Suturing Tissue Gluing and Wound Care in General Practice

Saturday, November 5 2022
12:30PM - 5:30PM (ACDT)
Venue @313
313 Payneham Road, Royston Park South Australia 5070

Recommended For

GPs, Nurses, Junior Doctors & Medical Students.


A hands-on workshop designed to introduce GPs, practice nurses, junior doctors and medical students to the basics of suturing, tissue gluing and wound care. Highly relevant to health practitioners with limited exposure to minor surgical procedures and those wishing to consolidate experience. The workshop has the flexibility to introduce participants to more advanced suturing techniques dependent on their individual learning needs and skill acquisition at the workshop.

Primary care remains at the forefront of wound management in Australia but for many GPs maintaining competency and confidence in suturing minor wounds and in providing general wound care is becoming increasingly challenging particularly for those in the metropolitan areas where many patients requiring minor procedures are often referred to hospital. Practical clinical skills workshops have been shown through experience and in the literature to be one of the most effective methods to enable GPs and other practitioners to regain their confidence and competence in these skills.
