Peri-operative Smoking Cessation
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 aimed to determine:
Current practice in pre-operative smoking cessation advice in the region
Anaesthetists current practices and beliefs
We aimed to:
Add evidence to ongoing issues of whether smoking cessation close to surgery may have detrimental effects on PPCs
We look forward to announcing the results presently
