This Conference is now Closed

A Joint BADS & HCUK Conference

Evidence supports a wide range of breast procedures, which can be delivered as a day case without compromising patient safety and the quality or experience of care. When the Department of Health recommended prioritising day case breast surgery in 2007, emphasis was placed on non-reconstructive operations but innovation by some surgical teams since, has successfully applied a day surgery ‘mindset’ to the management of a growing number of reconstructive procedures. In addition to improving patient outcomes, optimizing utilization of a day case admission pathway for breast surgery releases valuable in-patient resource for women who require post-operative monitoring following the most complex reconstructive procedures. Despite these benefits, wide variation in day surgery performance for both non-reconstructive and reconstructive breast surgery persists nationally. Usually, this results from misperceptions (health professional and managerial) about its benefits and the challenges associated with its implementation.

Attendance at this conference, which has been produced by the British Association of Day Surgery, will enable delegates to develop a day case management pathway for breast surgery and potential to improve trust management of breast surgical demand and capacity. The basic elements of a day surgery pathway will be presented including the evaluation of the quality of care provided. Specific details of multidisciplinary care specific to breast surgery management will be presented by acknowledged experts in the field from a variety of backgrounds, reflecting the importance of the multi-disciplinary team in successful delivery of day surgery care for these patients.

Attending this conference will enable you to: 

  • Hear about changes identified by the GiRFT breast workstream to help tackle variations in the way breast surgery is currently delivered in the UK
  • Understand how introducing day case breast surgery enhances patient-centred care and strengthens the therapeutic relationship
  • Learn from outstanding practice in day case non-oncoplastic and oncoplastic breast surgery
  • Understand how you can improve day case breast surgery service in your unit
  • Identify key strategies for patient selection
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation
  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve and optimise their breast surgery day case service 

100% of delegates at the last conference on this subject would recommend the conference to a colleague.
