Our next project will look at peri-operative smoking practice in the region. 

The project was successfully pitched by ST3 trainee Dr Swati Gupta from a competitive field, at the STAR Annual Congress in June 2019. ​

We aim to determine: 

  • Current practice in pre-operative smoking cessation advice in the region

  • Anaesthetists current practices and beliefs

We aim to: 

  • Add evidence to ongoing issues of whether smoking cessation close to surgery may have detrimental effects on PPCs

This project is currently in the planning stage. We aim to roll out more information in the towards Autumn / Winter 2019. Look for updates here to find out how to get involved, or talk to your Local Lead for more info!
