Pre-anaesthetic Evaluation Framework

Pre-operative assessment is an important component of the peri-operative management of elective surgery patients and ideally should occur following referral for surgery.

The SWAPNet, Pre-Anaesthetic Evaluation Framework (sponsored by Clinical Excellence Queensland) aims to deliver safe, high quality healthcare and improve the efficiency of service delivery and patient outcomes through the utilisation of a suite of resources to support the appropriate and effective triage and assessment of patients undergoing procedures requiring anaesthetic.

Hospital attendance is minimised and optimal patients outcomes are maintained by streamlining processes and reducing duplication, investigation, assessment, unplanned cancellations and unexpected post-operative complications.
