Day Surgery Urology: Transforming Your Service - BADS Conference

Wed, 20 Nov 2024

Virtual, Online

Follow the conference on X #BADSurology

A Joint British Association of Day Surgery & HCUK Virtual Conference

Urology is a specialty with a high volume of older, more comorbid patients that benefit from access to Day Surgery. Since Covid-19 there is a huge surgical backlog and utilising Day Surgery pathways to reduce this is ever important

This virtual, one-day conference aims to provide tools to improve your day case rates for many common urological procedures from pre-operative assessment tips to expert urological techniques and new approaches to the procedures themselves. Hear from BADS experts and specialist urologists how they approach and implement their day case pathways to maximise the day surgery numbers.

Sustainability in the current environmental situation is a consideration that must also be addressed. The National GIRFT fellow will talk about this approach in urology pathways.

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 – new techniques

  • Day case management of ureteric stones

  • Day surgery focused anaesthetic approaches to urological surgery

  • Pre-operative assessment techniques in the older, frail urology patient.

  • Pitfalls and obstacles to overcome – how ‘they’ did it

  • The conference will also describe how to move specific procedures to an outpatient pathway

  • Novel approaches to managing post-operative urine retention and attaining discharge for day surgery patients

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