COVID-19 and Perioperative Care

Many of the concepts of Perioperative Care are applicable to COVID-19. CPOC advises the public to prepare for the possibility of contracting the virus in the same way that you would prepare for major surgery.

The launch of the Centre for Perioperative Care marks an important milestone. Working collaboratively, we have an opportunity to improve the lives of patients and populations, across the life-course, for generations to come.
