This free webcast on the new ASCRS Enhanced Recovery Program (ERP) Guidelines will address physiologic principles behind preoperative carbohydrate loading, the medications used in multimodal analgesia (MMA), and strategies for prophylaxis of post-operative ileus (POI). Instruction will be given on how to implement ERP at learner’s institutions and on the benefits for all elective colorectal surgery patients, including those undergoing complex operations to reduce sub-optimal post-operative patient outcomes.

Primary target audience
All providers (colorectal surgeons, internists, nursing, APPs, anesthesia providers) caring for patients with colorectal diseases.  As this involves every aspect of care from preoperative evaluation through to perioperative care and surgery to post-operative recovery, this is an ideal topic for a multi-disciplinary approach.

Learning objectives

  1. Describe the physiologic principles behind preoperative carbohydrate loading.
  2. Discuss the medications used in multimodal analgesia (MMA).
  3. Apply strategies for prophylaxis of post-operative ileus (POI).
  4. Recognize that an ERP can benefit essentially all elective colorectal surgery patients, including those undergoing complex operations.
  5. Explain how to implement an ERP at their own institution.
  6. Discuss the value equation as it applies to an ERP.

The recording of this session will be available for CME in the ASCRS Online Learning Center. Notifications will be sent once the recording is posted.
