Saint Clare’s Hospital and Synergy HomeCare will host "From Ordinary to Extraordinary – Taking Patient Care to the Next Level, A Long Term Care Symposium," a seminar designed specifically for registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, certified case managers and other healthcare professionals, on Friday, Dec. 6, 7:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at Saint Clare’s Hospital, Urban Auditorium, 25 Pocono Rd. in Denville.

"The symposium will provide a day of professional seminars designed to challenge clinical staff to take their practice to the next level," stated Grace Carcich, Operations Manager, Education Services at Saint Clare’s Health System.

"A variety of multi-disciplinary expert speakers will actively engage each participant by providing them with the knowledge base and confidence to question the norm, break-down barriers, and confront what has always been accepted," said Cheryl Beers, Director of Education Services at Saint Clare’s Health System. "Healthcare is rapidly changing; the status quo can no longer be considered optimal care."

Individual seminars will include: Sepsis - Early Recognition, Early Intervention; Strategies for Suicide Risk: Assessment & Intervention; Oxygenation/Care for the Caregiver; Polypharmacy - How Much Medication is Too Much; Bullying in the Workplace; Spirituality in End of Life; and Skinsational Care. CE credits or Certificates of Completion of Program may be earned.

Synergy HomeCare, in Mountain Lakes, is collaborating with Saint Clare’s Educational Services in orchestrating the event.

"Supporting professional educational programs such as this represents our ongoing commitment to health care professionals and the patients they serve. These pertinent topics will be of great interest to our health care community," said Tony Podias, president of Synergy HomeCare.

Participants will also enjoy a complimentary breakfast sponsored by Smith & Biotherapeutics as well as a complimentary lunch sponsored by Synergy HomeCare.
