AfPP’s First London Study Day of 2018
Released on - 20/07/2018
The first London Study Day of 2018 took place on 16 June and explored the different ways to communicate, to lead and to reflect on practice within the perioperative environment.
Speakers included Perioperative Healthcare Consultant Mona Guckian Fisher on the power of reflection in team relationships and personal communication; Practice Development ODP and AfPP London Regional Lead Efua Hagan on the challenges of dealing with difficult people; Matron (Cardiac, Liver & Neuro Theatres) of King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Minija Joseph on leadership; and Practice Development Nurse (Theatres & Interventional Radiology) of Kings College Hospital Tosan Okubule on reflection on management styles. AfPP’s Patient Safety and Quality Lead Karen Cox was also in attendance.
Efua comments: “Overall it was an enjoyable study day. Each speaker not only gave personal examples but also reiterated the importance of retention, reflection and communication. We were left reflecting on our practice and on the statement that the patient is at the centre of what we do - not forgetting that the health, safety and welfare of the staff is just as important.”
The next AfPP London Study Day will take place on 24 November 2018 to which perioperative practitioners from all disciplines are warmly invited. If you are interested in attending or receiving more information about this event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
