The intent of the Surgical Risk Reduction Toolkit is to provide physicians with strategies to mitigate risk factors that have been demonstrated to contribute to complications. This toolkit includes:
- A full review of major surgical risk factors
- A temporal approach to addressing risk factors – preoperative, intra-operative, postoperative
- Multilayered content stating general information and delving into deeper detail with guides to help reduce risk
This guide will have a positive effect on orthopaedic practice, patients’ preoperative and overall health, reduce complication rates and help surgeons ensure the best possible outcomes.
Preoperative Risk Factors
Optimize your patients’ preoperative risk factors to reduce postoperative complications and improve outcomes.
Postoperative Risk Factors
Address critical postoperative risk factors (e.g., blood mgmt.) and prepare patients for recovery and discharge.
