About this education

This course has been developed by The Pacific Community (SPC) in collaboration with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and Interplast to support Pacific nurses in their clinical practice.

Based on the Standards for Perioperative Nursing, it focusses on three key areas:

  1. Infection prevention
  2. Patient safety
  3. Environmental safety

The course will take participants approximately 2 hours to complete. You may start and return to the course at any time.

By the completion of the course, you will be able to:

  • Implement standards of practice in infection control, patient safety and environmental safety
  • Ensure adequate execution of infection safety protocols.
  • Engage safely with patients in a range of situations.
  • Recall guidelines for maintenance of a safe perioperative environment.
  • Examine the practices of your own workplace in relation to the standards.
