TopMedTalk | What's your 2020 vision?

What are the big things to watch in 2020? "Renablement, rehabilitation and readmission" from a patient perspective and "training compotence, resillience and 'burn out,'" from the practitioner's point of view, according to one of our contributors on this piece.

What about Enhanced Recovery, is that still set to be big in 2020? Is it methadone we should be thinking about? Is automation something on our collective horizon? What about the "B word", "Brexit"; will political change in the UK bring opportunity?

The ongoing issue in the US of opioid addiction and overuse is discussed. We also ask if the coming year will spread more light on what it really means to be "ready for surgery"? And, how and what should we be thinking about our profession's environmental impact?

Here's a link to the Perioperative Quality Initiative (PQIP) page:
