However the introduction of geriatric medicine specialists into complex surgical environments is highly challenging and evidence of successful service developments is sparse. With the increased pressure on budgets, making the case for funding to develop new services without robust evidence is also difficult.
This event, designed by the growing group of dedicated clinicians, from across geriatric medicine, surgery and anaesthetics, will present case studies and lessons learned when developing services and gathering evidence for the effectiveness of structured elderly medicine input into surgical care pathways for older people.
All members of the MDT are encouraged to participate; Nurses, occupational therapists, anaesthetists, surgeons and psychiatrists.
Structured over the course of two days, delegates will benefit from practical advice and guidance regarding the perioperative management of the complex older surgical patient, whilst also hearing first hand experiences and advice on the set up and day to day running of a surgical-geriatric liaison service.
Improve knowledge of issues related to peri-operative care for older people undergoing both emergency and elective surgery
Explore effective models of service delivery and clinical care for older surgical patients
Facilitate collaboration between all stakeholders involved in the care of older surgical patients (across elderly medicine, anaesthesia, surgery, allied health care professionals and the voluntary sector)
