Celebrating 60 Years of Safer Surgery

2024 is a huge year for The Association of Perioperative Practice (AfPP) as they celebrate their 60th anniversary. To mark the organisation’s long history of supporting best practice and education, a programme of events will be taking place across the country. CSJ provides an overview.

The AfPP has been at the forefront of patient safety for 60 years and they have big plans for a year-long celebration. Firstly, and new for 2024, they're hosting The AfPP Roadshow consisting of seven one-day events across the UK, visiting Birmingham, Exeter, Cardiff, London, Glasgow, Belfast and Leeds. The 60th Anniversary events are focusing on the 'Fundamentals of Practice' with each event concentrating on five key areas of practice: Risk Management, Infection Control, Clinical Effectiveness, Patient Dignity and Care, and Mental Health and Wellbeing. You will find a different agenda and speakers in each city, and the events are suitable for practitioners at all stages of their career. Each one will equip delegates with 'actionable change' that can be put into practice immediately or included in longer term plans for improvement.

The events are designed to make perioperative education accessible (wherever you are in the country) and to encourage more people to give the AfPP events a try. With the special 60th Anniversary low ticket price, these events are offering superb education at great value for money (delegates gain 5 CPD hours) and are not to be missed. They are about welcoming members and importantly non-members, to give them a taste of what AfPP has to offer.

Sitting right at the heart of the Anniversary celebrations is the Annual Conference, supported by headline sponsor Mölnlycke. The Anniversary year sees the Annual Conference hosted at a brand-new venue, the fantastic University of Warwick site and, with the new venue, comes a new look conference for the delegates. Revealed will be over 30 educational sessions, three separate learning streams, plus hands-on practical workshops. Running alongside the busy educational agenda, you will find the industry exhibition and networking hub - the bustling exhibition hall features 30+ industry exhibitors, showcasing cutting-edge products and services giving delegates the chance to speak to industry professionals face-to-face. Topping off the event is the 60th Anniversary Gala dinner — a celebration of the Association and those who sit at its heart: the members.
