Updates for the plastic surgery e-learning programme

Published: Friday, 03 July 2020

New and updated sessions have been added to our e-Learning for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (e-LPRAS) programme.

Developed by the British Association of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgeons, this programme covers all aspects of plastic surgery, including essential skills, surgical principles, burns and specific body parts. The programme is aimed at plastic surgery trainees. It is also relevant to consultants, and allied health professionals who want to increase and update their knowledge.

Six new sessions have been added to the programme and three existing sessions have been updated.

The new sessions are:

  • Axillary Sampling and Axillary Clearance in Breast Cancer (within Module 6 – Breast and Chest Wall)
  • Dressings and Splintage Following Surgery for Burns (Module 9 – Burns)
  • Initial Management of Head and Neck Burns (Module 9 – Burns)
  • Liposuction in the Lower Limb (Module 8 – Lower Limb)
  • Median, Ulnar and Radial Nerve Blocks (Module 5 – Upper Limb)
  • Leg Ulcers (Module 8 – Lower Limb)

The updated sessions are:

  • Pyogenic Granuloma (within Module 1 – Essentials of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery)
  • Skin Ulcers – Aetiology and Pathology (Module 1 – Essentials of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery)
  • Clinical Assessment of Burn Wound Depth (Module 9 – Burns)

The programme is highly interactive – with photos, diagrams, and questions – to help reinforce learning and understanding. You can use e-LPRAS as a standalone resource or to support traditional classroom and workplace learning.

Full details about e-LPRAS are available on our dedicated programme page.
