ACORN Standards Feedback

We are now 12-months on from the release of the new format of the ACORN Standards for Practice in Perioperative Nursing. We would love to get your feedback on what is working well, and areas for improvement in future iterations of the ACORN Standards.


The release of the New ACORN Standards in 2023 saw the introduction of a "Guidance" section of each Standards for Safe and Quality Care in the Perioperative Environment (SSQCPE) Standards. This section was introduced to provide additional information and context behind the criteria set out in the standard. Please provide your feedback below on whether you feel that this section is valuable to the Standard format.
