Major advances in intraoperative care (i.e., surgical techniques, anesthesia, and monitoring) have occurred throughout the last 100 years; however, postoperative care has lagged behind. As a result, too many patients suffer major complications and require re-hospitalization or die after surgery. Canada has the entrepreneurial talent to transform this major global problem and in the process create health, social, and economic benefits for Canadians.

New monitoring and virtual support strategies are needed on surgical floors and in the home setting if postoperative care is to achieve the similar improvements of intraoperative care. Our work suggests that innovative digital health technologies such as non-invasive, patient-friendly monitors that can continuously measure multiple biosigns have the potential to revolutionize postoperative care. This presentation will discuss how the research program of the Anesthesiology, Perioperative Medicine, and Surgical Research Group at the Population Health Research Institute is focused on cutting in half perioperative mortality, major complications, and hospital readmissions in the coming decade.

Dr. P. J. Devereaux obtained his MD and his PhD in Clinical Epidemiology from McMaster University and completed residencies in internal medicine and in cardiology. He is the Director of the Division of Cardiology at McMaster University and the Scientific Leader of the Anesthesiology, Perioperative Medicine, and Surgical Research Group at the Population Health Research Institute. Dr. Devereaux is a full Professor and University Scholar in the Departments of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact and Medicine at McMaster University. He is supported by a Tier 1 Canadian Research Chair in Perioperative Medicine and holds the Yusuf Chair in Cardiology at McMaster University.
