ERAS® WHITE PAPERS

ERAS® is short for Enhanced Recovery After Surgery. The ERAS definition refers to a multimodal perioperative care pathway or protocol designed to achieve early recovery for patients undergoing major surgery.
ERAS® is:
  • Patient-centered
  • Multi-modal
  • Multi-disciplinary
  • Evidence-based

Numerous research reports have shown that employing ERAS as opposed to traditional care has marked effects on recovery. In many events, recovery time can be shortened by 30% or more, and complication rates after the surgery by at least as much.
The ERAS® guidelines are developed by the ERAS® Society, which is an international, professional non-profit organization. It was founded in 2010 with the mission to “develop perioperative care and to improve recovery through research, audit, education, and implementation of evidence-based practice.”

HOW ERAS® IMPROVES PATIENT OUTCOMES

ERAS has been shown to reduce surgical complications which leads to fewer readmissions and shorter hospital stays. This will reduce costs, increase healthcare efficiency, improve patient satisfaction, and promote multidisciplinary teamwork. By working together using the most up-to-date evidence, clinical teams can coordinate their care processes more effectively, reducing the risk of clinical variation and improving compliance to the ERAS program by gathering prospective data to ….
