Anaesthesia is the official journal of the Association of Anaesthetists with comprehensive coverage of publications in anaesthesia, ICU and pain. This piece gets into the detail of their hugely popular perioperative care supplement, a collaboration with BJS (formerly the British Journal of Surgery). Surgeons and Anaesthetists around the world are engaging in the debate as a result with thousands of tweets about the subject, after publication only days before the 2020 Winter Scientific Meeting.

Further discussion covers prehabilitation, which aspects are backed up by evidence? What are the big trials we should be looking towards?
