Gauteng Chapter News (February 2010)

On Saturday 20th Feb 2010 the Gauteng Chapter launched their Educational program for the year. The Theme of the day was “Putting an End to Preventable Harm, Safe surgery saves Lives”.

The main sponsor for the day was Kimberley Clark and they hosted the day at their offices in Bedfordview. 130 delegates attended, some coming from as far as Polokwane. One formal paper was delivered by Mrs V. Pieterse on “putting an end to preventable harm” after which it was time for tea. Delegates were then divided into groups of 20. Six stations were set up addressing various safety issues. This included topics like diathermy, tourniquet, cleaning of instruments, receiving the patient, draping and gloving and gowning. The stations were manned by some representatives from various companies. Each station included a peri-operative practioners. The day was concluded after a lucky draw and a scrumptious lunch. SATS Gauteng wishes to once again salute the companies that supported us and made this day successful: Surgimed, B. Braun, Indigenous and Kimberly Clark.

We have many more educational opportunities planned for the rest of the year. Remember the following dates: 22nnd May 2010, 21st Aug 2010, 23rd Oct 2010. Watch the post for a program!
