I have had the privilege of attending SISTA workshops on hip, knee and ASM navigation. These courses have proven invaluable to the requirements of working in the orthopaedic perioperative environment.
The courses are welcoming and they cater to all levels of attendees. I have found them to be well structures and organised. Having the theoretical talks followed by hands on in-service has helped reinforce my knowledge, skills and confidence in Orthopaedics.
Since participating in the courses, I now feel competent and confident to actively select prosthetic implants required for the procedure. I can now quickly discern how to read the details on the prosthetic packaging and confirm with the surgeon the correct implant details.
SISTA is an exciting new program being driven and developed nationally by our Clinical Nurse and Integration Specialist teams.
