  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The proposed review will address the following questions: 

What impact does consolidating surgical services through an "acute care surgery" model have on patients, staff, and resources?

  • What are the impacts of each of four (or more) variants of the acute care surgery model?

  • What effects, if any, are consistently found across different variants of the model?
