“The Center for Perioperative Care (CPOC) was set up as a cross organisational collaboration with the patients at the heart of it; focusing on improving care ‘from the moment of contemplation of surgery, through the perioperative period, to recovery’ and really hoping to change the emphasis from patients being ‘surgical patients’ to patients 'being in the perioperative pathway’.”

This piece was originally presented as a talk at the Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM) World Congress; “What work has The Center for Perioperative Care (CPOC) been doing?”.
