Global Conference on Perioperative Medicine: Bending the acute care cost curve and Improving perioperative and oncological outcomes

  • About
  • Ratings & Reviews

Perioperative Medicine is rapidly evolving with changing demographics of patient population.To date, there have been no exclusive conferences of meetings devoted to the perioperative care of the cancer patient. The executive summary of the IOM's report on "Retooling for an Aging America", noted that a new generation of older Americans with a significantly higher rate of cancer burden will seek health care. Cancer accounts for nearly 1 out of every 4 deaths in the United States. In addition, for all cancers combined, people 65 years of older have an incidence rate 10 times greater, and the mortality rate 16 times higher than the rate for younger patients. This therefore, is an emerging "tsunami" that the government and the society have to be prepared to deal with. This meeting will also focus on effective strategies on delivering value based perioperative care with patient centric (minimizing symptom burden, and enhancing functional recovery) focus.
