Abstract

Implementing Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) guidelines is an effective method to standardize patient care, improve patient outcomes, and develop quality improvement projects. Completing the required ERAS Implementation Program provided by the International ERAS Society enabled the hepatopancreaticobiliary surgery team at Carolinas HealthCare System to successfully implement evidence-based practice changes for pancreaticoduodenectomy patients on an acuity-adjustable unit resulting in improved care and cost reduction.
