Why has Swann-Morton launched an online training module?
We felt that although materials are available online in respect to the EU Sharps Directive and Sharps Injury reduction it has a strong emphasis on needle stick and doesn't always relate to surgical blades and scalpels. The module supports the training we offer in “Best Practice when handling Surgical Blades” and provides an opportunity for additional education and learning.
Does it carry formal CPD hours?
Yes, it has been accredited by the AfPP for 2 hours Continual Education.
Is there a test?
Yes – on completion of all the modules you will be presented with 25 multiple choice questions that need to completed within a 30 minute period with an 72% pass rate. If successful a certificate bearing your name will be automatically generated and sent to your email for your personal development portfolio.
