Optimal Perioperative Management of the Geriatric Patient – Best Practice Guideline

The American College of Surgeons released an updated edition of their best practice guidelines for perioperative care of geriatric patients in early 2016.  The guideline was created in collaboration by the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program and the American Geriatrics Society’s Geriatrics-for-Specialists Initiative.
The new guideline addressed the perioperative care of all surgical patients 65-years-old and older. Included in the guideline are specific recommendations regarding care transitions from acute care facilities to personal residences or long-term care facilities post-surgery.
