ERAS 2018 Course Highlights

Enhanced recovery starts with clearly defined preoperative preparation that involves the spectrum of health care team members, including the patient.

Intraoperative approaches have the entire scope of the patient’s care in mind including post-op recovery – multimodality pain control, pre-emption of nausea, and fluid management to minimize post-op ileus.

Opioid Epidemic – Major Health Care Crisis. This course will directly address how the team caring for the surgical patient can minimize post-operative pain and the need for opiate prescriptions.

Post-op order sets and team care optimize patient recovery, convey the experience of accumulated knowledge and minimize complications and hospital stay.

ERAS Congress 2018 – Nursing & AHP break-out session

Calling all nurses and AHPs! 

We are now finalising the programme for the ERAS Congress next year so I am looking for suggestions from you about what we could discuss during the Nursing & AHP break-out session.

Normally – we invite a few speakers to share their ERAS experiences and normally include a patient perspective during the hour-long session. 

We are also looking for volunteers who wish to share their ERAS story with us ? I would ideally like to get AHP’s involved in this meeting so I need some physiotherapists/ dieticians and other specialists to contribute.

Please let me know if you have any topics in mind and/ or if you want to share your ERAS experiences with the group.

Many thanks

Angie Balfour, ERAS Society Nurse and AHP Lead

Report from the 2nd Singapore ERAS Society Symposium

The 2nd Singapore ERAS Society Symposium successfully concluded on 28th September 2017.

It was jointly organized by Tan Tock Seng Hospital and the ERAS Society. The focus of this year’s symposium was on the core ERAS principles and subspecialty implementation. The response was overwhelming, with more than 200 participants, and the discussion was robust and lively. We were honoured to have Professor Olle Ljungqvist, Professor Dileep Lobo and Dr Marianna Sioson as guest speakers at the symposium.

This year, in addition to local participants, there was also keen interest from regional countries like Malaysia, Hong Kong and Indonesia. The symposium was also streamed live to more than 15 countries around the world, including countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

We look forward to forming the Singapore ERAS chapter and the 3rd Singapore ERAS Symposium next year!

ERAS Society Philippine Chapter, 2nd Annual Congress, September 29-30, 2017, Manilla.

The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Society Philippine Chapter will be holding its 2nd Annual Congress on September 29-30, 2017, at The Medical City’s Centre for Advanced Skills, Simulation and Training Innovation (CASSTI) and Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria, Ortigas Avenue, Quezon City, consecutively.

This year’s theme is: From Principle to Practice (P2P).

With the overwhelming success of last year’s congress, we are holding a 2-day activity with a bigger venue to accommodate more attendees. Like last year, we expect the group of surgeons, obstetricians, orthopaedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, pain specialists, internists, nutritionists, nurses, and hospital administrators to be participants in this event.

Indeed, the benefits of the ERAS program have opened the eyes of health practitioners worldwide to this changing paradigm. The congress will not only highlight talks from experts from the local ERAS Centre of Excellence, but also from ERAS Society International and the Singapore Chapter.
