The Association for Perioperative Practice

The Association for Perioperative Practice, AfPP, is the UK’s leading membership organisation dedicated to theatre practitioners. We are committed to improving patient care and safety by developing and promoting the leading standards for perioperative practice.

Standards and Recommendations for Safe Perioperative Practice
The AfPP Standards and Recommendations has been the go-to textbook for theatre practitioners for many years. Written by practitioners for practitioners, this is the essential reference tool for all theatre departments. The fifth edition of AfPP’s benchmark publication has been revised and updated for 2022, providing comprehensive guidance on evidence-based best practice and minimising risk in and around the operating theatre.
