Neonatal Sepsis

  1. 0 Hello,

    I have to plan a creative/original 15 minute presentation on neonatal sepsis. Does anyone have any creative, fun, original ideas or suggestions for me? Thank you!!

    Yeah, hard to believe isn't it! (I'm just trying to make it interesting)

    there is really nothing fun about neonatal sepsis. My poor daughter almost got an LP at 2 days old because they thought she had it although it turned out it was contaminated blood cultures. I would just say make an informational presentation.

    To demonstrate a newborn, use a sponge

    My suggestion, remember what it is like to sit through a presentation where someone reads word for word a powerpoint slide... HORRIBLE

    Be interactive, asking questions, showing pictures (of supplies, LP, ABX, etc) Get interesting statistics that have the "Wow I had no clue" factor

    And then maybe at the end, because I do agree the subject is the farthest thing from fun that I can imagine, close with "Now that you have learned about Neonatal Sepsis and are utterly depressed here is something to cheer you up" and have a Nursing Comic or a really funny TOTALLY off topic picture to cheer everyone up.

    Good luck!

    Ugh! I don't understand why someone can't post a thread without another becoming personally offended. By "fun" the OP meant something that will keep her audience interested, not taking neonatal sepsis lightly, c'mon! *off soapbox*

    I would say plan an activity to get the audience involved. Be sure to use lots of visuals and try to stray from just using a power point. Have actual hands on things to show. Create a handout for people to take with them with your major points on it. Good luck!
