argentina flagThe first national ERAS Society Symposia was held November 14 in Buenos Aires at the Italian Hospital, the first ERAS Society Center of Excellence in Argentina.

The event was hosted by Professor Adrián Alvarez with speakers from his own department and with guest speakers RN ERAS specialist nurse Valerie Addor and professor Nicolas Demartines from CHUV Lausanne, Switzerland and professor Olle Ljungqvist Örebro, Sweden.

The hall was filled to the rim with approximately 100 delegates not only from key centers in Argentina but also with key opinion leaders from Chile, Uruguay and Peru. During this event the principles of ERAS were presented alongside the work of the ERAS Society. The interest was extremely high and several teams have already shown their interest in implementing ERAS.

This event was the starting point of the building of the ERAS Society network in Latin America. For more information please contact professor Alvarez:tatotatun@gmail.com.
