"Increasing the richness and the reach of what we do" is the mantra of 'Anesthesiology'; hear from its Editor in Chief how it managed to self study and discover the essential idea behind the journal: "trusted evidence, from discovery to practice". Conversation then moves on to methadone, the overlooked opiate; where do you use it and what sort of dose is appropriate? What are the benefits of including this in your practice and should it really be considered in the same category as most other opioids? The podcasts mentioned are here: ...info_outline EBPOM Conference Highlight 2.21 | Lessons on EPOCH in the UK

When it comes to blood pressure, hypotension is associated with poor outcomes for patients, how do we react to this? How do we manage and avoid hypotension where possible?

Presented by Dr Simon Davies, Consultant Anaesthetist at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.info_outline Sunday Special | The Perioperative Cognition Workshop - Part 3

Perioperative medicine is defined here as: "the practice of patient centred multidisciplinary and integrated medical care of patients from the moment of contemplation of surgery until full recovery". Population health is defined as: "the health outcomes of a group of individuals including the distribution of such outcomes within the group". Do the two compliment each other? Use this concise 15 minute presentation to help build the case for a perioperative care programme at your institution. Presented by Sol Aronson, tenured professor at Duke University and Executive Vice Chairman in the...info_outline Periop SIG18 | Can we improve the care of Older Vascular Surgical Patients?
If we look at the evidence, is there a case for "vascular geriatrics"? Co-managed care in vascular surgery could be a way forward, this talk builds the case for change. Readmission rates in this group are dissapointing, how do we reasonably tackle this issue? How do we balance questions regarding appropriateness and need for surgery in this area? What about the priorities of the patient, do they align with our aims? Is it possible there are geriatiricans who are already doing co-management with vascular surgeons? Is it fair to say that vascular surgeons need help the most? The talk is followed...info_outline EBPOM Highlight | Exercise prehabilitation for patients facing primary surgical resection of colorectal cancer
This piece is taken from the free papers presentations given at EBPOM 2019.

Can we make a real change in their objectively measured fitness? Is there patient buy in? What is the strain on an institution's resources?
