The mission of POP is to engage patients in optimizing their health before an operation so that they can face the physical and psychological challenges of surgery.
POP’s vision is:
- To establish cutting-edge pre- and post-operative care programs - staffed with a highly trained, interdisciplinary team of health practitioners - for high risk patients undergoing surgery;
- To develop - through research and education - patient-centered therapeutic strategies and multidisciplinary interventions;
- To empower patients, as well as their caregivers, to take an active role in ensuring the best possible recovery after surgery.
