Day surgery: making it happen
AbstractAn understanding of the scope of day surgery is of critical importance for health policy-makers. This policy brief examines how day surgery can respond both to the policy needs of hospital administrators and to the surgical care needs of specific patients. It reviews the barriers that some countries are experiencing in day-surgery development and explores what needs to be put in place so that day surgery can achieve its full potential.
