Venue: webinar
Date: 17 December 2020 8:00pm to 17 December 2020 09:00pm

Many drivers are working to reduce length of stay for patients following knee and hip replacement including COVID-19 and rising costs. Studies have shown that outpatient surgery is possible for around 15% of patients in unselected cohorts in "socialised health systems".

In this webinar, panellists discussed the merits of the goal of day 0 discharge, how to optimise both early discharge and long term outcomes and the potential future role for digital health in "rapid recovery" pathways.

Panellists will include:

  • Dr Andrew Ellis, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Royal North Shore Hospital
  • Dr Sam Martin, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Grafton Base Hospital
