Children's Hospital Colorado's Division of Patient Care Services leaders and team members value professional development. All nurses are encouraged to participate in continuing education activities annually.
We offer a variety of healthcare conferences throughout the year for nurses.
Pediatric Advanced Practice Conference
This annual conference is presented with support from the Rocky Mountain Chapter National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. During the conference, we address clinical updates in evidence-based care for a variety of diagnoses and professional issues for advanced practice providers. The conference includes keynote addresses, panel presentations and workshops.
This popular interdisciplinary conference delves into various approaches to the ethical analysis of complex medical decisions in pediatric care. During the conference, we inquire skillfully into the complex narratives we often encounter in the medical field. We analyze our personal and professional values, as well as the objectivity necessary for practical ethical analysis.
Perinatal Clinical Update
During this conference, we review aspects of assessment, stabilization and acute care of high-risk pregnant women, fetuses and newborn infants. Discussions focus on clinical cases, current perspectives and evidence-based information.
O’Neil Pediatric Clinical Update
This conference, held in conjunction with the Nursing Research and Evidenced-Based Practice Poster Fair, focuses on assessment and management of common pediatric conditions in hospital, ambulatory and community settings. Interprofessional participation is encouraged for nurses, advanced practice providers, child life specialists, medical assistants, therapists, social workers, EMS providers and others interested in improving the care of infants, children and youth.
Community and School Health Pediatric Conference
At the Community and School Health Pediatric Conference, presenters emphasize an integrated approach among family, community and healthcare teams. We focus on how to transition infants, children and youth with increasing complex health needs back to their communities.
End of Life Nursing Education Consortium
Over two days, conference presenters address different aspects of perinatal or pediatric terminal illness and the bereavement process. We teach attendees how to provide evidence-based care for patients as well as emotional and spiritual support for caregivers and survivors.
Resilience and self-care for nurses
We support self-care and resilience for nurses by providing a variety of courses and resources for team members throughout their careers. Our offerings include:
Caritas Circles: The nursing care team comes together at the beginning of each shift to support one another and prepare for the workday.
Heart Math: This class provides a unique set of techniques to lower stress and boost resilience, while engaging the power of positive emotions to promote well-being and self-care.
Three Vital Questions: This class teaches attendees how to act as a creator and achieve goals.
The Kali Whittle Resilience Conference: This conference brings together resiliency experts to support staff by creating opportunities to find peace and healing while caring for others.
