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.
