Enhanced Recovery After Surgery, Optimal Surgical Recovery Requires Teamwork 2016
In collaboration with:
Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) is a multidisciplinary, multi-modal approach to perioperative care. Evidence-based data is employed to optimize the patient’s postoperative recovery; promoting early recovery while post-operative complications and costs are reduced.
This proactive approach is comprised of data-driven, well thought-out interventions: “Postop recovery start at preop.”
- 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 or institution.

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.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the science and evidence supporting best practices in Enhanced Recovery to optimize their patient outcomes
Anethesiologists and CRNAs
- Develop an improved understanding of how intraoperative interventions re: fluids, PONV prophylaxis, pain management, etc., can continue to affect patient outcomes in the post-operative period.
- Recognize their involvement in facilitating the logistics of bringing together multidisciplinary teams that will improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.
