Laparoscopic Right Hemicolectomy

NHS Doncaster Royal Infirmary: Student Nurse Teaching Resource

This project I worked closely with the Senior Nurse Walker in the G.I department of Doncaster Royal Infirmary. I approached the hospital in search of a relevant project to evolve my skills in medical illustration, and learn first hand from the hospital about the operations. This project took me into the theatres to gain first hand knowledge of the operations and document moments of surgery, which I then took away with me to produce a booklet for the hospital detailing the steps involved in the operation in order to aid the teaching of student nurses. Along the way I learnt a lot about operating theatres, layout, book design, graphic design, and digital editing.

Traditional works in colour pencil and digitally enhanced in Adobe Photoshop. You can obtain a copy of the full Teaching resource PDF by emailing me at: emmarosewalkerillustrations@outlook.com
