Innovation (with special guest Ed Harvey)

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Ed Harvey (tenured professor at McGill University and Past-President of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association) in a lively discussion on the topic of innovation in the field of orthopaedic surgery. The discussion touches on a number of related questions: Invention is often confused with innovation. What is the difference?  What is the phenotype of a surgeon-innovator, and how does such an individual differ from a surgeon-scientist or surgeon-educator? What are the necessary skills and qualities of the surgeon-innovator? How can we identify individuals with these skills, and how can we motivate individuals to develop them? Are people born with these skills, and can these skills be taught?  When is the right time to innovate? Are you ever too young or too old to innovate? How does the concept of value relate to the concept of innovation? What are the roles of the “3 Ps” (Patient, Physician, and Payor) in achieving commercialization? How does a surgeon-innovator define “success”?  Why is it important to have an efficient and effective team during the commercialization process? How does the team change over time? What kind of expertise is needed to navigate the regulatory issues related to innovation? What are investors and venture capitalists (VCs) ultimately looking for when evaluating an invention?  OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected] Links: Schiffman CJ, Prabhakar P, ...

Perioperative and Transitional Care

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest P.J. Devereaux, Director of the Division of Perioperative Care at McMaster University, in an informative discussion on the future of perioperative and transitional care. With much of the world still dealing with a third wave of the Covid pandemic, and with hospital access continuing to be a challenge because of high rates of ER visits and hospital readmissions, how can we optimize the safety and care of patients both intraoperatively and postoperatively?   How has Covid helped us to rethink how we might improve care for our patients in the future? How can we most effectively monitor patients after they leave the orthopaedic surgical suite?  What measures can we take to send patients home both sooner and safer? What are the roles of technology, personnel, data monitoring, and established protocols in ensuring timely and improved patient care after discharge?  What are the cost considerations associated with technology and technology support? How do these costs compare with those of ER visits and rehospitalizations?  How might the development of a new discipline of perioperative and transitional care help to save lives, provide better patient experiences, improve outcomes, and avoid overloading our ERs and hospitals?    OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected]   Links:   Prada C, Chang Y, Poolman R, Johal H, Bhandari M.
