Deborah Watson is the ERAS care pathway coordinator at the McGill University Health Centre-Montreal General Hospital site since 2008. Deborah completed a bachelor of science in Nursing from the University of Montreal and a master degree in Nursing from Athabasca University.
Her understandings of the role, tasks and responsibilities of the nurse coordinator in the creation, implementation and sustainability of an Enhanced recovery program can encourage and inspire those who want to expand on an existing program or for those who are new to the concept of Enhanced Recovery. Health Literacy and patient education/engagement are her preferred topics.
The MUHC team has expanded throughout the years and has created, implemented and sustained a multitude of pathways within thoracic, general surgery, urology, orthopedics, gynecology and vascular services.
Deborah relies greatly on the participation of her multidisciplinary team comprising two supporting and leading physicians: Dr. Liane S. Feldman and Dr. Francesco Carli.
