AGES Webinar on Protecting the Surgeon and Surgical Team

July 16, 2020
Virtual Event (Zoom)

July 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

The changing medical landscape over the last few months has highlighted the responsibility of the surgeon and the health facility to protect the surgical team from occupational hazards in the operating theatre. We have also had a timely reminder that our physical health is one of the greatest assets for career longevity and quality of performance.

With this in mind, AGES will be hosting a webinar on the evening of Thursday, 16th July focusing on two occupational hazards in theatre:

  • Surgical plume/aerosolized particles and;
  • Ergonomic hazards

We will welcome Menna Davies, nurse consultant (FACORN, FACN), to present an update on the latest technology for safely managing smoke evacuation and surgical plume. 

We also look forward to Margaret Land, a physiotherapist with a special interest in surgical ergonomics, who will present her experience on the ergonomics of minimally invasive surgery and how to mitigate some of the physical risks of the surgeon-workplace interface.

Lastly, Dr Devini Ameratunga (FRANZCOG) will present on assessing theatre equipment for a diverse surgical population and her tips and advice for finding the best surgical equipment for your individual needs.
