Hear how you can transform your practice through team leadership, courage and a finely tuned awareness of the financial aspects of what you are trying to achieve. How can growth be tempered to suit the long term vision of a company? Why is teambuilding so crucial to large organisations? Can we determine the direction in which healthcare is evolving overall? Is 'population health in the perioperative space', a widely accepted future direction these days?

This piece focuses on the "Wessex Fit-4-Cancer Surgery Trial"; a unique multi-centre, efficacy pragmatic, factorial design, randomised controlled trial, with patient informed development and process evaluation "You wouldn't run a marathon without preparing," why would you want an operation where you don't get ready for a physically stressful event such as surgery? Prehabilitation is an obvious advantage, gathering the data which proves that is essential to perioperative medicine because it means we can show the advantages clearly to both patients and practitioners as well as looking at ways of...info_outline Desiree's Roundtable | Coordinating an Enhanced Recovery Program
How important is it to have a dedicated member of your team focused on starting, maintaining and coordinating your enhanced recovery programme? Does an enhanced recovery programme which comes from the grassroots need support early on in the process? How do you find the right people to support you once the process has begun? Also, how do you explain that these changes will actually reduce workload? The conversation moves into managing pain, both the reality of pain and the expectations which can, if handled correctly, help to reduce it. Finally, what are the three key aptitudes that an enhanced...info_outline TopMedTalk | Substance Use Disorder - Peer Support: An Empathetic Information Resource
"I know how to manage pain medication [...] addiction was the absolute last thing that would happen to me".

What is "The Brain Health Initiative"? Why is it that so many aspects of brain function are so hard to understand? Why is cognitive dysfunction such a difficult topic to discuss? How far away are we from the days when we will have a biomarker that can help us in this area? Desiree Chappell presents, with her guests; Dr Lee A. Fleisher Professor and Chair of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, University of Pennsylvania and Miles Berger, Neuroanesthesiologist at Duke University Medical Center.info_outline TopMedTalk | Andy Klien, Editor in Chief of Anaesthesia
Anaesthesia is the official journal of the Association of Anaesthetists with comprehensive coverage of publications in anaesthesia, ICU and pain. This piece gets into the detail of their hugely popular perioperative care supplement, a collaboration with BJS (formerly the British Journal of Surgery). Surgeons and Anaesthetists around the world are engaging in the debate as a result with thousands of tweets about the subject, after publication only days before the 2020 Winter Scientific Meeting. Further discussion covers prehabilitation, which aspects are backed up by evidence? What are the big...info_outline TopMedTalk | Henrik Kehlet and Nick Scott
"It's all about safety and recovery, it's not about speed"; this conversation focuses on enhanced recovery, are we getting it right and where are people getting it wrong? How reliable and well understood is the data behind it? Also, what are the current thoughts on perioperative steroids? How do we refocus and move back to enhanced recovery after surgery rather than "enhanced discharge" after surgery. Presented by Monty Mythen and Desiree Chappell with Sol Aronson, tenured Professor at Duke University, and their guests Henrik Kehlet, a gastrointestinal surgeon and former professor of surgery,...info_outline TopMedTalk | Simon Davies's 2020 Vision
In this piece we're joined by a TopMedTalk favorite for a few predictions regarding the year 2020.
