Perioperative Medicine aims to improve the short-term safety and long-term effectiveness of surgical treatments by the delivery of multi-specialty medical care before, during, and after surgery. Anaesthesia is central to the delivery of this safe and effective perioperative care and Perioperative Medicine is a strategy to work with other healthcare professionals to promote this philosophy.

Patients are at the centre of Perioperative Medicine and should be empowered to fully participate in their own healthcare choices, making well-informed decisions about all aspects of their care.
