These speakers will share their wealth of knowledge on the evidence and strategies for implementing evidence based practice to facilitate enhanced recovery after surgery, remodeling the perioperative pathway, with integrated consumer (our patients) development.

The workshop based afternoon will allow participants to attend two (of five options) one-hour sessions; including, overcoming barriers to implementation of practice change, a dynamic interactive workshop on bringing about change, how to write an effective business case, and hands-on experience with Advanced Haemodynamic Monitoring systems.
