Perioperative Nursing is a wonderful dynamic and challenging Nursing speciality. It is a team sport where medical, Nursing and ancillary staff are thrust together in a team environment. When this works well it is a masterpiece to behold, however, when personalities and unforeseen circumstances arise, it can be fraught with difficulties.
This seminar is designed to look at evidence-based literature and to enable Nurses to develop a deeper understanding of the perioperative environment; explore some of the possible emergency situations perioperative Nurses may face, and, provide knowledge to perform during these emergencies with the confidence skill & know-how to deliver safer patient care. Perioperative Nursing is not always taught in the undergraduate curricula thus the importance of post registration education in this specialty area cannot be overestimated. This seminar will suit both novice and experienced perioperative Nurses.
