As anaesthetists, the pre-anaesthetic assessment forms a vital component of our planning and management of the patient. Appropriate pre-, intra- and post-procedural care can be based on the knowledge detailed in the assessment process. Risks can be determined, appropriate discussions can be made with all stakeholders (surgeons, physicians, anaesthetists, the patient), care plans determined, and consent obtained. A structured approach to assessment utilising screening tools better enables the identification of patients with risk, and aim to better manage those patients through the perioperative period.
In this webinar, we will look at at screening as part of our pre-anaesthesia assessment, assigning risk to our findings, and consider risk management as part of our perioperative care of the patient. We will also review some literature for evidence of impact on patient outcomes.
1. Understand the role of Pre-Anaesthetic Assessment in patient care
2. Evaluate the Pre-Anaesthetic Assessment for meaningful data to facilitate patient care
3. Review the literature for evidence of improvement to patient outcomes
