Promoting innovation and evaluation in modern surgery and other invasive technologies including implants is one of the main challenges in healthcare. IDEAL is a development of Evidence Based Medicine approach designed to provide practical solutions to the real problems of surgery, devices and other complex therapies where randomised trials are often problematic.

The second IDEAL international conference of over one hundred participants focussed on the hottest topics in surgical/interventional care in various clinical areas and celebrated the continuing work of the IDEAL Collaboration. The conference provided real-world context and a wide variety of perspectives from surgeons, methodologists, professional societies, industry, regulators, ethicists, and payers. Plenary lectures were intermixed with parallel educational sessions and discussion opportunities for surgeons and scientists.
