Coming next month in JACS and online now: Enhancing the American College of Surgeons NSQIP Surgical Risk Calculator to predict geriatric outcomes

Melissa A. Hornor, MD, MS; Meixi Ma, MD, MS; Lynn Zhou, PhD; and colleagues in the January issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons found that the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®) Surgical Risk Calculator (SRC) can predict four unique outcomes germane to geriatric surgical patients, with improvement of predictive capability after accounting for geriatric risk factors. Augmentation of ACS NSQIP SRC may enhance shared decision making to improve the quality of surgical care in older adults.
