CPET & Prehabilitation Symposium (incorporating POETTS (UK) accredited CPET course)


Wednesday 24th & Thursday 25th October 2018

This workshop, accredited by the Perioperative Exercise Testing and Training Society (POETTS, UK – http://poetts.co.uk/home), brings together UK and Australian experts in Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) with a focus on its relevance to the perioperative period especially in the context of risk stratification and guiding prehabilitation prior to major surgery.

Join us in learning the essentials of performing CPET and interpreting CPET reports. You will also learn.

A dedicated Prehabilitation Symposium (Thursday, 25th October 2018) will be integrated into Day 2 of the CPET Workshop and bring together experts in the field to provide updates on the role of preoperative exercise, nutrition and correction of anaemia in preparation for surgery for deconditioned patient – an innovative approach to optimise modifiable risk factors and thereby achieve better outcomes for our patients.

The CPET Workshop and Prehabilitation Symposium will be followed on Thursday (PM) by the 7th Annual Australasian Symposium on Perioperative Medicine (http://www.anzca.edu.au/fellows/special-interest-groups/perioperative-medicine/periopertaive-sig-meeting).
