Description

This program is being offered in cooperation with UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing.

Haven’t used your suturing skills much lately? Would you like more practice? Join us for this three-hour workshop that is designed for health care providers at all skill levels. You will have an opportunity to learn, refresh and practice your basic suturing, biopsy skills with hands-on practice and guidance from experienced health care providers.

Over the course of the workshop, you will learn to choose your materials, perform digital nerve blocks, simple interrupted suturing, mattress suturing, advanced closures, and punch biopsy techniques.

Registration will include practice materials for use during and after the workshop.

Participants will complete a didactic module online prior to coming to the in-person session to maximize hands-on practice time.
