The Connecticut Surgical Quality Collaborative Steering Committee is very excited to announce the symposium on Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) for Tuesday, March 31, 2015. The meeting will be held at Evans Hall at the Yale School of Management with dinner at 5 p.m. and lecture at 6 p.m. – 7:30p.m.
The speaker is Dr. Olle Ljungqvist, Chairman of the ERAS Society and Professor of Surgery, Orebro University, Sweden. Dr. Robert Lincer, a CtSQC member from Lawrence and Memorial Hospital has heard Dr. Ljungqvist speak and has seen full implementation of ERAS at St Mark’s Hospital in London, England where the program resulted in decreased length of stay, decreased readmissions, decreased infections and complication rates and improved patient experience.
The Connecticut Surgical Quality Collaborative Steering Committee has planned this event as the kick-off meeting of a state-wide, provider-sponsored rollout of ERAS. This is a very exciting opportunity and I hope you can join us.
