This panel discussion reacts to various questions from the online audience and those in attendance.

Questions include; Is there any good evidence for the use of wearable tech in prehabilitation? How come, if the evidence is almost there, prehabilitation is not yet included in every pathway? In this respect, is change just around the corner? How do we have patients are partners rather than passive participants? What are the benefits of prehabilitation which can be seen in two weeks? How does one go about setting up a streamlined preoperative service? What would be the most important outcome for any prehabilitation trial? In a usually sedintary patient, how do we engage them in exercise training and prehabilitation?
