Breast Surgery as Day Surgery

Date: 7 September 2021

Virtual, Online

A wide range of breast procedures can be delivered safely as a day case. When the Department of Health recommended prioritising day case breast surgery in 2007, emphasis was placed on non-oncoplastic procedures. However, innovation by surgical teams since, has successfully applied a day surgery ‘mind-set’ to the management of a growing number of oncoplastic procedures, which can release valuable inpatient resource for women who require postoperative monitoring following complex reconstructive surgeries. Despite these benefits, wide variation in day surgery performance persists nationally, usually, as a result of health professional and nursing misperceptions.

Attendance at this conference, which has been produced by the British Association of Day Surgery, will enable delegates to develop a day case management pathway for breast surgery and potential to improve trust management of breast surgical demand and capacity. The basic elements of a day surgery pathway will be presented including the evaluation of the quality of care provided. Specific details of multi-disciplinary care specific to breast surgery management will be presented by acknowledged experts in the field from a variety of backgrounds, reflecting the importance of the multi-disciplinary team in successful delivery of day surgery care for these patients.

ICIS Masterclass in Prostate Cancer *2nd edition

Date: 4 November 2021

Online one-day course

Learning objectives:

To understand the prostate patient’s journey from suspected cancer to the advanced disease state using the framework of definable clinical states.

To know in detail the pathologic states, problems of categorisation and clinical needs of patients in each clinical state in the prostate cancer pathway.

To understand how imaging can help meet clinical priorities and so promote the personalisation of care in the advancing prostate cancer pathway.

To show how next generation prostate imaging (multiparametric MRI & MR-directed biopsies) and whole body assessments (whole body MRI & PET/CT) with clinical biomarkers, create opportunities to support and refine management pathways of patients.

Electrical requirements for the electrical installation of medical radiological equipment

 

The course will consider the radiological aspects of the 2017 DH guidance “HTM06-01 Electrical services supply and distribution”. The new guidance has been re-structured and is more clearly split into two major policies – business risk and patient risk.  The requirements of this document need to be understood when a new radiology room is purchased especially that from now on, electrical installations compliance management will now be measured under the NHS Performance Assessment Model (PAM).

The course is for experienced project managers, medical and x-ray engineers and focuses on the relevant points for medical radiological installations.  There is a summary session at the beginning of the course that other healthcare staff may wish to attend in order to attain a brief overview of the new document.  This summary session would be aimed at radiographers and medical physics experts who are involved with medical radiological equipment purchasing and commissioning, and will explain the new policies and gives reference to the relevant sections of the guidance.

This short course is intended to be run at the customer’s site at their convenience.
