Enhanced Recovery After Surgery: Avoiding Complications, Avoiding Opiates 2018
Course Director: Tonia M. Young-Fadok, MD,MS, FACS, FASCRS
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a multidisciplinary, multi-modal approach to perioperative care. The best of evidence-based medicine is employed to optimize the patient’s post-operative course promoting early recovery while post-op complications and costs are reduced. We also focus on multi-modality pain management which allows for reduction in post-operative opioid use. This proactive approach is comprised of data-driven, proven interventions: “Post-op recovery starts in pre-op.”
- Starting with clearly-defined preoperative preparation that involves the spectrum of health care team members, including the patient.
- Intraoperative approaches that have the entire scope of the patient’s care in mind including postoperative recovery – multimodality pain control, pre-emption of nausea, and fluid management to minimize postop ileus.
- Postoperative order sets and team care that optimize patient recovery, convey the experience of accumulated knowledge and minimize complications and hospital stay.
We will provide evidence-based best practices from foremost international leaders. Discussion panels and breakout sessions will allow attendees to “pick the brains” of teams who have successfully improved their patients’ outcomes and then return to their institutions with a plan. Consider bringing other members of our multi-disciplinary team to facilitate implementation at your institution.
In collaboration with: ERAS Society
This course is designed for Allied Health Professionals, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians, Nurses, Anesthesiologists, CRNA's and Dieticians. Enhanced recovery is a team sport. It is exceedingly difficult to institute new practices without a team. Consider attending as a real team: surgeon (from any abdominal specialty – general, colorectal, GYN, urology, hepatobiliary), anesthesiologist, nurse caring for patient, and administrator. Any health care professional involved in the patient’s perioperative course will gain new perspective and incentive to do better from this course.
