12th Basic Course for scrub Nurses in Traumatology and Orthopaedic Surgery
The 12th Basic course for scrub Nurses in Traumatology and Orthopaedic Surgery organised by the Spanish Traumatology and Orthopaedic Nursing Association AEETO (Asociación Española de Enfermería en Traumatología y Ortopedia) has been in the Simulation and Training Centre of the Hospital Fundación Alcorcón (IDEhA). The course was held from 18th to 20th May 2016.
This course was aimed at nurses that needed basic knowledge about techniques in Traumatology and Orthopaedic Surgery. Some of them are working in Emergency Operating Room, others have been in the Trauma OR for month and others have learnt techniques because some colleagues have told them but they want to know how to do it well and why it should be done that manner.
Elena Miguel (the educational coordinator of this course), together with a group of expert nurses, have managed to transmit extensive and adequate knowledge about:
- Osteosynthesis: different techniques
- Hip, Knee and Shoulder Prosthesis
- Surgical Cement
- Back Surgery
It has been a theoretical-practical course. All participants were able to see, touch and in some cases, using real instruments doing some specific technique in plastic bone.
Elena Miguel hopes all students have learnt new knowledge and acquired new skills in this theoretical and practical course.
