Theatre Practice ~ a Guide to Effective Theatre Management

The aim of effective theatre practice and management is to provide a sterile and safe environment in which to undertake surgery with consideration to reducing the risks to the patient and staff.

The course will explore and focus on the key factors in managing an efficient operating theatre, and will cover many topics from all aspects of theatre practice and management to help you to run a theatre effectively, and achieve guidelines set within the RCVS practice standards.

Participants will be able to share their knowledge base and protocols with a view to gaining an understanding of the areas of strength and weakness in the delivery and maintenance of their current practice protocols.

This will lead to discussions on how improvements can be made to achieve best practice standards within the remits of their own individual practices, and develop standard theatre operating procedures based upon this learning.
