18 Jan Presentation

The aim of the meeting is to bring together the regional Emergency Laparotomy Surgical, Anaesthetic and Audit leads to discuss how we can deliver a regional pathway and to facilitate information sharing amongst all the Trusts in the North East and North Cumbria (NENC) region.  The project aims to focus on the development of a regional laparotomy pathway for the NENC with the aim of improving outcomes. This pathway will include evidence-based interventions similar to the ELpQuip study and aims to standardise care and improve outcomes in this important group of patients.
