The Association for Perioperative Practice (AfPP): Safe staffing for patients in the perioperative environment


Event details

The provision of safe and quality care is the most fundamental principle to consider for patients in perioperative practice. Alongside this commitment, is the safety and welfare of all staff and visitors within the setting. Risk assessment, staffing ratios, competency and skill are crucial to ensuring that the intended outcome for patients is achieved as far as is reasonably practicable.

The discussion will outline how this can be achieved utilising the recommendations by the Association for Perioperative Practice (AfPP).

Learning outcomes:

  • Understanding risk and the process of risk assessment in perioperative practice.
  • The components of a safe perioperative environment.
  • How to calculate a safe staffing model for your environment based on the AfPP standard.
