Course summary

This is an interprofessional, distance learning course, intended for healthcare professionals who want to specialise in the field of surgical and perioperative care.

This part-time programme is aimed at registered nurses, doctors, operating department practitioners and other healthcare professionals.

The programme aims to offer knowledge and expertise to provide a transition between theory and your own clinical practice. It draws together a collection of fundamental information in an e-learning format, with an emphasis on the general principles of surgical practice rather than on the management of specific conditions.

The multifaceted nature of caring for surgical patients is evaluated from an evidence-based perspective. Teaching considers the full journey of the surgical patient, starting with admission and preoperative preparation through to postoperative care and discharge.

Professional issues, including clinical governance and inter-professional practice, are also covered. Assessments are structured to enable you to evaluate the topic in relation to your practice areas of interest and professional base.
