Book cover  - Staffing for Patients in the Perioperative Setting 2014 (e-book)
Staffing for Patients in the Perioperative Setting 2014 (e-book)

Author - AfPP.

Revised and updated, this document sets out the overarching recommendations for a staffing model utilising the associated issues that need to be considered fundamental to every perioperative environment. These environments could be in the public or the independent healthcare sector or indeed anywhere delivering perioperative care.

Staffing ratios are crucial to the overriding principles of the organisation to provide quality care, patient safety and staff welfare in the pressured perioperative setting. This edition of Staffing for patients in the perioperative environment embraces the changes that have occurred in perioperative care and seeks to provide clear guidance for calculating the safe staffing establishments for perioperative facilities.

The formula included in this publication provides a template and calculation guide of the numbers of staff required which, when completed accurately and comprehensively, gives a true reflection of whole time equivalent (WTE) staffing required for your environments. This publication is a guideline but should be viewed as the essential benchmark for perioperative staffing and associated budget for staff resources as the driver, not starting with a budget and then adapting staffing to fit.

Staffing for patients in the perioperative environment:
  • provides clear guidance for calculating safe staffing establishments
  • facilitates effective risk management
  • promotes safe staffing
  • contains a staffing policy template
  • is a valuable tool for perioperative managers
  • Price £8.03 (ebook only)

    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.
