We are delighted to announce the beautiful seaside town of Bournemouth as the host of the 2017 ASiT International Surgical Conference.
It is sure to be a great event with a fantastic line up of speakers along with 10 excellent pre-conference courses - including the new ASiT Leadership in Surgery course. This year, TriPOM will be represented in the Global Surgery Section. Be sure to come along and show your support.
This meeting, run by the British Geriatric Society, is aimed at all members of the multidisciplinary team.
It is increasingly recognised that there is a need to have geriatric medicine input in surgical pathways for older people to improve patient outcomes & experiences. However the introduction of geriatric medicine specialists into complex surgical environments is highly challenging and evidence of successful service developments is sparse. With the increased pressure on budgets, making the case for funding to develop new services without robust evidence is also difficult.
This second national UK conference, which is aimed at all members of the multidisciplinary perioperative team, focuses on improving and enhancing perioperative medicine with a focus on high risk surgical patients and those with comorbid conditions following the 2015 report by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
Through national updates , and practical case studies the conference aims to improve the perioperative pathway for these patients, improving patient outcomes and efficiency.
Dr Sam Bampoe and Dr John Whittle, Founders of TriPOM will be talking about their experiences of designing and implementing a perioperative medicine pathway.
