Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Evidence in perioperative medicine is published in a wide variety of journals, given the multidisciplinary nature of its practice which spans medicine and its subspecialties, as well as surgery and anesthesiology. It can be difficult to identify new and important evidence, as perioperative practice continues to evolve in multiple areas such as medication management, anticoagulation and cardiac risk stratification, among others. New, high-quality evidence is published each year, and must be placed into the context of not only existing literature, but also practical real-world patient care. We sought to systematically identify, critically evaluate and concisely summarize the practice implications of 10 articles published in 2015 for the practicing perioperative clinician.
