Do you want to be more involved in orthopaedic surgeries? Are you bringing your true value to the operating table?
Surgical nurses play a key role in theatre and can significantly enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the team. The aim of this course is to provide you with the skills and knowledge to be a confident member of a scrubbed-in orthopaedic surgical team. It will refresh your knowledge on orthopaedic kits, common implants (including different plating systems, common cruciate surgery equipment and external skeletal fixation) and orthopaedic surgical principles. There will be lectures and practical sessions with a range of orthopaedic equipment with synthetic bone models for hands-on practice.
