolare e sono state concepite per essere estremamente interattive e coinvolgenti con i discenti in ogni momento didattico.

Le sessioni si pongono l’obiettivo di spiegare in modo preciso gli aspetti del nursing tecnico ad un pubblico che si prende cura di pazienti colpiti da lesioni coronariche complesse, in particolare modo biforcazioni e occlusioni croniche.
