About The Webinar

Your role within the theatre environment has so much potential - much more than simply prepping patients and opening kit. With careful consideration and planning, your role can be pivotal in ensuring an efficient and safe environment for both patient and personnel. Even the most basic of surgeries requires a sound knowledge of the procedure, kit requirements, potential complications and patient considerations. Minimising surgical duration is vitally important and an experienced scrub nurse can be invaluable.

In this webinar, Rebecca shows you how you can help to decrease surgical time and alleviate stress levels.

Specific points covered include: The basics - where to start and what you need; How to safeguard against potential intra-operative complications; How to utilise checklists and achieve best practice; What you need to know about clinical auditing; How to be an effective scrub nurse.
