There is strong evidence that many of aspects of surgical care have little evidence, and therefore the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program has been set up to accelerate the recovery process and decrease the rate of postoperative complications. There is an opportunity to improve outcomes by using team approach and revision of the standard procedures.
– The elements of ERAS protocols
– How to structure the Team approach
– The role of the patient in ERAS
– How to perform an audit of your program
