Report from the 2nd Singapore ERAS Society Symposium

tom October 5th

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!
