Olle Ljungqvist MD PhD
Chairman of the Executive Committee ERAS@Society
This year I am pleased to see the ERAS® Society taking another major step forward in Asia with the running for the 1st ERAS®ASIA congress with the full support of the ERAS®Society. This event will bring together the expertise internationally from the region but also from the rest of the world to bring the latest in Enhanced Recovery and evidence-based care for the patient undergoing major surgery. The program will feature several of the leading surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and allied health professionals in a truly multi professional and multi-disciplinary approach to the care. There will be plenty of room for discussions and interactions and the perfect meeting place to present your data for discussion and review by leaders in the field. For newcomers to ERAS there will be introductions to the basics and information on how to get an ERAS program up and running in your unit. With Singapore as the first hosting city the success of this meeting is guaranteed.
It is with great pleasure that I, on behalf of the ERAS®Society, welcome you to ERAS®ASIA 2019!
