A Joint British Association of Day Surgery & HCUK Virtual Conference
Never before has day case surgery been as important to our patients as it now as we embark on our recovery from Covid-19. Not only have we seen a huge rise in the numbers waiting orthopaedic surgery with 588,658 on the waiting list, the highest it has been for a decade and nearly 70,000 waiting over a year, but we have also seen reductions in staff and bed numbers.
Day case anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery and uni-compartment knee replacement surgery has been routine practice for over 10 years in some trusts. Building on this, leading units are now providing total hip and knee replacement surgery on a day case basis. It has been proven to be safe, achievable and has been replicated across a number of trusts.
There is now growing importance in increasing the delivery of day case total joints across the NHS and it is important to share learning so that day case arthroplasty is achievable in all units across the UK.
Join us to learn how this achievable for our patients and learn how digital technology can aid this and move us towards a virtual model of care.
This conference will enable you to:
- Network with colleagues who are working to improve day surgery orthopaedic services
Learn from outstanding practice in day surgery arthroplasty
Reflect on national developments and learning
Understand how you can improve your day surgery pathways
Identify key strategies for implementation of a day surgery joint replacement service
Ensure you are up to date with the latest national practice
Self assess and reflect on your own practice
Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
