In memory – Eivind Warberg

This summer we lost one of our national ERAS leaders. Eivind Warberg sadly died in a drowning accident in Norway. Eivind was the lead Doctor for ERAS at Östvold hospital, and was about to take on a teaching position for the Norwegian ERAS Society. Dr Warberg was born in the Faro islands in 1976, got his medical degree at the University of Copenhagen, and via specialisation in surgery at Landssjukrahusiö Faro Islands, Rigshospitalet Copenhagen Denmark, Ullevål hospital in Oslo. He then completed his training at Östfold in Norway where he has since served. Eivind had a superb reputation as a brilliant surgeon and was a strong believer and enthusiastic leader of ERAS both at his hospital but he was also recognised internationally for his work. The ERAS Society community and patients have lost a young a promising leader and driver for better care and all of us who had the fortune to get to know him have lost a great colleague full of enthusiasm, friendliness and ideas.

Our thoughts go to his family in this time of sadness.

ERAS® Nursing and Allied Healthcare Research Group Survey

Dear colleagues

I am hoping you can participate in a brief survey that the ERAS® Nursing and Allied Healthcare Research Group have produced examining preoperative patient education.

What we are hoping to do is to identify key themes that ought to be covered during preoperative patient education so that patients are fully aware of ERAS and what their role is to enhance their own recovery i.e. preparing for surgery, early mobilisation etc. The ultimate aim is to produce a template for generic patient information that can be applied to all patients – all surgeries – all countries. This template would allow teams that are new to ERAS to benefit from an ERAS® Society produced document that can be adapted locally to suit the needs of the team.

Please can you spare a few moments completing the attached survey using the link below:

Once we have completed the survey, members of the ERAS Nursing and Allied Healthcare Research Group will review and collate the results.

I look forward to your comments and feedback.

Many thanks and best wishes from the ERAS® Society
