Nursing Specialty Perioperative Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

Course Details

This course introduces perioperative nursing, including the roles of nurses and multidisciplinary perioperative team members. It introduces the concepts of caring, advocacy, patient safety, and risk management and discusses strategies to enact them. Participants consider how health relates to perioperative patients, and how the perioperative nurse promotes health. Basic information about safety and aseptic technique is presented. Learners explore how individuals might experience surgery and anesthesia, using framing concepts of anxiety, vulnerability, and uncertainty. Strategies are presented for how the nurse can seek to understand the patient’s perioperative experience and respond by providing care based in relational practice. Models for ethical practice and clinical decision-making are discussed. Students will consider how environmental factors such as time and space affect team function, patient care, and the patient’s lived experience. Strategies for communication and collaboration are presented as they relate to patient support and team function.
