update on issues relevant to clinical practice and will offer the opportunity to learn new skills
and refresh existing competency and knowledge. During the course students will be offered
the opportunity to attend a variety of Zoom lectures, covering key issues such as ‘Updates
on Medical Legal Aspects for the Assistant Role’ and ‘Lessons Learned from working as an
as an Assistant during a Pandemic’. There will also be an opportunity to discuss personal
and professional developments and explore the transition from an Advanced Scrub
Practitioner/Surgical First Assistant to a Surgical Care Practitioner, looking at the
educational route and associated local requirements and specialities.
Students will receive 8 hours of teaching and the relevant course materials and Zoom details
will be sent three days prior to the commencement of the course. On completion of the
course and attendance at all Zoom sessions students will receive a certificate of attendance.
This is an excellent opportunity to refresh your knowledge of some of the content of your
