Welcome to the Basic Practical Skills (BPS) module on General principles.
The Basic Practical Skills (BPS) online course is an eLearning module that has been created for the BPS course. As well as refining surgical techniques in the practical course, it is important to understand the theory and key issues behind the practical skills. These tutorials will refresh your knowledge on topics covered by the BPS course, and test what you have learned through self-assessments at the end.
BPS delegates should complete all the tutorials and assessments BEFORE attending the practical course.
The General principles module is comprised of eTutorials on:
- surgical positioning
- suture and needles
- surgical scrubbing.
