Stress Free Surgery Workshop

Stress Free Surgery

Reduce your stress during surgery and the healing time of your patients after surgery, through the acquisition of new skills and knowledge.

Bad habits creep into everything we do, particularly if you work on your own or do not have feedback from your colleagues.

Refresh your skills through a review of the important fundamentals of surgery and the opportunity to practice these skills in a wet lab environment. This workshop will be ideal for those returning to practice, recent graduates and old hands who want to brush up their surgery skills.

Past participant:

I feel that a practically-orientated workshops offer, by far, the best value for money for any continuing education. These are the sort of courses I will be seeking out in the future. Many thanks to Chris Tan, the CVE, the sponsors and all their helpers for what was a most informative day.
