VGH has been successfully implementing enhanced recovery for elective colorectal patients since mid-2013 and launched an enhanced recovery protocol for radical cystectomy in October 2014. Planning is in progress to roll out enhanced recovery to other procedures. Presentations and publications on enhanced recovery by the VGH team include the Pacific Coast Surgical Association, JAMA Surgery, Sages/ERAS Society Canada, CAS Annual Meeting, and World Anesthesia Convention.
Drs. Mayson and Warnock will present an overview of Enhanced Recovery, including evidence, outcomes, and experiences in implementing the protocol.
