Hospital and Theatre Access Programme

Theatre access: foundation

The environment of the operating room can be intimidating and difficult in which to demonstrate or sell a product. It is, however, one of the areas of hospitals that utilise a great many new technologies and products requiring visitors from medical device companies to be present during surgery.

This course has been developed for anyone who may need theatre access in England to develop their knowledge and awareness of behaviours and risks, so that an appropriate response is given. It is intended this will reduce the risk to the patient, the representative and the company and avoid harm to all.


One module and a twenty question exam.
