Comments from evaluation of Lipids education day:
- I can now give specific information to patients rather than general information. I have kept abreast with current information rather than what I have been taught which could be either inaccurate or redundant and thus misinforming patient. Can now have meaningful conversations with colleagues.
- All of it was so useful for all nurses. I want to send all my team of 5 along to the next one. So useful when applying to chronic and long term patients. Pathophysiology is applicable to CVD, Diabetes, i.e. to use or not use statins in cardiac patients with borderline high cholesterol.
- This education challenges my thought process and how I can provide my clients with the most accurate and correct information.
- Gigi breaking the process down with its pathology improves how I process and understand lipids, lipo protein & cholesterol. I enjoy the challenge of my current professional knowledge and always look forward to ways of improving it.
- Has given me a lot of information to share and discuss with my colleagues
- Gigi has a great ability at sharing her knowledge to make things easily understood.
- Comprehensive explanation of everything. This information needs to get to all healthcare providers.
- I can see how I can extend my practice and work alongside people who visit. Excellent presentation. Met my expectation. Appropriate to my clinical setting and knowledge will assist with my post grad education.
