Basic Suture Skills Course for Nurses
Date Posted: 21/Jul/2017

The Basic Suture Skills Course introduces students with limited experience and skills to the basics of wound management and allows them to practice simple suturing on a prosthetic model.

Basic suturing is an essential psychomotor skill in the everyday practice. Although suturing technique is important, the student must also have a thorough understanding of wound management in general to effectively care for a patient with a laceration.

The Basic Suture course covers instrument basics such as:

  • Suture types and selection
  • Proper loading of the needle
  • Wound assessment and management
  • Local anaesthesia
  • Aftercare and documentation.
