Patients experience speedier recovery after major operations if we speak with one another. This according to Olle Ljungqvist, Professor of Surgery at Örebro University, in his recent TEDx Talk.
Olle Ljungqvist's research concerns surgical stress and how healthcare can work to help patients recover in the best possible way after a major operation.
He heads up a major international project in the subject, Enhanced Recovery After Surgery, ERAS.
