Joint RCoA and RCSEd meeting: Prehabilitation and perioperative care
A one-day conference in the highly topical area of enhanced patient preparation prior to major surgery (prehabilitation). The conference is intended for medical and allied healthcare professionals engaged in patient care before, during and after major surgery. The programme comprises a range of cutting-edge topics, delivered in a lecture-based format by international and high profile speakers from a range of specialties.

The content is specifically designed to cover integrated cross specialty working, whilst learning from existing successful models, to enable delivery of high quality perioperative care to patients.
