JPP is the official journal of the AfPP. It promotes perioperative practice through publishing literature reviews, research-based articles, topical discussions, advice on clinical issues, current news items and product information. The journal also encourages a sense of community among perioperative practitioners by providing a forum for debate.  Members and non-members can use our search facility. You can search by the article's title, a subject keyword or by author.
