The Centre for Perioperative Care (CPOC) has started work on the UK’s first ever Green Paper on perioperative care.
The Green Paper project is a nine-month programme of consultation and research about how to advance the perioperative care agenda. It aims to draw CPOC’s diverse community of partners together around a shared set of priorities for change and a vision for the future.
The project will draw on a wide evidence base, building on work already happening within CPOC, our partner organisations and across the entire health and care sector. We will also reach out to our community of thousands of health professionals and patients to generate new evidence that will enable us to develop future policy and make the best possible case for change.
The Green Paper can't be delivered without the active participation and help of everyone working to deliver better patient-centred care. If you would like to get involved with this project, then please consider joining the informal ‘sounding board’ of healthcare professionals, patients, and policymakers. The kinds of things CPOC will be looking for your help with include:
- Giving your views as CPOC develop their policy thinking, e.g. by taking surveys, feeding back on draft papers or reports, testing the messaging, and helping plug evidence gaps or prioritise what CPOC explore further.
- Championing the work on social media and to your personal and professional networks.
- Blogging for CPOC to share your experiences, reflecting on new findings, and informing the public about this work.
- Attending workshops or events CPOC may host as part of the consultation work for this project.
