Happy Perioperative Nurses Week 2016

This year, to celebrate Perioperative Nurses’ Week we’re releasing the education resources from one of our popular and recent Twilight Seminars and making it available as a GIFT for download from our website. This gift comes just in time for you to prepare for Wound Awareness Week 16th – 21st October 2016. Whether you work in the medical industry, acute care, community or aged care settings, this downloadable resource will be of interest for everyone.

Wound Assessment: What lies beneath. Bibliography and useful resources

We hope you can use it to advance your knowledge and improve the outcomes of vulnerable patients.

As part of the celebrations, we think it’s important to acknowledge some of the amazing nurses who have paved the way for us!

This is Jane Bell – an extraordinary woman and the first Sister in Charge in the Operating Theatres of the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

And here’s Matron Grace Wilson, commemorated in a poster on Sydney’s George Street. She’s doing her rounds of the 3rd Australian General Hospital on Lemnos Island in 1915.


There are countless more extraordinary nurses who have made a contribution to perioperative nursing care.

Who do you look up to? Let us know and we’ll post a selection of responses.

Very best wishes from Sally & Menna
