FutureLearn: Perioperative Medicine in Action

 with  Philip Sherrard and Abigail Whiteman

Make a difference: Improve patient outcomes with perioperative medicine

Too many patients die or suffer prolonged complications following surgery.

Perioperative medicine is an emerging multi-disciplinary approach optimising the care of the high-risk surgical patient.

This course from UCL will cover all things perioperative medicine, helping you learn the key concepts to enable you to reduce healthcare costs and most importantly improve patient safety.

This RCoA endorsed course is aimed at all interested healthcare professionals, both medical and allied health professionals. This would include anaesthetists, surgeons, care-of-the-elderly physicians, pre-assessment nurses, surgical ward nurses, operating department staff, physiotherapists and medical managers, emphasising that enhanced care and improved outcomes depend on a multidisciplinary approach.

Healthcare professionals might find the the Certificate of Achievement for this course useful for providing evidence of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), or commitment to their career.

Although some of the statistics and guidelines are UK specific, the key concepts and learning aims are relevant at an international level.
