This workshop will be run in collaboration with and accredited by the Perioperative Exercise Testing and Training Society (POETTS, UK – http://poetts.co.uk/home) and will provide clinicians with comprehensive knowledge and skills in the conduct and interpretation of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) and CPET-based exercise training for prehabilitation relevant to the perioperative period.
There will be lectures by international experts interspersed with tutorials and case discussions. The course will also have a number of CPET demonstrations with live volunteers. To facilitate close participant interaction and personalised teaching the course is capped at 40 participants.
Venue: The 1st day of the course will be conducted at The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Parkville, Melbourne (adjacent to the University of Melbourne campus) to facilitate access to CPET testing facilities.
Prehabilitation involves multidisciplinary interventions (exercise, haematinic, and nutritional optimisation etc.) aimed at optimising the physiological and psychological reserves of patients presenting for surgery prior to the stress of major surgery in order to achieve better post-operative outcomes.
This half-day symposium will involve international leaders and experienced researchers in the field and will provide an up to date overview of prehabilitation in relation to major surgery. You will acquire the skills and knowledge to take back to your hospital to set up a ‘prehab’ service for your own patients.
Venue: Grand Hyatt Hotel, Collins Street, Melbourne CBD.
This allows attendance of the 7th Annual Australasian Symposium of Perioperative Medicine on “Measuring, Managing and Minimising Risk” (commencing 13:00)
