Our Mission


Perspectives is committed to providing timely and relevant information on postoperative recovery strategies. Our articles focus on the continuum of care from operating room to recovery room, ward, or home. Perspectives strives to provide pertinent, pragmatic information, continuing education, and guidelines to maximize nurses’ ability to enhance patient outcomes and minimize secondary (iatrogenic) problems. Our articles are suggested by members of our Advisory Board and authored by nurses and respiratory therapists, who have in-depth knowledge and experience in a broad range of clinical specialties, and are reviewed by our editorial board. We welcome opinions and suggestions from our readers.


Each issue of Perspectives contains 2.0 free CE or CRCE credits which are provided free of charge to our readers through an educational grant provided by Dale Medical. Readers are free to download and read any of our current articles. They may go online to take the post-test. Upon successful completion of the post-test they may print out their certificate immediately. Those who do not have access to online services may mail in their post-tests and their certificate will be mailed to them within 4-6 weeks.
