Abstract

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS®) is an evidence-based approach in perioperative care. The implementation and translation of ERAS pathways into clinical practice requires a certain investment in time and money. A multidisciplinary team must be gathered and should undergo training according to the ERAS Implementation Program. Close attention to financial aspects of implementation, including projecting return on investment, is necessary in today's cost-conscious healthcare environment. Despite frequently encountered barriers and resistance to change, the common objective of reducing complications should overcome these barriers, so that every patient benefits from the most appropriate perioperative care.
