Webinar: Recording & slides on Predicting & Managing Post-Op Pain now available

You can now stream the presentation or review the slides for Dr. Hance Clarke’s webinar on Predicting and Managing Post-op Pain. 

Drawing from his clinical practice and research, as well as his experience leading the Transitional Pain Service program at Toronto General Hospital, Dr. Clarke (Staff Anesthesiologist and Director of the Pain Research Unit, Toronto General Hospital) addressed the following:

  • What is the current research on acute to chronic pain and  best practice approaches for assessment and pain management in the  surgical setting?
  • How do we better treat/prepare/care for the patients that  are coming to us pre-operatively with significant pain issues that  may be associated with their cancer or due to other issues (Is this  another ‘pre-optimization’ opportunity?)
  • How do we identify those patients who go on to develop  chronic pain issues post-operatively? And what can we do to reduce  the likelihood that this will happen?

Webinar: Process Mapping

Whether you are trying to map a patient journey, diagnostic pathway, or other process, process mapping can help you to look for opportunities for improvement by visualising the complete process and identifying points of for improvement. It can capture the reality of a process and identify duplication, variation, and unnecessary steps. It also sparks good ideas and helps a team to know where to start to make improvements that will have the biggest impact for patients and staff. It is a great way of revealing the complete process – rarely does a single healthcare worker know all the processes / people involved in the patient journey.

This webinar, presented on May 20, 2015, focused on developing and analyzing a process map to identify and prioritize opportunities for improvement. We hope that you will take away some new ideas for how to support your work in the ERAS initiative!
