Anaesthesia for the elderly and frail, when and how
  • Host: Prof. Concezione Tommasino (IT)
  • Speakers: Dr. Paul McConnell (UK), Dr. Başak Ceyda (TR), and Dr. Finn Radtke (DK)

Up to half of the geriatric patients undergoing major surgery may suffer from postoperative delirium, which may result in short-, intermediate-, and long-term cognitive impairments, reduced quality of life, and even death. Additionally, many patients experience unwanted symptoms and side effects following anaesthesia (e.g. nausea, vomiting, high pain, stress, anxiety, reduced wellbeing), and they experience these symptoms at an unsatisfactory level. Moreover, most clinicians do not receive systematic feedback concerning the symptoms and wellbeing of their patients, following their discharge from the Operating room, recovery room, hospital ward to their home. This prevents even the most basic cause and effect learning. 

JOIN LIVE and take part in the discussion of the ethical implications, quality management issues and practical clinical solutions raised during this webinar.
