Case Studies in Perioperative Medicine
Edited by Dr Anas Zyada and Professor David Walker
Case Studies in Perioperative Medicine is an online educational resource established by leading practitioners at UCL’s Centre for Perioperative Medicine. It explores clinically relevant issues, offers authoritative guidance and provides a wide variety of learning opportunities for both students and practising clinicians in perioperative medicine, by experts and practitioners from all over the world.
Case Studies in Perioperative Medicine will be presented on our innovative, open access BOOC (Books as Open Online Content) platform. Readers can filter material by three themes, ‘Contemplating Surgery’, ‘Undergoing Surgery’ and ‘Recovering from Surgery’. New content will be added over time making this an evolving and dynamic publication. This educational resource will contribute to maintaining and enhancing readers’ knowledge, skills and attitudes across many areas of their practice in perioperative medicine.
Each succinct, peer-reviewed, clinical case study is written in a comprehensible and engaging style and focuses on a single question, prefaced with a brief case history, providing a clinical context to the question being answered. Included within the case studies will be an opportunity for readers to interact with links, images, infographics and short videos, to improve knowledge retention and reader understanding.
