Train the Trainer


Most T&O surgeons don’t have the time to attend extensive educational programmes, so this programme provides a solid foundation as a T&O trainer in surgical practice through a focused day and a half programme, facilitated by Lisa Hadfield-Law.

The programme will be closely linked to the 2014 IITOS guidelines for Trauma and Orthopaedic Trainers in Ireland
which require training as a trainer in the following areas:

  • Assessment of individual learning needs
  • Identification of teaching objectives
  • Ability to teach in various clinical settings from the OPD, to the operating theatre and
    the ward.
  • Ability to base teaching in published evidence.
  • Participation in research and audit.
  • Contribution to the running of the training programme both locally and nationally.

Course instructor Lisa Hadfield-Law is a surgical educationalist who has trained over 5000 surgeons to teach, from different specialties and from 57 countries within Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific. Having a clinical background, Lisa is in a uniqueposition to help you identify your strengths and gaps as a T&O trainer.
