Evidence Based Birth®: Comfort Measures for L&D Nurses

Sunday, March 17, 2019, 2-5 pm

All nurses who register at the Professional level or higher will earn 3 nursing contact hours, and those who register as Super Users will receive a Comfort Measures Toolkit to take back to your unit and teach to your peers. Come enjoy an afternoon of demonstrations, discussion, and networking with L & D nurses from all over Middle Tennessee.

This Comfort Measures Workshop is taught by Heidi Duncan, CBD(CBI), Authorized Peanut Ball Trainer and Evidence Based Birth® Instructor. We designed this workshop specifically for Labor and Delivery nurses who are looking to add to their labor support knowledge and skills. However, local doulas, midwives, and childbirth educators are also encouraged to register!

Location: UPDATE! The workshop has been relocated to Nashville! We'll be meeting in the community room at Ready Nest Counseling.
This workshop is held at Holistic Health Center, 894 Hwy 76, Suite 104, Clarksville, TN 37043, an easy access location from I-24 less than 1 hour NW of Nashville. Attendees are welcome to socialize at one of the awesome restaurants within walking distance after the workshop is over! Space is limited in this workshop.

Contact hours: By attending this workshop and completing an evaluation and quiz, registrants at the Professional or Super User ticket level will earn a certificate for 3 nursing contact hours from Evidence Based Birth®, a continuing education provider for the Kentucky Board of Nursing #7-0081. Nursing contact hours can also be applied to most childbirth educator and doula certifications.
