Abstract This literature review provides an overview of ten studies which assessed the patient's general recovery after discharge from hospital following elective surgery and anaesthesia. Ten multi-dimensional tools were identified and these included six common domain assessments: pain, physiological function, activities of daily living (ADL), emotions, nausea/vomiting and nutrition/elimination. Most of the tools assessed the recovery process by using patient-subjective reported outcomes on visual analogue (VAS) or pre-graded scales.
