Greener Operations: Sustainable Peri-Operative Practice

The Greener Operations: Sustainable Peri-Operative Practice PSP worked with patients, carers, healthcare professionals and the broader public to identify uncertainties about environmentally sustainable practice within peri-operative care.

Peri-operative practice is defined as care provided from or in the secondary care setting to patients who may benefit from surgical management. For full details of the PSP scope, please see the protocol.

The results of the PSP establish the priorities for research in environmentally sustainable operating theatre practice, providing a focus for future research efforts.

The Greener Operations PSP Top 10 was published in June 2022.
