Postgraduate Course 1: Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (PG1-2019)

Mar 23 | 7:00AM - 11:00AM

Pre-Conference Course

Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) is a program consisting of multimodal interventions in the perioperative period. ERAS programs have resulted in improvements in clinical outcomes and costs. Nutrition is one of several components of an ERAS program and this post graduate course will allow you to take a deeper dive into these nutritional components. Join us for an exploration into the fundamentals of ERAS, screening and improved outcomes, protein supplementation, and nutrition approaches for pain management for enhanced recovery.
