Operating Department Practitioner

I originally joined AfPP when I was a student to gain access to articles for some assignments I was working on. I soon discovered the additional benefits, including their annual conference and study days.


Operating Department Practitioner

Receiving the Journal of Perioperative Practice supplemented my degree course and gave me a model of how to write publishable articles and essays. Attending study days is great for keeping up to date with evidence based practice and obtaining CPD hours.
