A Joint British Association of Day Surgery & HCUK Virtual Conference
Significant, national variation in the delivery of day case urological surgery was identified prior to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent to this waiting lists have risen to an unprecedented level. Maximising urological surgical day case performance is a major part of the NHS Elective Recovery programme, instigated to tackle this huge backlog in care.
This virtual, one-day conference aims to provide tools to improve your day case rates for many urological procedures and see how experts from BADS and those in specialist urology fields approach and implement their day case pathways and maximise the day surgery numbers. An update from GIRFT experts will allow you to see the national picture from their point of view.
BADS recommends a multidisciplinary, team approach and you will hear from nurses, surgeons and anaesthetists about how to work together and use expert practice to increase safe day surgery delivery efficiency. This includes:
Management of bladder cancer (TURBT pathways)
Bladder outflow obstruction surgery – moving TURP to day case pathways
Day case management of ureteric stones
Day surgery focussed anaesthetic approaches to urological surgery
Pitfalls and obstacles to overcome – how ‘they’ did it
How to move specific procedures to an outpatient pathway and the role of specialist nurses
Novel approaches to managing post-operative urine retention and attaining discharge for day surgery patients
