Preoperative Assessment and Optimisation of the Older Surgical Patient

  • Wellcome Collection 183 Euston Road London, England, NW1 United Kingdom (map)

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.
