ISHRS 2021 Surgical Assistants Program

The 2021 course has concluded. Stay tuned for information on the 2022 program.

Course Description

The Surgical Assistants Program is aimed for technicians of all skill levels, with the key elements covering from the basics to topics for assistants with many years and high levels of experience under their belts. The program has an interactive component, so technicians can put forward questions to the faculty for a panel review.

It is an opportunity to update your staff’s knowledge, inspire and enthuse them to come back to work with an open mind to implement new ideas into practice. It also helps build empathy skills so patients can have a more wonderful experience.

The program is recorded, so participants can review the material again at their convenience.
