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.
