Knots & Sutures

The purpose of this workshop is to give preclinical students and not only them, the opportunity to acquire elementary surgical notions. They will have the chance to become familiar with surgical instruments; they will learn how to rightly perform basic procedures such as knots, incisions and sutures. The students will attend theoretical lectures as well.

  • principles of asepsis and antisepsis;
  • basic surgical instruments kit;
  • surgical knots;
  • wound care;
  • hemostasis;
  • types of sutures;
  • bandages and wound dressing.

The workshop has a theoretical component and an important practical one. The theoretical component is held by a team of students and organizers, in the form of PowerPoint presentations which contain well-structured information with explanatory pictures. The practical component will take the form of a succession of demonstrations conducted by the main instructor, whose indications will be followed step by step by the participants at their work desks. At the end of the workshop the students will take an evaluation in order to assess their knowledge and they will be graded. These grades, although important to the people who organized the workshop, are purely informative, and they will not appear on the diploma given to each student at the end of the workshop.
