About the course

This interactive course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to assess the individual patient in the peri-operative period and cover a variety of challenges. After this course you will feel confident in planning for the individual difficult case as well as being able to advise your clinic on best practice with regards to premedication, monitoring and individual care in the peri-operative period. This course will feature a ‘how do I deal with…..’ session where you pose questions to the tutors on your own cases. The practical session will include an overview of CPR techniques.
