Periop 101 Modules

Individual Periop 101 modules can now be purchased to customize your learning curriculum and meet specific needs around patient and worker safety, aseptic practice, equipment safety, patient care, and sterilization. You can also purchase recommended videos that supplement the modules. The videos are ideal as staff training tools. Empowering your team with knowledge will lead to improved patient safety and outcomes.

If you completed Periop 101: A Core Curriculum at your facility, please be advised that these are the same modules as those contained in this curriculum. Modules are updated yearly so there may be new content in the module. Check with your licensing/certification boards to see if they will accept contact hours more than once for the same course.
