  • improve public health and wellbeing by identifying causes and themes of preventable harm in perioperative care across the Victorian health sector
  • disseminate relevant information and practical strategies to improve care before, during and after surgery and interventional procedures.

The principal function of the council is to identify and report on issues relating to perioperative care in Victoria, and to make recommendations to help health services and medical practitioners improve clinical practice and systems of care.

There are currently two VPCC member vacancies:
