A Resource for healthcare providers. Clinical Pathways for Colorectal Surgery. Enhanced Recovery Canada.

Please click here to access the Enhanced Recovery Canada™ (ERC) Colorectal Pathways. These pathways follow the patient experience from pre-admission to post discharge and have been built on six core pillars: Patient/Family Engagement, Nutrition Management, Perioperative Fluid and Hydration Management, Perioperative Early Mobility and Physical Activity, Surgical Best Practices and Multimodal Opioid-sparing Analgesia.

This resource also includes a template for physician orders as well as a data collection and measurement resource, both of which are aligned with the ERC Pathways.

Interview with Dr. Henrik Kehlet

Dr. Henrik Kehlet is perhaps the most well-known surgeon among anesthesiologists around the world due to his substantial contributions toward the understanding of surgical pathophysiology. After a natural evolution from his studies on the surgical stress response, Dr. Kehlet launched in the mid-1990s the concept of "fast-track surgery": a multimodal, evidence-based approach to surgical care. Through a series of prospective cohort studies and randomized controlled trials initially using the model of colonic surgery, Dr. Kehlet demonstrated that modifying the perioperative surgical stress response and revising traditional surgical care could have a dramatic impact on postoperative recovery and shorten the length of hospital stay.
