New FPC Webinars

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in association with the RCSEd Faculty of Perioperative Care have developed a new webinar series for non-medical practitioners. CPD is important for all non-medical practitioners in the surgical team (e.g. SCP, ACP and SFA) to ensure their knowledge, technical and non-technical skills are kept up to date with current practice. RCSEd is the first College to develop a series of webinars specifically for this group which will complement the courses and the annual conference already run by the Faculty of Perioperative Care at the College.

The series will include the following topics and are free to participate in.  Once shown, they will be available within our RCSEd webinar archive, available to all FPC Faculty and RCSEd members.

  Auditing my Surgical Practice as a practitioner 

  Responsibilities and Accountability of the Surgical Assistant

  Assessment of risk in the Surgical patient: what the practitioner should know
