The Anaesthetics, Peri-Operative Medicine & Pain Specialty Group can play an important role in delivering high quality research in areas of anaesthesia, peri-operative medicine and acute and chronic pain management.This would involve collaboration with other Specialty Groups, particularly Critical Care, Surgery and Musculoskeletal.
The group could play a leading role where anaesthetists were directly involved in patient recruitment, eg at the time of peri-operative assessment and management or pain clinics. Studies that are associated with post-operative management or pain management could be co-adopted under this specialty group.
