EPIC is the SPANZA special interest group for SPANZA Members with an interest in reducing peri-procedural anxiety and distress.

EPIC is an acronym for Effective Peri-Procedural Communication, which emphasises our aims to provide easily used simple techniques for every child, every time they have a medical procedure.

The secondary aim of EPIC is to teach the communication skills and techniques to SPANZA members and other Paediatric specialities that care for children having procedures, so they can manage every child including those with behavioural problems or developmental delays.


This EPIC workshop is aimed at perioperative nursing staff.

Attendees should be interested in gaining information and skills to understand the importance of preventing and managing procedural anxiety.
