The SAGES SMART (Surgical Multimodal Accelerated Recovery Trajectory) Task Force provides the education and materials needed for surgeons to adopt a strong, evidence-based Enhanced Recovery Program (ERP) into their practices.
As such, SAGES has developed the following SMART Enhanced Recovery Program resources:
- The SAGES SMART Enhanced Recovery Program website, a living resource of best ERP practices and guidelines for SAGES members.
- The SAGES/ERAS Society Manual of Enhanced Recovery Programs for Gastrointestinal Surgery, a companion to the website, provides more in-depth guidance on implementation of ERP concepts.
- The SAGES/ERAS Society Canada course, ERAS 2015: Creating a Culture of Enhanced Recovery, a one-day symposium which will address the issues related to the organization of ERPs for surgery from a multidisciplinary point of view.
- Additional SMART ERP courses will follow at SAGES 2016 at the Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, Boston, MA on March 16-19, 2016.
