Description:
The Elective Surgery Programme has been developed as a collaborative initiative between the HSE QCCD and the Royal College of Surgeon in Ireland. The programme team includes representatives from a wide range of surgical specialities, nursing, anaesthesia and allied health professions. The programme will also involve patient representatives and engage in consultation across a broad range of healthcare providers and agencies. The programme has four components. The first is designed to optimise length of patient stay by increasing the rates of day surgery in accordance with international standards for day surgery and shortening the length of patient stay for selected common elective in-patient surgical procedures .The second is to develop standardised care pathway guidelines to facilitate this journey. The third is an audit programme to monitor outcomes of this process, but, additionally, to audit surgical mortality . And, finally, to introduce a “productive”, team-working, operating theatre programme aimed at improving efficiency, cutting costs and providing better and safer patient care.
