Show Notes

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?

On-Field Management of Sports Injuries, with special guests Bradley Nelson and Moin Khan

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guests and sports medicine experts Bradley Nelson (Head of Athletic Medicine at the University of Minnesota) and Moin Khan (Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at McMaster University) in an informative discussion on the on-field management of sports injuries. What kind of preparation is ideal for those interested in pursuing a career that involves sports medicine coverage? What can be learned from mentors, including faculty and senior athletic trainers? What types of injuries and medical issues should one should expect to see? What pre-game preparation is needed in terms of communicating and interacting with trainers and EMS, reviewing the emergency action plan, and becoming familiar with the equipment, supports, and facilities that will available during a game? What risks, liabilities, and special considerations are potential areas of concern when on the sidelines, particularly when covering high school games involving minors? What options are available if you are the only person providing coverage?
