Are your surgical teams reporting pressure in managing their Emergency demand? How does your surgical efficiency compare to other sites and states? Do you know what aspect of operational review you need to prioritise for maximum effectiveness? How do you start the conversation with your teams when you notice variation?

Surgery is a major cost centre and efficiency is key. Of course, well-managed surgical services must be safe and maximise patient outcomes. Best practice management can be challenging when these objectives are in conflict. 

This Improvement Group will delineate the data and 
innovations that help balance flow and optimise performance of your surgical theatre. It’s a significant opportunity for cross-jurisdictional sharing of contemporary practice and new ideas. Membership provides a sense of community with powerful networking.

The Workshop – Balancing the Emergency and Elective Surgical Load
With health departments targeting the reduction of elective surgery waiting times and the demand for emergency surgery simultaneously on the increase, it’s getting harder and harder for hospitals to balance the demands of both.

This year, as requested by our members, the hot topic is Balancing
the Emergency and Elective Surgical Load.

This is an important annual opportunity to hear from innovative peers, and even present your own work for the benefit of others and critical discussion. Additionally, you’ll enjoy listening to a range of relevant subject matter experts. Last year, for example, we featured speakers from the US and a presentation on how 3D printing can positively impact surgical services.

This year we will hear from experts and pool ideas in themed sessions including: Sessional expansion; Throughput increases; Technology assistance; New practice innovations and more.

Expect multiple short presentations in a rapid-fire exchange of
