Economic Analysis of Lapco

The economic analysis of the Lapco programme has been investigated by the Dr Melody Ni of the Education Team at Imperial College who through the analysis is able to identify that  a cost saving of £18,237,904 has been made through the benefits obtained through the programme. The study looks at the difference between Lapco trainees under trainer supervision with their comparative figures on length of stay and complications, when compared as a cohort against self taught surgeons.

The following presentation was made by Dr Melody Ni at the National Intelligence Cancer Network (NCIN) at the "Improving Cancer Outcomes Conference" in June 2012. For further information contact:
