Ophthalmic Operating Theatre Course

Duration: 2 Day(s)
CPD Hours: 16
Start Time: 09:15
End Time: 16:30

OVERVIEW

 

This course will provide attendees with an opportunity to update their skills and knowledge in respect to adult ophthalmic operating theatre practice. This would be through a series of sessions specifically targeted at the explicit requirements of those working in (and patients accessing) ophthalmic theatres. It would consider the various sub-specialties with ophthalmology and the main areas of practice including pre-assessment, scrub, anaesthetic and recovery roles.

This course would be extremely valuable for qualified practitioners either new to the specialty or recently qualified and associate/assistant practitioners or theatre support practitioners who wish to develop their knowledge. It may also be of interest to Operating Department Practitioners who want to bolster their skills and knowledge within ophthalmology.

 

"Excellent course for anyone who is looking to improve their ophthalmic knowledge"

"The course was very interesting and detailed. Highly recommend"
