Advancing your Suture Skills: Adult & Peds Hands-on Workshop
Suturing Workshop: Sunday, April 7 @ 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. This 3+ hour workshop designed to review basic & advanced suturing techniques including simple interrupted, vertical and horizontal mattress, and interrupted subdermal sutures. During the workshop we will briefly discuss options for anesthetizing the wound, lip laceration repairs, building rapport with your pediatric patient, and tips for dealing with difficult children during a laceration repair. The majority of the time is spent practicing hands-on techniques with the goal of becoming more comfortable with all of the suturing techniques. The student to instructor ratio is kept low for maximum interaction and support and each participant will be able to take home their practice suture pad for future use. This session is an additional $225 per person.
