A unique and innovative collaborative model of clinical and translational research led by Surgeon-Anesthesiologist teams designed to improve quality of perioperative care, realize cost savings, and foster education of the members of Surgery and Anesthesia Departments.
The Center for Perioperative Research (C.P.R.) is an unprecedented model of Surgery-Anesthesia interdepartmental research collaboration designed to foster shared responsibility for patient care through research. It’s about bringing people together to achieve a common goal.
The Center for Perioperative Research is based in the Departments of Surgery and Anesthesiology at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, but serves the entire hospital organization. We strive to collaborate both internally and externally with a variety of stakeholders, including the industry, foundations, hospital administration, clinicians from anesthesiology, surgery and other specialties, information systems administrators, biomedical engineers, pharmacists, clinical researchers and statisticians, educators, Harvard Medical School and other national and international universities.
