We were all disappointed not to deliver our annual conference in 2020 but are looking ahead to Liverpool 2021 with the hope that we will be able to meet in September as planned. We are, of course, mindful of the ongoing pandemic and will continue to review and adjust plans if necessary. We are already provisioning for a hybrid element to allow those who will be unable to join us physically and hope that you will save the date for #IP2021.
Topics this year include, but are not limited to:
What happens to Infection Prevention & Control during a pandemic? Drivers of pandemics, Compassion in Infection Prevention & Control, PPE challenges , COVID-19 reflections and learning, Infection Prevention outside of Acute Care, and more.
There will be a practical workshop in leadership and an opportunity to take part in research.
This is an exciting, educational, and practice-enhancing conference. On behalf of the IP2021 SPC, we look forward to welcoming you to Liverpool.
According to NHS Improvement, over 291,000 more routine operations could be carried out per year by improving the scheduling of surgical lists. Variation in theatre productivity between different trusts and different specialities was demonstrated including late starts, early finishes and delays between operations.
The time lost to these could have potentially been used to do up to 291,327 more operations which represents a 16.8% increase. COVID-19 has caused a significant reduction in planned operations and appointments, with a lower percentage of patients treated within 18 weeks than at any time since June 2008. There is a backlog of operations and hidden patients, yet to be added to the list because referrals have been at their lowest recorded level.
Join us at this timely national show to explore the key issues that operating theatres are currently facing. The event will cover key strategies for reducing waiting times in operating theatres, improving safety and outcomes of surgical services and achieving greater productivity and capacity.
It looks at the future of surgery and how innovation in technology will drive significant improvements. Case study examples will illustrate how teams have transformed their practice and high-level keynotes will give the latest overview of policy developments.
We are delighted to announce Future Surgery 2021 will be a physical event taking place on 9 - 10 November 2021 at ExCel London.
In partnership with Royal College of Surgeons of England, it is set to be the biggest gathering of surgical and operating theatre teams with 100+ speakers, 1500 + 2000+ surgeons and overall, over 3,000 delegates set to attend this November.
