Research Focus

Our multidisciplinary surgical outcomes research group (surgery, anaesthesiology, clinical epidemiology, exercise physiology, nutrition and psychology) focuses on improving patient recovery and other outcomes of abdominal surgery. We perform clinical trials examining the effectiveness of interventions including prehabilitation, exercise, nutrition, minimally invasive surgery, enhanced recovery pathways and mobile applications on improving recovery after abdominal surgery. We also contribute to safer surgery through the development of educational curricula, simulation and assessment tools, focused specifically on image-based surgical techniques.
