The World Congress of Prehabilitation Medicine preceded this year’s Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM). TopMedTalk had an open table and this podcast contains two of the conversations we recorded in between presentations and live streaming.

We mention two trials:


We hear from, Heather Gill, a vascular surgeon at McGill University and Research Chair for the Canadian Society of vascular surgery, President elect about the wide applicability of prehabilitation balanced against the evidence and Professor Enoch Akowuah, Chair of cardiac surgery at Newcastle University and a consultant cardiac surgeon and at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in the UK.
