“Now we’re here at this Pocapalooza” – POC, standing for Perioperative Care and “apalooza” being an extravagant event. However, as one of our guests suggests, perhaps we should call this one a “CPOC-apalooza!” as a lot of our focus is on The CPOC (Centre for Perioperative Care).

Presented by Desiree Chappell with Monty Mythen, and their guests Mike Grocott – a frequent TopMedTalk anchor – and Professor of Anaesthesia and critical care at the University of Southampton and David Selwin, Medical Director at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
