CC2019: AHRQ Safety Program for Improving Surgical Care and Recovery: What Can It Do For Your Patients? (PtS)

This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Address Regulatory Mandate for Patient Safety. Learn more about state regulatory mandates.

Session Description

The American College of Surgeons, in partnership with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), has developed the Improving Surgical Care and Recovery (ISCR) Program to support and connect hospitals implementing enhanced recovery (ERAS) across colorectal and orthopaedics. Participating hospitals that have achieved success with this approach to care have frequently moved to adopting the principles of patient-centered care, optimal nutrition, early mobility, multimodal analgesia, and best practices for preventable harms for all patients. In addition to describing enhanced recovery principles, this session will also highlight best practices for successful adoption. This session will share results of the collaborative opportunities and lessons learned with clear take homes for attendees to consider at their own institution.
