Care of surgical patients both pre- and post-operation is extremely important and significantly impacts outcomes. Through our neurosurgical outcomes study at Mulago Hospital, we uncovered areas in need of further evaluation to better understand our outcome findings. Care of surgical patients was identified as the area in need of further investigation. This study seeks to understand if utilizing a standardized documentation and clinical practice guidelines for care of patients both pre and post operation impacts patient outcomes. We are partnering with Stanford University School of Medicine on this study.
