Research Interest

Topic: Last Minute Cancellation Of Elective Ophthalmic Surgeries At The Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Nigeria.

Description: Introduction:-Ophthalmic surgical procedures are often targeted at offering definitive treatment aimed mainly at restoration of vision, improved functional and cosmetic appearance of presenting patients as well as curative treatment.Best practice demandsoptimal pre-operative health status of the patient to minimize intra and post- operative complications.However, these goals may be obviated by unfavourable intervening last minute conditions leading to cancellation of elective surgeries.This study therefore aims at identifying and providing knowledge on the causes of last-minute cancellations of elective ophthalmic surgeries and suggest appropriate measures to improve surgical services delivery at the ophthalmic unit.Methodology:- All patients presenting for elective ophthalmic surgery during the study period will be included in this study. Statistical analysis would be done using SPSS. Results will be analysed based on the various causative categories of last - minute cancellation such as patient- related, anaesthetist - related, surgeon- related and hospital- related. Conclusion and recommendations will highlight key findings with recommendations directed at minimizing last- minute cancellation of elective ophthalmic surgeries
