Statement of Need

Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) protocols represent comprehensive, multidisciplinary efforts to expedite postoperative recovery while reducing avoidable complications. Successful implementation of these protocols requires proper coordination between the surgeon, the anesthesiologist, the nursing personnel, the pharmacist, the patient, and the patient’s caregivers in the postoperative period. This has led to a need for interdisciplinary education to ensure that all team members are equipped to optimize patient outcomes.

This live question and answer session is your opportunity to ask questions based on the CME Outfitters Live and OnDemand where expert faculty focus on evidence supporting the integration of ERAS protocols and discussed employing them across interdisciplinary teams in order to facilitate collaboration, including the routine documentation of outcomes and evaluation of ERAS protocols.
