Date & Time



The Perioperative Learning Health Network (LHN) is pleased to invite you to our webinar series on Best Care Pathways for Planned Surgery. In this webinar, we'll discuss how evidence based research supports best care and surgery may not always be the best option. We'll identify alternative or adjunct therapies available in hand therapy, including hand therapy and strategies to manage pelvic pain. 

  • Professor David Watters - SCV Perioperative Director; Alfred Deakin Professor, Barwon Health; Deakin University
  • Professor Sonia Grover - Director, Department of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology, Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne
  • Dr Jill Tomlinson - Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgeon
  • Mrs Sally Fraser - SCV consumer representative

Why should I attend?

You'll learn about Best Care and indications for patients with conditions that may benefit from surgery to decide if surgery is the best option, and understand the role of alternative and adjunctive therapy while a patient is on the waitlist for surgery.
