RCoA 03 – Adverse outcomes and patient optimisation



Adverse outcomes, we all know they happen but how do we handle them, record them and avoid them in the first place? The discussion then moves to (Patient Recorded Outcome Measures) PROMS.

Patient optimisation is then discussed. Exercise, could it be so effective because it works as an anti inflammatory? A deep dive into the research on that is contained in this conversation.

The RELIEF trial is discussed as the team get into a discussion about what a patient sees as a good outcome. How do we communicate the risks, possible benefits and limitations, of surgery to patients?

Also in this piece, find out about a fascinating community-based multimodal prehabilitation service.

Desiree Chappell and Joff Lacey are presenting with their guests Dr Mark Edwards, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine at The University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Truth and Professor Gerard Danjoux, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Sleep Medicine at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
