Sustainability in surgery

Please see the new ‘Green Surgery report 2023’. CPOC and 4 of our board members are named as contributors. Good perioperative care means fewer complications, fewer unwarranted operations, more efficient pathways and more operations as day surgery. All these aspects reduce waste. The ‘Green Surgery checklist’ is also on this link – showing how to start operating more sustainably and a compendium of over 100 references.
