Description

Remarkable recent developments in the fields of surgery, anaesthesiology and resuscitation have made the surgical units of hospitals complex and dynamic work environments that require profound levels of expertise. Nursing professionals interested in working in this specialty need to have strong and focused training in order to develop the professional skills for confronting the daily tasks that arise in this area of healthcare.Factors related to research and development, as well as general population characteristics and improvements in social well-being call for a new nursing approach that heightens the role of strategy within surgical units.In response to these growing demands, the General Hospital and the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) have joined forces to offer a postgraduate course for nurses interested in specialising in the field of surgery.
