Asepsia and antisepsia Workshop 2020-2021

This month, we have done the asepsis and antisepsis workshop. This activity shapes the first step in order to apply for a minor surgery workshop, a definitely intersting experience in those interested in surgery.

This year, we have doubled the planned capacity in order to fulfill the interest that 1st and 2nd year students had in doing this seminar, reaching a total capacity of more than 70 students!

First of all, a short lecture has been given by 4th and 5th year students and then the students have practised with surgical material. 

The students have learnt the importance of sterility in an operation theatre as well as the correct form of antisepsis in order to prevent surgical infections. Not only did they practise on how to put on sterile gloves, but also on how to fit in a surgical coat. We would like to thank them all and hope to see them in the next AQG activities.

Asepsia and antisepsia Workshop 2019-2020

We are pleased to inform you that last Wednesday 23rd of October we had our first Asepsia and Antisepsia Workshop. The second one was cancelled due to the critical situation in Barcelona. The second workshop is pending and we are looking for a date.

A total of 20 members of our association were able to learn the basics of surgical performance. It started with an explanation and then practical training of the skills that are needed in an OR. They learned how to put on surgical clothes and surgical gloves while maintaining sterile conditions. 

We think that practical training is the key to learn these skills, so we focus on that at the workshop and aim that all of our members put these into practice on by assisting to a minor surgery offered by the association.

 

See you soon in an OR!

Asepsia and antisepsia Workshop 2018-2019

We are pleased to inform that last Tuesday 6th and Thursday 8th of November we had our two annual Asepsia and Antisepsia Workshops, in which we had even more participation than past year. 
 

A total of 35 members of our association were able to learn the basics of surgical performance. They learned how to put on surgical clothes that are needed in order to go into an OR. The students  could also practise the proper way of doing the surgical scrub and putting on gloves while maintaining sterile conditions. And finally, they learned how to dress up with the surgical gown. But learning all those procedures was not all we did. We shared experiences and had a marvellous time. 

It is our pleasure to run this workshop. Every year our students agree that this workshop is worth it. It is very dynamic and takes less than 2 hours. This workshop has two parts. It starts with an easy lecture about concepts and techniques, which is given by two of our senior members. This year Miriam Cazador and Eva Alberch took care of it. After this explanation, the workshop has a final part which consists on practical training of the procedure and skills. We think that practical training is the key to learn these skills, so we focus on that at the workshop and aim that all of our members put these into practice on by assisting to a minor surgery offered by the association. Keep learning, practising and enjoying!

Asepsis and antisepsis Workshop 2017-2018

OCT 25th & 26th

2017

Last Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th we had our two annual Asepsia and Antisepsia Workshops. A total of thirty members were able to learn which clothing they needed to go into an O.R.; which was the proper way of washing their hands and putting on gloves while maintaining sterile conditions; and how to dress up with the surgical gown. All in all, learning all those procedures in less than two hours was quite a merit. Congrats to them!

It is our pleasure to run this workshop. Every year our students agree that this workshop is worth it. It is very dynamic. First, our students listen to the explanation given by our senior members Manel Fa and Sergio Sans about all the things that are required in the O.R. After that, they go through a drill where they are the leading characters. We do it this way as we think that if you are willing to learn something, interactive and dynamic learning is the easiest way of doing it!

Suturing Workshop 2011-2012

 

To finish the activities in the academic year of 2011-2012, the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences had the pleasure of hosting its first suturing workshop organized by the association. Every member had the opportunity to participate in one of the arranged sessions. Each session had an approximate duration of two and a half hours and was held with the help and collaboration of surgeons like Professor Manuel Pera and Dr. Luis Grande.

The aim of the sessions was to learn and practice basic surgical skills, therefore, in each session there were five different stations: surgical tools, knots, anesthesic infiltrations, simple suture and continuous suture. The participants were divided in five groups and were designated to a specific station rotating afterwards through the other ones. In each station a general or gastroenterological surgery resident supervised and taught the participants.
