Changing Care to Improve Surgical Outcomes
Dr. Paul Wischmeyer, of the Duke Clinical Research Institute, welcomes distinguished scientists and clinicians from across the U.S to discuss the role of nutrition in surgery to improve patient outcomes. The podcast series is supported through a medical education grant from Abbott Nutrition.
Podcast 1: The Role of Nutrition in “Strong for Surgery”
Host Paul Wischmeyer, MD, is joined by Thomas Varghese, MD, section head of General Thoracic Surgery at the University of Utah, to discuss the role of nutrition in the American College of Surgeons’ Strong for Surgery initiative. They discuss the established evidence on the prevalence of malnutrition in candidates for surgery and how it can affect outcomes, as well as how to detect malnutrition and the barriers to implementing systemic change in clinics and hospitals.
Time: 27 minutes
Podcast 2: The Role of the Dietitian in Perioperative Nutrition Screening and Care
Screening for malnutrition and preparing patients for the stress of surgery is a team effort for any health system. Duke School of Medicine dietitian Kathryn Starr, PhD, joins Paul Wischmeyer, MD, in this episode to share how she approaches assessment and treatment, as well as her hope that registered dietitians will become a more common component of patient care teams.
Time: 21 minutes
Podcast 3: Nutrition in Surgery- The Clinician’s Perspective
Nutritional interventions are generally low cost, low risk, and high impact. But how do clinicians decide what they give and when? Bob Martindale, MD, PhD, is chief of Gastrointestinal and General Surgery at Oregon Health & Science University. In this episode, Paul Wischmeyer gets Martindale’s perspective on the history of these interventions, recent innovation in assessment tools, and takeaways from the latest research literature.
Time: 27 minutes
Podcast 4: Perioperative Nutrition Optimization Clinics: The Future of Perioperative Care
There are many ways to tackle malnutrition and better prepare patients for surgery. In this episode, Solomon Aronson, MD, MBA, and Abbey Whittington, PA-C, join Paul Wischmeyer to discuss what motivated them to create the Perioperative Enhancement Team (POET) at Duke University Hospital.
