Trainees with an Interest in Peri-operative Medicine (TriPOM) – a new cross-speciality educational collaboration in peri-operative medicine

Anaesthesia News, January 2017

Drs Matthew Wilson, Peter Odor, Sam Bampoe, John Whittle

By now many of you will be increasingly familiar with the term ‘perioperative medicine’ (POM), which encompasses a refreshed way of managing the integrated, multidisciplinary medical care of the surgical patient. The principles are not necessarily new, but the success of projects such as Enhanced Recovery After Surgery in the Europe and the Perioperative Surgical Home [1] in the USA, have triggered a renaissance in interest and excitement around how re-modelling the surgical patient journey can improve clinical effectiveness and patient outcomes. Over the past five years the concept of POM has generated discussion and debate on precisely what we as anaesthetists want for the future of our specialty: a dichotomy between a focused technical approach to delivering high quality anaesthesia in relative isolation, versus the broader scope of practice encompassing elements of nonoperative patient care [2].
