The Center for Perioperative Care (CPOC) is ‘a cross-specialty collaboration dedicated to the promotion, advancement and development of perioperative care for the benefit of patients at all stages of their surgical journey’.
Here we have exclusive reaction and analysis to their publication “Guideline for the Management of Anaemia in the Perioperative Pathway” from Scarlett McNally, Deputy Director for CPOC and honoree, Clinical Professor at Brighton and Sussex medical school and consultant orthopedic surgeon in East Sussex.
This is the first piece of an EBPOM London session on the subject of perioperative anemia which was chaired by Mike Grocott, Professor of Anaesthesia and critical care at the University of Southampton, and Rachel Barlow, National Lead, Enhanced Recovery, Prehabilitation and Optimisation, at Cardiff and Vale health board, Wales.
At the time of this presentation the guidelines had just been published, now you can find them online here: https://www.cpoc.org.uk/sites/cpoc/files/documents/2022-09/1. CPOC_GuidelinefortheManagementofAnaemia_September2022.pdf
