The first ever Future Surgery event to take place in-person saw thousands of clinicians uniting at ExCeL London.
Over the two days, exhibitors shared insights and training, enabling the entire perioperative team to reflect and learn how technology and new ways of working are revolutionising patient care and outcomes.
Alongside 96 exhibitors showcasing the latest developments in surgery, the Future Surgery show took place on the 9-10 November – bringing together over 150 world-renowned speakers and experts as part of a CPD accredited programme. The event was co-produced with the Royal College of Surgeons of England to explore a wide array of core topics – from disruptive technology, connectivity and human factors; to global health innovation, training and research.
The event hosted, for the first time, the annual Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT) Innovation Summit to promote best practice in surgical training. The findings of the COVID-STAR study1 have previously revealed the extent of the challenges facing surgical training in the wake of COVID-19 – 41% of survey respondents reported that they had been redeployed during the pandemic and there was a complete loss of training in elective operating, outpatient settings and endoscopy settings for over 65% of trainees. Only 9% reported that they would meet all required competences.2
