Optimising the Elective Surgical Pathway
This interactive NHS workshop will focus on the delivery of pre-operative assessment throughout the whole surgical pathway, from diagnosis to recovery. Discover how to improve the patient journey, develop a staffing strategy and promote cost efficiency whilst progressing productivity and reducing bottle necks.
When effectively run pre-operative assessment is the key to a successful surgical pathway, this event will enable you to implement the changes you need to transform your pre-op and surgery services. In addition, you will build an action plan to take back to your role which will enable you to take the next steps toward a more efficient service.
Take one day out and advance your pre-operative assessment service by benchmarking your current position with your NHS peers. Discover new and innovative ideas which will transform your strategy by joining together with your pre-op colleagues to:
- Explore linking outpatients, pre-op and surgery
- Demonstrate the benefit of virtual clinics and patient led assessment
- Engage patients with pre-op practises
- Integrate EPAC into your surgical pathway
- Maintain effective ‘behind the scene’ planning
- Meet the requirements for educating patients pre-op
- Enhance recovery processes
- Utilise your staff more effectively
- Build a ‘one-stop-shop’ for newly diagnosed patients
This interactive workshop will provide you with a unique and exclusive opportunity to share ideas and best practice advice with other services as well as benchmark your own service. Network with NHS representatives including:
- Pre-Operative Assessment Managers, Leads and Coordinators
- Nurse Practitioners
- Theatre Managers and Leads
