"I hope to impress upon you that this is a topic that we can and must do better at ... no malnourished patient should ever have elective surgery without having a nutrition assessment done" This piece is presented in two parts; this is part 2. Using perioperative nutrition to optimize our patients outcomes; data shows us that nutrition therapy or nutrition optimization is literally life saving. Anyone who uses evidence as their guide know it has to be part of their practice. Enhanced Recovery After surgery, sometimes called "fast track surgery" is about ensuring we apply the best information we...info_outline Nutrition and metabolism before surgery - PART 1 of 2 | EBPOM London 2020

It's widely understood that high value care during, before and immediately after surgery is optimal whereas poor quality care in the perioperative period produces long term difficulties which are compounded by the acute stresses produced during and immediately after a procedure. This talk covers three main areas; surgical care for patients in Greater Manchester, "ERAS+"; prehabilitation for cancer, for the population of Greater Manchester; how Manchester has supported patients during the time of COVID19. This piece is mentioned in the introduction and serves as a useful compliment to the talk,...info_outline Perioperative team: a surgeon’s view | EBPOM London 2020
This piece looks at some of the advantages to having a perioperative interdisciplinary team reducing complications, understanding and discussing risk, facilitating better shared decision making and increased patient satisfaction, even among those who - as part of this process - decide not to go ahead with an operation. It also incorporates evidence regarding what we know about COVID-19; "The risks ... of the COVID-19 virus is that if people contract it during or after their surgery, they have a much worse result with perhaps 51% pulmonary complications or 24% mortality". The World Health...info_outline Introduction to the Pathophysiology of COVID 19 | Dingle 2020
This piece is essential listening for any medical practitioner. The pathophysiology of COVID 19 is now being understood, although there are still a number of outstanding questions. This piece attempts to answer those questions; where does it come from, what do we know about it now, what would we like to know about it in the future? Why is the disease more pronounced in men, how come obesity seems to be a factor, what's the mechanism which leaves children less at risk than adults and senior citizens? This piece is a standout part of Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine's (EBPOM) Dingle 2020...info_outline Depth of anaesthesia and long term outcomes | Dingle 2020
"More than 300 million patients have surgery annually worldwide and an increasing proportion of them are elderly and at risk of perioperative adverse events. There's very few proven primary or secondary prevention measures, and the resources for monitoring and trading complications are inadequate. So - more action is required". This piece looks at the evidence as regards perioperative outcomes for the elderly, depth of anesthesia and mortality. Also, what's the latest on depth of anesthesia and delirium? Presented by Kate Leslie, Honorary Professor, Monash University, Melbourne, VIC,...info_outline The Changes that Change Culture - panel discussion | EBPOM Chicago

Cancer continues to present a seirous challenge to health care practitioners, particularly with elderly patients. Operations on cancer patients can occur for a variety of reasons, how do we ensure we make decisions that are right for them? Often cancer surgery is both urgent and emergent; the question of 'how long do we have to prepare' is paramount. How do we get patients to a surgical option that may be curative? How do we deal wirth "deconditioned" patients who have been subjected to difficult treatments as part of their cancer care? What are immune checkpoint inhibitors? What is 'targeted chemotherapy'? What are the pulmonary side effects of chemotherapy? Furthermore who do we deal with anemia in cancer Patients?
Finally the talk focuses upon post operative care.
