Anaesthesia and Perioperative Care Priority Setting animation

The NIAA has released a short animation describing the process and outcomes of the Anaesthesia and Perioperative Care Priority Setting Partnership (PSP), a collaboration with the James Lind Alliance and numerous patient and specialty association organisations.

The PSP asked patients, the public and clinical professionals to identify the most important directions for new research in anaesthesia and perioperative care.


The full list of top ten priorities for new research and further information on the PSP process can be found here.

The 'professional' stakeholder organisations included the two main anaesthetic professional organisations (RCoA and AAGBI), anaesthetic specialist societies, as well as the Royal College of Surgeons (Eng) and various organisations representing other healthcare professionals involved in perioperative care delivery. Between them these professional organisations represent over 40,000 members.

The 'patient, carer and public' stakeholder organisations represented a diverse range of patients with experience of anaesthesia and perioperative care. The total active membership of the affiliated organisations was estimated at well over 50,000; the overall 'patient reach' of the partner organisations is likely to number several million.
