Event Overview
Welcome message:

This seminar is designed to meet the demand by anesthesia communities to learn how to implement regional anesthesia and multimodal analgesia into successful ERAS programs for orthopedic, colorectal, and breast surgery. This workshop, limited to 20 participants, will teach you the tools needed to overcome common obstacles in program development and how to perform the ultrasound guided nerve blocks that play a critical role in ERAS program success.

Needs Assessment.

The majority of health care professionals are uneducated about Enhanced Recovery After Surgery for Colorectal, Orthopedics, and Breast surgery. There is a lack of understanding that there has been a change in the paradigm of health care to a system that is patient oriented,

outcome driven, and based on best practices. There is also lack of awareness of the critical role anesthesiologists provide with their ability to deliver narcotic sparing analgesia in the form of nerve blocks. This seminar is designed to teach participants the tools they need to develop ERAS programs and to learn the skill needed to perform regional anesthesia techniques. The majority of anesthesia providers in this country are unable to perform ultrasound guided regional anesthesia either because they trained before ultrasound technology was readily available or they are uncertain about their abilities.

This seminar has detailed lectures on the literature supporting nerve blocks for pain management and ample hands on training to reinforce ultrasound guided nerve block procedures. The target audience is anesthesia providers because anesthesiologists are leaders in ERAS program development and responsible for the perioperative management of pain.

Course Objectives.

Understand the basic principles of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery programs and why collaboration between stakeholders is critical for program success.

Understand the importance of opioid sparing anesthesia and analgesia in successful ERAS programs.

Learn the Anesthesiologist’s role in the pre, intra, and postoperative phases of ERAS programs.

Learn the indications, contraindications, and side effects of nerve blocks used on ERAS patients.

Learn the techniques to perform ultrasound guided regional anesthesia for colorectal, breast, and orthopedic surgery.
