ABOUT ACS 2016

The theme for ACS 2016 is patient-centred risk assessment, risk communication and decision-making for high-risk patients undergoing surgery.

Our keynote speakers are Professor Scott Beattie, Department of Anesthesia, University of Toronto and Associate Professor Tom Weiser, Department of Surgery, Stanford University.

Prof. Beattie will take a fresh look at the high-risk patient undergoing non-cardiac surgery. He will also discuss how teams work and how to choose them.

Prof. Weiser is a general and trauma surgeon, and surgical intensivist. He will discuss how we manage uncertainty in perioperative outcomes and how we can improve quality of healthcare both locally and globally.

We will look in more detail at specific high-risk groups such as the frail elderly patient and the obese patient. Other topics include risk assessment and communicating of risk to our patients, decision-making and a look at the ethical issues around care of high-risk patients.

Join us for ACS 2016 for what will be an outstanding symposium.
