Peri-operative patient safety is increasingly underpinned by engineering technology. Medical care is complex, which creates the need for a systems approach to peri-operative care. Engineers already apply this approach to ensure the safety of their designs and the principles are transferable to the clinical setting. This conference will explore how they might be applied in peri-operative care. It will cover sessions on anaesthesia and intensive care, surgery and engineering systems for safety. The conference is organised in partnership with the Royal College of Surgeons, Royal College of Anaesthetists and IPEM.
The event is approved by the Royal College of Anaesthetists for 5 CPD credits.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Full ticket price £100
Trainee ticket price £50
