The Dawood and Tanner Academy
suture removal course
Another day, another skill learnt
On Friday I very excitedly set off down to London to The Dawood and Tanner Academy for my course on suture removal.
Once I have completed my cases this will allow me to removed stitches for Sat after Implant placement.
I love having extended duties and it’s great that as nurses we can get more involved in patient care.
We got to do some suturing practice (not that we can suture patients) but to understand what goes into suturing and appreciate the skill that’s involved in doing it well.
I have to say I have watched dentists doing it for some time and yes I am guilty of thinking oo it doesn’t look that hard, bit like sewing a button on………well I now have a new appreciation of how tricky it is, and I will be sticking to buttons only lol
