Enhanced Recovery After Surgery

Surgical Services Taskforce and Anaesthesia Perioperative Care Network

The purpose of the web resource is to support sites interested in implementing an ERAS Model of Care and will provide:

  • an explanation of the ERAS concept
  • information about general ERAS components utilised across different specialties
  • detailed information on one specialty specific example, colorectal surgery.

The web resource will also provide examples of established ERAS services in NSW public hospitals and outline the benefits and barriers of implementing ERAS . The ACI developed this web resource through interviews with colorectal surgeons, ERAS coordinators and anaesthetists involved in the process at Concord, Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) and St George hospitals. The experience of a patient who participated in the ERAS program was also captured.
