The world of Day Surgery is one of the most rapidly changing facets of health care in the 21st Century. With an ever-increasing demand for elective surgical procedures enabling patients to be discharged on the same day, the nature of preoperative and postoperative care is growing. As the scope of available surgeries expands, so has the demand for skilled nursing staff to keep pace with the shifting nature of roles, techniques and interventions in the day surgery environment.
The DSNA offers the GLENYS CHAPMAN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SCHOLARSHIP to support members towards the cost of ongoing education. This exciting opportunity for up-skilling and accumulating CPD hours will be awarded for any accredited day surgery relevant courses, workshops, research studies or conferences attended.
