This is the flagship course of A & L Healthcare and is delivered by Preoperative Association Board Member Lee Wadsworth. Lee co-authored National Training Standards and developed Competencies for Preoperative Assessment in 2014. These standards and competencies are ratified and used by the Preoperative Association. This course can be delivered over 2-5 days depending on content and level required, right through to competency training packages including OSCE type assessments. The two day course provides a good introduction to Preoperative Assessment for qualified Nurses. Organisations can choose other courses to add to this basic package such as ECG Interpretation, Interpretation of Blood Results, Spirometry and Venepuncture.

We also provide competency-based training packages for the developing Health Care Assistant role within the Preoperative Assessment arena.
