    Abstract Background Healthcare cannot achieve net-zero carbon without addressing operating theatres. The aim of this study was to prioritize feasible interventions to reduce the environmental impact of operating theatres. Methods This study adopted a four-phase Delphi consensus co-prioritization methodology. In phase 1, a systematic review of published interventions and global consultation of perioperative healthcare professionals were used to longlist interventions. In phase 2, iterative thematic analysis consolidated comparable interventions into a shortlist. In phase 3, the shortlist was co-prioritized based on patient and clinician views on acceptability, feasibility, and safety. In phase 4, ranked lists of interventions were presented by their relevance to high-income countries and low‚Äďmiddle-income countries. Results In phase 1, 43 interventions were identified, which had low uptake in practice according to 3042 professionals globally. In phase 2, a shortlist of 15 intervention domains was generated. In phase 3, interventions were deemed acceptable for more than 90 per cent of patients except for reducing general anaesthesia (84 per cent) and re-sterilization of ‚Äėsingle-use‚Äô consumables (86 per cent). In phase 4, the top three shortlisted interventions for high-income countries were: introducing recycling; reducing use of anaesthetic gases; and appropriate clinical waste processing. In phase 4, the top three shortlisted interventions for low‚Äďmiddle-income countries were: introducing reusable surgical devices; reducing use of consumables; and reducing the use of general anaesthesia. Conclusion This is a step toward environmentally sustainable operating environments with actionable interventions applicable to both high‚Äď and low‚Äďmiddle‚Äďincome countries

    This study explores the impacts that live-in Foreign Domestic Workers (FDWs) have on familial relations within middle-class and upper-class families. Firstly, it describes how live-in FDWs impacts familial relations based on communication patterns, conflict management, quality time and caregiving duties. Subsequently, it expounds on previous literature done on the topic of FDWs and familial dynamics and reveals insights which will direct this research project. Additionally, this research aims to describe the methodology and sampling strategies employed to achieve the research objectives. Finally, findings will be discussed and from the results obtained, it was conclusive that the impacts of live-in FDWs on familial relations based on the four key dimensions were unique to different families. In comparison, middle-class families are usually more negatively affected than upper-class families. This is due to the live-in FDW’s role in her host family and limitations within the household’s living space.Bachelor of Arts in Sociolog
