We begin with a question from the audience; ‘how do we drive change in our institutions towards enhanced recovery after surgery?’
The GIRFT (Getting It Right First Time) project is explained. The Health Foundation is also mentioned.
This edition of TopMedTalk was recorded at The Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH) live from an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) leadership forum.
The conversation features questioner Paul Hutchings, Consultant Anaesthetist at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, alongside Professor Monty Mythen and his two guests; Dr Simeon West, consultant anaethetist at (University College London Hospitals) UCLH who sits on the board at Regional Anaesthesia UK (RAUK) and Mark Harper, Consultant Anaesthetist at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, with a research interest in the prevention of perioperative hypothermia and the use of cold water adaptation for thearaputic purposes.
