ACORN produces a number of webinars each year to assist perioperative nurses with their professional development. The webinars are online seminars, presented by perioperative nurses from a range of specialities, and you can participate from the comfort of your own home. The webinars are recorded and available via the buttons below for viewing at any time.
Some ACORN webinars are open access while others are accessible only to members of ACORN, and the local state and territory perioperative nursing associations, and independent subscribers.
Webinars about standards for perioperative nursing practice in Standards for Perioperative Nursing in Australia (the ACORN Standards) and ACORN's Practice Audit Tools (PATs) as well as certain company-sponsored webinars are available for general viewing.
