Why ERAS protocols matter during the COVID-19 pandemic


Tuesday, February 9th, 2021 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT

Enhanced Recovery protocols are best known for their ability to reduce postoperative outcomes after surgery including reducing the use of opioids, Surgical Site Infections (SSIs), and hospital length of stay (LOS).  As hospitals are navigating supporting their patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols can and are continuing to play a role in reducing postoperative outcomes. 

 

Join this webinar to learn: 

  • How enhanced recovery protocols can be implemented without a large committee and budget, and how it can support hospital initiatives.
  • How enhanced recovery protocols can be leveraged during the COVID-19 pandemic. (i.e. virtual preop meetings, packs sent directly to patient’s homes, empowering patients prior to their procedures, and promoting overall patient wellness & care)
  • How to get started, continue, or expand enhanced recovery programs.
