Thu, 10 Oct 2024

Virtual, Online

Follow the conference on X #HipReplacement

A Joint British Association of Day Surgery & HCUK Virtual Conference

The British Association of Day Surgery are pleased to announce this virtual conference focusing on Day Case Total Hip Replacements 

The number of patients waiting for orthopaedic surgery remains at record levels, more than 800,000 in march 2023 following the huge disruption caused by Covid-19 and more recently the industrial action with the NHS.

In response to the Governments Elective Recovery Plan and Get It Right First Time (GIRFT) programme, it is clear we must work differently to reduce variation and respond to these unprecedented waits. With continued pressure on in-patient beds, Day Case Total Hip Replacement Surgery presents an ideal opportunity to explore and expand the possibilities to increase day surgery activity.

Increasing the delivery of day case across the NHS is achievable and it is important to share learning so that day case becomes the normal in units across the UK. This one day virtual conference will discuss briefly the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on Day Case Total Hip Replacement surgery. It will highlight key aspects of the day surgery pathway, the importance of the multidisciplinary team, regional anaesthesia and using data in delivering successful Day Case Total Hip Replacement surgery.

National experts from the British Association of Day Surgery and leading Orthopaedic units will share experience including:

  • How to develop a high-class day surgery service

  • Analgesia for day case arthroplasty

  • Use of short acting spinal anaesthesia or general anaesthetia for major orthopaedic day surgery procedures

  • Pathways and protocols for day case arthroplasty

  • Pitfalls to avoid and obstacles to overcome – how they did it

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

  • Supports CPD professional development and acts as revalidation evidence. This course provides 5hrs training for CPD subject to peer group approval for revalidation purposes
