This one day course is designed to teach you how to effectively assess and manage acute wounds with suture closure.  The day is divided into theory and practice, giving you the opportunity to safely practice.

Included within the theory:

  • Basic anatomy and physiology,
  • Wound assessment
  • Stages of wound healing
  • Types of analgesia & Lidocaine techniques
  • Documentation & consent
  • Suture material & techniques

This workshop gives staff the theoretical knowledge required to undertake this skill, however they are required to obtain sign off in their own clinical area through observed practice before they can perform this skill independently.

Who will benefit:

This one-day course is aimed at Nurses, GPs, Practitioners, ACP’s, Medics, and Paramedics. It will provide you with both the theory and practical skills to suture safely.
