We’re trialling this ‘Perioperative Procedures’ guide to see if it helps your learning. You may have practiced many of these procedures initially in the clinical skills lab, then under direct supervision in patients. Other skills you may learn in your own study time then discuss with consultants/ teachers. Many procedures are best seen or performed when you come with us to the operating theatre. Year 6 SSC Remember: the more you practice the better you’ll get! By the time you qualify you should have performed the procedures on the left hand side-­‐ these are core things in bold you may be tested on or use frequently in your clinical practice. Don’t worry if you can’t see all of the procedures on the right hand side, but some in bold are clearly needed for medical practice (eg ECG and Arterial Blood Gas Interpretation). Watching or performing other procedures helps you in your daily practice (eg explaining things to patients), will aid your learning and retention, or will help you become a more complete doctor (eg explaining surgery under Spinal anaesthesia).
