EBPOM London 2020 | Perioperative team: a surgeon’s view

This piece looks at some of the advantages to having a perioperative interdisciplinary team reducing complications, understanding and discussing risk, facilitating better shared decision making and increased patient satisfaction, even among those who - as part of this process - decide not to go ahead with an operation.

It also incorporates evidence regarding what we know about COVID-19; "The risks ... of the COVID-19 virus is that if people contract it during or after their surgery, they have a much worse result with perhaps 51% pulmonary complications or 24% mortality".

The World Health Organisation report mentioned in this piece, "Smoking greatly increases risk of complications after surgery", is here: https://www.who.int/news/item/20-01-2020-smoking-greatly-increases-risk-of-complications-after-surgery

The Montgomery ruling is covered on a previous TopMedTalk in more detail in "Sunday Special | Being on the right side of the law" here: https://www.topmedtalk.com/sunday-special-being-on-the-right-side-of-the-law-2/
