Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a multidisciplinary, multi-modal approach to perioperative care.Overview
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.
* 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.More Information »
