Description

The service will be reviewed and redesigned to ensure patients are case managed prior to surgery. The drive is to improve the work-up of patients for elective work, reduce cancellations, and better utilise anaesthetist consultant resources. The project will include;

  • a new pathway for the preadmission process to ensure the service is streamlined. 
  • strengthening case management of patients prior to surgery
  • expanding roles within the existing workforce.
  • enhancing skill mix within the workforce, providing training and education on criteria for peri operative patients.
  • provide patient focused booking (opportunity to be seen on day of FSA).

Target population: Elective Surgery Patients in the Southland Region.
