Patients have access to evidence-based knowledge, checklists, and skills training to support them from preoperative preparation through postoperative recovery.

Given in advance of surgery, the ACS Surgical Skills Patient Education Program, affords patients the opportunity of repetitive practice and the confidence to actively participate in their pre-and postoperative care.
