NZ developing population-specific, precision-driven surgery risk calculator
A web-based risk calculator that uses a large data set solely from New Zealand's unique population is being launched next year, aimed at making more accurate, better-informed decisions about the risks and benefits of surgery.
Developed by Auckland City Hospital anaesthetist Doug Campbell and funded by the $38 million Precision Driven Health (PDH) initiative, the calculator will be freely available but is designed to be used by patients in consultation with their doctor.
