NICE guidance on Perioperative care in adults

Published: 19/08/2020

Today NICE have published guideline NG180 on Perioperative care in adults.

The Faculty is pleased there has been a NICE review of perioperative care in adults, including pain management, and there is much in the document to commend.

It does need to be noted that, as stated by the NICE committee, they did not cover the entire perioperative pathway in this guidance and the scope focuses on areas of uncertainty or variation in practice.
