Description

Join us at The Innovations in Operating Theatres Conference 2018where leading experts will discuss the future of surgery in the NHS. Topics will include the newest innovations in surgical technologies, the implications of the latest Government health policies and the role the private sector can play in addressing staff shortages.

“Improving care is not an instant process.” – Clare Marx, President of the Royal College of Surgeons

In May 2016, official NHS statistics revealed more than 74,000 last minute cancellations of hospital operations in England, the highest in 15 years. Recent research suggests the real figure may be much higher. Shortages of staff and beds as well as pressure on A&E departments and poor social care for discharged patients are thought to be the main causes. While the vote to leave the European Union has raised concerns about potential recruitment problems, Clare Marx of the Royal College of Surgeons has urged colleagues to treat Brexit as an opportunity to drive up standards in patient safety. New technologies such as 3D printing and surgical robotics also look set to change the way doctors operate.

Themes on the day will include:

  • Effective clinical coding as a means of streamlining the scheduling process
  • Using technology to remove human error, not humans from the surgical process
  • Assessing the Never Events policy and framework
  • Innovation in integrated theatres now and in the future
  • Perfecting the operating theatre design and application process
  • The Eschmann Philosophy: Operating room integration
