The Perioperative Patient Journey: from preoperative, operative, and post-operative.

The Perioperative Patient Journey: from preoperative, operative, and post-operative

Including operating theatre and surgical ward Nursing.

This Conference will provide vital information about the care of the surgical patient – preop, operative, and postop. This will include the use of contemporary case studies as the content explores the patient journey through the operating theatre and into the surgical ward environment.

Surgical adverse events are not uncommon. Australian research has shown that adverse surgical events were highly preventable in 47.6 per cent of cases.

The key to preventing deaths intraoperatively and in the first 48 hours after surgery is timely, high-quality pre- and postoperative patient care.

This Conference will enhance knowledge of the Nurse working in the operating suite (perianaesthesia and perioperative nurse) and Nurses working in the surgical ward.

Learning Outcomes

  • To explore and more deeply understand the surgical process and how this may impact on adverse events,
  • To provide evidence-based information about the preoperative, operative, and post-operative assessment requirements to prevent poor outcomes,
  • To discuss and understand the physiology and treatment of some perioperative emergency situations
  • To come away feeling educated, empowered and realising that perioperative and Surgical Nurses are brilliant!
