Benchmarking your Paediatric Day Surgery Service
This practical paediatric NHS conference will focus on all aspects of delivering and supporting children before and after day surgery. Hear case study presentations and share best practice advice with your colleagues from across the country to enable you to set up, establish or progress day surgery effectively.
When national guidance recommends that paediatric surgery should be delivered in a day surgery setting when possible, this conference will allow you to dive into the practicalities of optimising your service. Utilise this unique opportunity to benchmark your service and get to grips with building and sustaining a service, providing day surgery in the community, implementing nurse-led discharge and providing quality pre and post-surgical care.
This interactive and case study driven NHS conference will help you to overcome the barriers and obstacles for delivering an effective day surgery service. Discover realistic ways that your service can:
- Sustain an efficient and safe service for children
- Explore national guidance and standards
- Implement nurse-led discharge
- Ensure you provide appropriate pre and post-op support for patients and their families
- Prepare the families and children for surgery day
- Incorporate play therapists into your service
- Improve your follow-up for children
- Discuss how day surgery can work for your hospital and local area
- Discover the variations between DGH and tertiary services
- Set up paediatric day surgery in the community
This day is specifically designed for attendance by the whole surgery team who are responsible for caring for the children, parents and families, whilst the child is undergoing pre-op, surgery and post-op. We would expect attendance from, but not limited to:
- Paediatric Surgeons and Consultants
- Paediatric Matrons, Sisters, Nurses and Managers
