The world's largest faculty of nursing”
With this intensive program you will be able to explain the biomarkers used in the clinical diagnosis of infectious diseases"
Infectious Diseases are a basic pillar of healthcare both in terms of individual health and public health worldwide. Today, for example, we can see how COVID 19 infection is revolutionizing the entire world, involving all healthcare professionals who, in one way or another, may have contact with the coronavirus.
Nurses are professionals who are on the front line in the care of any pathology, and in the case of infections, it could not be otherwise. Therefore, they need to have a broadly up-to-date knowledge of new developments in the care of patients with different types of infections. One of the main reactions of these pathologies is fever and its correct management becomes essential to achieve the patient's improvement.
As in most specialties, in the case of infectious pathology, the performance of the clinician in the Emergency Department is sometimes complex and, on many occasions, decisive in the morbidity and mortality of patients. Therefore, it is essential to establish updating tools for health professionals who have to deal with Infectious Diseases outside specialized units and services.
Specifically, this program includes classic aspects in the management of infectious pathology by apparatus or organs, incorporating new items for a correct management of Infectious Diseases in the current scenario of globalization of health. An important part of the program covers the concept of prevention of risks derived from the care of Infectious Diseases for both healthcare personnel and the population, going deeper into the measures that can be adopted in Emergency Departments to minimize them. In addition, there will be a space to learn about the current profiles of the population that most frequently attends Emergency Departments, in which the delay in action can mean a significant variability in the prognosis: multi-pathological, immunosuppressed, institutionalized, onco-hematological, etc. patients. The student will also be able to learn about pediatric pathology with this Postgraduate Diploma
On the other hand, being a 100% on line training, the professional will have the ability to decide when and from where to study, without commitments or obligations, thus being able to combine their study time with the rest of their daily obligations.
