Breaking down barriers, driving up standards: the role of the perioperative team
 
Joint AfPP and RCN Perioperative Forum Workshop
 
Over the last 68 years the NHS has undergone radical transformation. Do you ever wonder what your role will look like in 10 years from now?
Join us at this workshop which will support you through the challenges and changes you face at the forefront of perioperative care. 
 
Highlights of the workshop include: 
 
• Reflective sessions: analyse your personality, explore the traits of colleagues and implement this learning in your workplace setting to improve your teamwork. 
 
• Get back to basics: rediscover the 6 Cs and how you can use them to improve patient outcomes. 
 
• Cut the red tape: get to the heart of clinical and professional standards and what these mean for you. 
 
• Think outside the box: consider how innovation and a changing environment will affect the way you and your team operate. Stay ahead and be prepared for these changes.
 
The workshop will focus on best practice and will take you back to basics: there will be exploration of human factors, team working, situational awareness, theatre etiquette and more. Confirmed speakers include Professor Jane Reid, Researcher, Independent Healthcare Advisor, NHS NED, Dawn Stott, CEO, AfPP and Ruth Leighton, Practice Development Nurse Theatres, Wrexham Maelor Hospital, Wales.
 
This event is suitable for all nurses, nursing students, health care assistants/support workers and operating department practitioners working in anaesthetics, theatre and recovery (PACU).
