About the PRN

The ACCP Perioperative Care Practice and Research Network strives to address common concerns associated with pre-, inter-, and post-operative phases of care as they relate to patient specific parameters (age, gender, and co-morbid conditions) and medical severity. The scope of this network includes addressing underlying disease processes and progression, successfully managing sedation and pain, identifying alterations in drug disposition (administration, absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion), and utilizing evidence based medicine to evaluate and minimize surgical complications. The goal of this network is to incorporate interdisciplinary collaboration through academia, research, and practice development while also ensuring safe and effective perioperative management of all patient populations.
