Theatres of the Future: A Multi-Professional Approach

Date: 9 July 2022

Location: London School of Economics, London

CPD: 5.5 Hours

Price: £50 for Non-Members, £25 for Members, FREE for Student Members

The global shortage of perioperative practitioners forces us to ‘bridge the gap’ by working collaboratively across many boundaries and specialties to deliver safe, high-quality patient care. This study day examines four distinct areas of practice to explore why taking a multi-professional approach to learning from other disciplines and using transferrable skills is key for building theatre teams that are fit for the future.

Topics will include:

  • Lessons learnt as a consultant anaesthetist
  • Potential barriers to preventing harm
  • Recognising and managing difficult airways
  • Inadvertent hyperthermia prevention and management
  • ‘Not Just Small Adults’ – paediatric perioperative care
  • Safe manual handling and patient positioning
  • Transferrable skills – from RODP to management
