The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCOA) has announced the publication of Guidelines for the Provision of Anaesthesia Services (GPAS) for the Perioperative Care of Elective and Urgent Care Patients.
The new GPAS chapter replaces the following:
- Guidelines for the Provision of Anaesthesia Services for Preoperative Assessment and Preparation
- Guidelines for the Provision of Anaesthesia Services for Intraoperative Care
- Guidelines for the Provision of Postoperative Care.
All chapters have been developed using the NICE-accredited development process.
PIF is sharing the new guidelines, which can be found by clicking below, as we believe they may be useful to members creating health information on surgery.
