Sample text

The optimisation phase before surgery has been termed ‘prehabilitation’ [4]. The GP needs to be involved and early on should manage the patient’s expectations, describe the whole process to the patient and their family, and discuss the role the patient should play in it. At this point there should be a discussion of options with the patient, including nonoperative management. Assessment of fitness for surgery should begin at this time if possible; starting the process in the GP’s surgery keeps patient care closer to home, as well as improving the efficiency of the hospital processes.

Enhanced recovery programmes have two principle aims: to improve the quality of patient care in order to facilitate rapid recovery after major surgery, and to decrease the length of stay with benefit not only to the patient, but also to the hospital system through decreasing bed occupancy and therefore cost. Decreased length of stay in turn decreases the risk of complications such as venous thrombo-embolism and hospital acquired infections. These aims are achieved by a programme of care that is designed to minimise the patient’s physiological stress response to surgery.

An example of a traffic light assessment triage system used by South Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is given in the NHS ‘Delivering Enhanced Recovery’ document [4]. Based on defined selection criteria, the patient will see either a nurse or both a nurse and an anaesthetist. A patient with significant comorbidities will be assigned to an anaesthetist and to receive cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX). If available, CPX assessment has been shown to be a better discriminator than either a shuttle walk test or an activity questionnaire in the identification of high-risk and low-risk patients.
