TopMedTalk | Lancet profile on Salome Maswime

"We've had the opportunity to catch up with some friends from Africa to tell us more about what is happening in their neck of the woods with perioperative medicine..."

We reference this piece in The Lancet here:

The African Surgical Outcomes Study (ASOS) is discussed in more detail here:

The above piece inspired the Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM) team to take action and organise a ground breaking night of live music and conversation about cutting edge scientific research; the now famous "POCAPALOOZA" - POC, perioperative care and "APALOOZA" meaning some form of festival.

In spite of the global pandemic, one of the world's leading medical communites, decided to organise an online international academic conference followed by a massive fundraising effort for perioperative research, in Africa.

"People in Africa are twice as likely to die from surgical complications.."
