What is Enhanced Recovery After Surgery?

Enhanced Recovery Canada. Putting patients first, improving patient safety

Enhanced Recovery Canada is a project of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute leading the drive to improve surgical safety across the country and is based on Enhanced Recovery After Surgery – ERAS surgical best practices.

These evidence-based principles support better outcomes for surgical patients including: an improved patient experience, reduced length of stay, decreased complication rates and fewer hospital readmissions.

                    In partnership with:                      

ERAS Society

Enhanced Recovery Canada endorses six core ERAS principles to shift the surgical care paradigm:

  • Patient and family engagement
  • Nutrition management
  • Perioperative fluid and hydration management
  • Multi-modal opioid sparing analgesia
  • Perioperative best practices
  • Mobilization
