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.

A dedicated Prehabilitation Symposium (Friday, 8th December 2017) 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 achieving better outcomes for our patients.

The CPET Workshop and Prehabilitation Symposium will be followed on Saturday & Sunday (9-10 December 2017) by Perioperative Medicine Symposium in conjunction with EBPOM (UK).
