Description: The principles of ERAS require continued improvement, audit and innovation: it is not an ‘implement and be done’ process. We are fortunate to have two ERAS leaders in our specialty, Gregg Nelson and Sean Dowdy. This course will focus on the practical considerations for program development including recent enhancements in ERAS, ongoing evidence demonstrating its impact on patients, use of order-sets and audit strategies. All of this will further accelerate your care of the surgical patient.
