About The Procedure Guide

The Procedure Guide was launched to provide a modern, practical learning resource for proceduralists. Below you’ll find some details about navigating content.

But we also encourage you to learn about who we are, the bigger goal of this site, and to help us reach that goal.

The guides on the site try to balance academic/formal training with more practical/real-world considerations as best as possible. There may be techniques not presented here that can be better or worse depending on the situation, and we encourage you to incorporate the info here into other training that you receive.

Sections

Our articles can be found in the main navigation at the top of any page:

Basics– This covers common foundational knowledge that is useful before you look at specific procedure guides.

Specialties/Procedures – Each article is focused on one procedure with technique description and sample images. As described above, the articles try to provide one technique and an understanding of important considerations to make an educated evaluation in different situations.

Articles are split up into various specialties/menus.

Sample Opnote Templates – This isn’t it’s own section, but each article tries to include a link to a sample opnote. Writing good/thorough operative reports can be time consuming and take time to refine. We help you get a head start with templates that have been refined over years and contain many of the basics that you’ll need.

Sample Images – We try to include relevant sample images in all our articles. You’ll also see samples in the right sidebar on any page and can simply browse sample images here.

So, start looking around! Also, we’d love to hear from you, good or bad; We want to make this site as useful as possible.
