Mayo Clinic 4th Annual Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Course 2019

Phoenix, AZ US
February 22, 2019 to February 23, 2019

In collaboration with:

Course Director: Tonia M. Young-Fadok, MD, MS, FACS, FASCRS, President ERAS USA 

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a multidisciplinary, multi-modal approach to perioperative care. Evidence-based medicine is employed to optimize the patient’s pre-, intra-, and 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.” New this year, a 3-hour opioid session that directly addresses how the team caring for the surgical patient can minimize post-operative pain and the need for opiate prescriptions.

Course Highlights:

  • Enhanced recovery starts with clearly defined preoperative preparation that involves the spectrum of health care team members, including the patient.
  • Intraoperative approaches have the entire scope of the patient’s care in mind including post-op recovery – multimodality pain control, pre-emption of nausea, and fluid management to minimize post-op ileus.
  • The opioid epidemic is a major national health care crisis. The course has added a session that directly addresses how the team caring for the surgical patient can minimize post-operative pain and the need for opiate prescriptions.
  • Post-op order sets and team care optimize patient recovery, convey the experience of accumulated knowledge and minimize complications and hospital stay.
