The British Association of Day Surgery are pleased to announce this virtual conference focusing on Day Case Total Hip Replacements Back
The number of patients waiting for orthopaedic surgery remains at record levels, more than 800,000 in march 2023 following the huge disruption caused by Covid-19 and more recently the industrial action with the NHS.
In response to the Governments Elective Recovery Plan and Get It Right First Time (GIRFT) programme, it is clear we must work differently to reduce variation and respond to these unprecedented waits. With continued pressure on in-patient beds, Day Case Total Hip Replacement Surgery presents an ideal opportunity to explore and expand the possibilities to increase day surgery activity.
Increasing the delivery of day case across the NHS is achievable and it is important to share learning so that day case becomes the normal in units across the UK. This one day virtual conference will discuss briefly the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on Day Case Total Hip Replacement surgery. It will highlight key aspects of the day surgery pathway, the importance of the multidisciplinary team, regional anaesthesia and using data in delivering successful Day Case Total Hip Replacement surgery.
National experts from the British Association of Day Surgery and leading Orthopaedic units will share experience including:
- How to develop a high-class day surgery service
- Analgesia for day case arthroplasty
- Use of short acting spinal anaesthesia or general anaesthetia for major orthopaedic day surgery procedures
