Lessons Learned and Key Insights: Enhanced Recovery Canada’s Colorectal Guidelines 

June 20, 2024, 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. ET 

The Colorectal Surgery Guideline is based on surgical best practices and provides guidance on all stages of the patient’s journey, from pre-admission to post-discharge. It supports a multidisciplinary team approach and can be used by providers across the surgical care continuum. 

Join us on June 20 as our panel explores what’s new within the revised Enhanced Recovery Canada Colorectal Surgery Guidelines. Learn how to identify key stakeholders who need to be involved and their roles, what elements are essential when implementing the colorectal pathway and explore exciting future directions in managing colorectal surgery patients, including same-day discharge, to help them feel better and return home quicker.
