What should we tell patients preoperatively?
And, how should we manage their intraoperative care?
Royal Palms Resort and Spa, Phoenix, AZ
The APSF believes that increased awareness and understanding of risk factors associated with postoperative visual loss (POVL) is a timely patient safety topic. The goals of this 1-day multidisciplinary conference are to assure that current management reflects evolving information and understanding of “best practices” for patients at risk for POVL. Specific questions that will be addressed include:
- Shared decision making (patient, surgeon, anesthesia professional)
- Who is “at risk”
- Informed consent (timing of and by whom?
- How is anesthetic and surgical management influenced?
