Taking Enhanced Recovery to the Next Level: The Improving Surgical Care and Recovery Program (PtS)
This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Address Regulatory Mandate for Patient Safety.
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Safety Program for Improving Surgical Care and Recovery (ISCR), a collaborative program between the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and Johns Hopkins Medicine Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, is a new initiative that seeks to meaningfully improve clinical outcomes by supporting hospitals in the implementation of evidence-based enhanced recovery pathways applied within the framework of the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP). Enhanced recovery is a clinical pathway and approach to surgical care that promotes the delivery of evidence-based perioperative care and reduces variability. The purpose of this session is to provide an overview of the program, review experience with colorectal surgery, and highlight future opportunities for participation.
