Course will have a nursing specific focus from the perspective of working as a part of a multi-disciplinary team. Course takes participants through pre-operative assessments, education and preparation for surgery, defines vaginoplasty and surgical options within vaginoplasty including detailed overview of the surgeries themselves, hospital overview, and what to expect for post op recovery.
