Resource Description

This 53-minute webinar by Primary Health Tasmania and Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH) provided GP colleagues and anaesthetists to an opportunity for open conversations on patients awaiting surgery.

The "wait list" has the potential to be a "preparation List" to optimize patient health while awaiting procedures. The session addressed key topics such as determining medical fitness for surgery, implementing strategies to enhance fitness, navigating challenges in patient management and communication, and exploring the perioperative care framework recommended by ANZCA. There were also insights into new initiatives within the perioperative space at RHH, fostering a comprehensive approach to patient care and management.
