Category

Summary
The document is addressed to those writing and implementing local perioperative care policies and to medical and nursing educators. Managers have a responsibility to ensure that guidelines based on these recommendations are put in place. The guidelines aim to cover all stages of the patient pathway but are not designed to be read from cover to cover. Recommendations for each stage are intended to stand alone so that individual healthcare professionals can identify their role in the process.
