Enhanced recovery after surgery
1. Read the literature: Go to the ERAS Society website to see the guidelines and studies on enhanced recovery after surgery.
2. Pay a visit to a hospital that has implemented enhanced recovery after surgery to see how it works.
3. Attend symposia and meetings, including the World Congress of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery, in May 2015, in Washington. That meeting will include a daylong workshop on how to set up a program.
4. Find a champion: A program like ERAS needs a leader who is invested and can motivate others.
