The ERAS® World Congress is the unique occasion that brings together eminent world experts and leaders in perioperative care. This congress is organized by the multi professional and multi-disciplinary ERAS® Society that is active around the world. It is the best opportunity to meet, listen to and discuss with specialists from different horizons that share their expertise and provide participants with the most recent updates, new concepts, state-of-the-art lectures and progress in perioperative care. This is reinforced by the participation of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, hospital administrators … bringing the patient into the heart of medical care.
The ERAS® World Congress aim to reinforce the patient centered care through the interactions between all medical actors and networking. Interdisciplinary debate and multidisciplinary approach allows experts to bring their opinions and to debate with the auditorium.
Our goal is to continue to organize an exciting and outstanding meeting with worldwide experts and delegates.
Heartily welcome and we look forward to seeing you in Stockholm,
