The RCSEd Faculty of Perioperative Care Lead Mr Charlie Auld is looking forward to welcoming you to this year's FPC Conference 'The Perioperative Practitioner: What are the future developments for the extended surgical team?' delivered virtually on Friday 20 November 2020.
Our webinar Covid-19: The value of the advanced practitioner in the surgical team took place on 6th May 2020 and was hosted by Mr Charlie Auld, who invited Ms Jenny Abraham, Dr Bhuvaneswari Bibleraaj and Prof Robin Paton to address the modern Surgical Team as well as discuss the results of the COVID-19 MSc Surgical Practice survey on the impact on trainee SCPs.
I am delighted to update you on the progress of the Faculty of Perioperative Care on completion of its 3rd year following its inception in March 2016.
The Faculty of Perioperative Care (FPC) sent a short survey to senior SCPs across the specialties of Cardiothoracic, Orthopaedic and General Surgery to determine the challenges COVID-19 can pose with particular reference to their preparation for this outbreak, the need to redeploy to other roles and their ability to work within (or out with) their scope of practice.
As part of the Medical Associate Professions (MAP) programme, Health Education England with their Royal College and faculty partners, have developed the ‘Establishing Common Standards for Continuing Professional Development, Assessment and Appraisal Guidelines for Medical Associate Professionals’.
The Faculty of Perioperative Care (FPC) launched in early 2016 to provide education, training and support for advanced perioperative practitioners in their role as members of the extended surgical team.
