May 9-12: World Congress of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery and Perioperative Medicine

May 9, 2015 - May 12, 2015

The Congress aims to bridge the gap between disciplines and professionals in healthcare. ERAS is a multimodal perioperative approach to enhance recovery after surgery. The Congress offers a unique platform for education in perioperative care. It is an opportunity for key industry professionals, key opinion leaders and all committed to the improvement of perioperative care to share knowledge, network, exchange ideas, debate and discuss the very latest clinical data and developments, face to face, all under one roof. The Congress gathers world expertise in perioperative care.
