We cordially invite all collaborators and regional leads to the Student Audit and Research in Surgery (STARSurg) launch of our new project RECON (REspiratory COmplications after AbdomiNal) and Research Skills Workshop at the Royal College of Surgeons, England, 09:00-17:15, Monday 14th January, 2019.
STARSurg has now delivered five national audits of surgical and perioperative practice: STARSurg-1, Determining Surgical Complications in the Overweight (DISCOVER), Outcomes after kidney injury in surgery (OAKS)-1, OAKS-2, and Ileus Management International (IMAGINE). To date, we have engaged 5,400 collaborators in our projects from over 170 centres in the UK and Ireland, with data being collected on more than 20,000 patients. This has resulted in over 80 presentations (at regional, national, and international conferences) and 11 peer-reviewed papers published within high impact journals, including the British Journal of Surgery (BJS), British Journal of Anaesthesia, and Anaesthesia (see www.starsurg.org).
The January meeting will be split into two parts:
(i) A half day interactive STARSurg Research Skills Course, delivered by an expert faculty. Certificates of completion will be provided to all delegates.
(ii) A formal protocol launch for RECON, with an afternoon of plenaries from world-leading academic surgeons and peri-operative physicians.
