Extract

During deliberations in 1997, the Committee on Health and Science Policy of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) concluded that there was a need to identify and discuss the multitude of factors that affect patient comfort and the risk of morbidity and mortality in the perioperative period. Responding to this recommendation, a Conference on Perioperative Evaluation and Management was convened at ACCP headquarters in Northbrook, IL, on May 16 and 17, 1998. Clinical scholars and investigators were invited to participate in this workshop and each was asked to address a single topic affecting patient risk and comfort in the perioperative period. The members of the Committee on Health and Science Policy were asked to chair break-out sessions following the presentations and to summarize the thrust of each group of talks. While we hoped to arrive at some recommendations based on evidence or consensus, the main aim was to identify areas that would be important for further investigation. Those recommendations are included in the summaries.
