Dr Flavia Kessler Borges, Dr Sandra Ofori, and Dr Michael McGillion from McMaster University focus on the 3 areas to improve perioperative care and outcomes through learning from the HIP ATTACK-2, PREVENT, and PVC-RAM 2 and 3 trials. The speakers emphasize the prognostic relevance of myocardial injury in patients presenting with a hip fracture and the potential of accelerated surgery to improve outcomes; the role of perioperative smoking cessation and potential for interventions to address this problem; and the importance of surgical transitions from hospital to home and ways to address the problems of emergency room visits, rehospitalizations, drug errors, pain, and suboptimal medical management for long-term health outcomes. The webinar chaired by Dr Madeleine Verhovsek and Dr Vikas Tandon was recorded at the Chair's Medical Grand Rounds on January 20, 2022.
