AAA Meeting 2017 Edinburgh: Alice’s Journey
The 2017 Age Anaesthesia Association meeting will be held in Edinburgh in May and is being co-hosted by the University of Edinburgh Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine Department.
The theme of this year’s meeting is the perioperative management of an older person undergoing major surgery from initial presentation through preoperative assessment, intraoperative and postoperative care. This will be brought into focus by using a case-based discussion featuring Alice who is a 85 year old woman presenting for major colorectal surgery.
The speakers, who are recognised experts in their fields have been asked to devote the last few minutes of their presentations to Alice’s case in terms of options, risk and benefits, decision making and management.
