Perioperative care for the future of surgery beyond the pandemic
Perioperative care is all aspects of multi-disciplinary care from the moment an operation is contemplated until full recovery at home. This includes Shared Decision Making, preparation for surgery and prehabilitation, education, clear guidance and trans-disciplinary working. Our evidence shows this approach halves complications and improves efficiency.
Join us at 6pm on Thursday 18 February to hear from Dr David Selwyn, Consultant Anaesthetist and Director at the Centre for Perioperative Care (CPOC), Lawrence Mudford, Patient representative, Dr Jugdeep Dhesi, Consultant Geriatrician and Deputy Director at CPOC, Mrs Scarlett McNally, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, RCS England Council member and Deputy Director at CPOC and Dr Louise Bates, Consultant Anaesthetist.
They will be discussing perioperative care with a particular focus on the new green paper from the CPOC that is set to highlight how to achieve excellence in each part of perioperative care to improve surgery for the future.
