The ERAS Society USA Chapter held its founding meeting on Sunday, October 16, 2016 in Washington, DC with the mission to develop perioperative care and to improve recovery through research, audit, education and implementation of evidence based practice. Our mission is to improve perioperative care and enhance postoperative recovery through implementation of evidence-based practice, audit, education, and research. Central to this mission is a culture of inclusivity and recognition of the importance of multi-professional and multi-disciplinary collaboration.
