"The father of prehabilitation" reflects on where the discipline is now and where it used to be, from new kid on the block to being touted now as the word of the moment. How has this change come about? Is it the focus value based care? Is it the fact we're becoming more patient focused?

Is it fair to say this is an evidence led focus brought about by more information and understanding regarding long term patient outcomes?

Further discussion includes frailty, engaging patients in their prehabilitation and educating patients. This talk gives a wealth of powerful practical techniques which will help you to continue to provide the sort of high quality healthcare your patients and institutions expect.

This piece gives you a fantastic overview alongside some interesting insights and suggestions as to what the future might hold and where things can be improved.

Presented by Franco Carli, Professor of Anesthesia at McGill University and Associate Professor in the School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition at McGill University, Staff anesthesiologist at the McGill University Health Centre.
