Challenging Behaviours in the Perioperative Environment

Author - AfPP. ISBN - 978-1-904290-15-5.

Violence, bullying and harassment are not new concepts and neither are they confined to patients and relatives on healthcare staff; many incidents have been reported among managers and practitioners. This publication aims to raise awareness about the incidence of workplace violence and bullying, who, why and how people bully or commit acts of violence, the legislation regulating such behaviour and to offer practical advice and guidance to those who are victims of bullying/violent behaviours.

Book cover  - Perioperative Audit Tool
Perioperative Audit Tool

ISBN - 978-904290-21-6.

This is the first edition of the revised tool (previously the Risk and Quality Management System) and it continues to be based on a model of comparison against recognised benchmarks for quality practice. The tool provides a framework for departments to examine service performance and identify potential improvements in delivery of service using a peer review process.
This tool is not designed to accredit an individual’s capability, but is intended to assess the whole perioperative process and to show that processes and procedures have met a defined set of criteria to assist in the delivery of safe and effective healthcare at a single point in time. It should be used to identify and implement effective risk management strategies for all involved in patient care to ensure positive health outcomes.

Healthcare is always in the spotlight and this useful tool will assist any theatre department to ensure that the only reason they are singled out is because they have achieved exceptional standards within their environment.
