Discussion begins with an overview of the conference and its roots. Special mention is made regarding the Frank Michota Memorial Lecture which takes place on the Friday morning of the conference.

Also on this podcast, what is a “Respect Officer”? Why is respect so important in perioperative care? How does improving ‘the culture of safety’ also help to improve outcomes? Should we be overly concerned about high cancelation rates for surgery? And what are the advantages of a preoperative risk assessment clinic (PRAC)?

Presented by Desiree Chappell and Monty Mythen with their guest Amir Jaffer, Chief Medical Officer, New York Presbyterian/ Queens.
