In part two of this series we continue looking at the POPS (Proactive care for Older People undergoing Surgery) team at Guy’s and St Thomas’s Hospital. How does having a POPS team facilitate specialist education at the institution? What other opportunities are there for patients and staff as a result of innovations such as this?
Finally – what are the drugs that anaesthetists commonly prescribe to patients which people who work on this side of the service aren’t so keen on?
Desiree Chappell presents, with additional questions thrown in by Monty Mythen, as they speak with their guests; Magda Sbai, specialist registrar at Guy’s and St Thomas’s, Jason Cross, advanced nurse practitioner and Nursing lead for the POPS team, Claire Gallagher, Deputy clinical nurse specialist and Dr Jugdeep Dhesi, Clinical Lead, POPS and Consultant Geriatrician, Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Trust.
