Improving outcomes for the shoulder & elbow | 22 November 2023


“Expert to Expert”

This meeting has been running annually since 2015 in partnership with the British Elbow & Shoulder Society (BESS). It serves as a forum for surgeons and AHP’s who are involved in shoulder and elbow practice to meet and discuss different aspects of their practice.

Shoulder and Elbow surgery continues to evolve, with newer innovations and use of technology. Computerised preplanning software, patient specific jigs and implants and navigation for shoulder arthroplasty continue to be adopted. At this year’s meeting we look at various technological solutions for shoulder arthroplasty.

As pressures on Health service continue to increase, with focus on improving efficiency, we will discuss Enhanced recovery and daycase shoulder arthroplasty.

One of the measures to ease pressure on secondary care is the use of FCPs and we look at the role of FCPs.

We also have a session on professionalism, training and feedback.
