IPP Dr. Adele Springer shared that she is getting back to a work life now that her last child is leaving home.  Her dream is to introduce to Trinidad the science of perioperative medicine for patients preparing for surgery as well as during their post-op care. 
In a nutshell, the surgical team meets with the patient some time before the surgery to assess his/her fitness, risk factors, etc, and then uses this information to apply an agreed protocol to monitor the patient extremely closely afterwards.  See this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BA6ZUsf5jdo&feature=youtu.be for a clear explanation of what's involved.  
IPP Adele also talked about applying a coordinated and holistic approach to pain management, e.g., with the help of yoga, chiropractors, clinical psychologists, diet, etc. This was a very interesting talk that generated numerous questions and discussion.
