Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Order Set Development and Program Audit

Primary Investigator: Dr. Hector Roldan 
Co-investigators: Dr. Jennifer Macmillan, Dr. Andrew Brown, Dr. Jessica Reid, Dr. Biagio Iannantuono, Jane Radey, Danette Beechinor, Leslie Secord, Lisa Allen

This project is a continuation of the ERAS project that was completed in November of 2017 at the Huntsville District Memorial Site of Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare. ‚ÄčIn this follow-up project we plan to create electronic order sets for ERAS to facilitate prospective audits for the ERAS components. Additionally, we will use those order sets to implement ERAS at our sister site - South Muskoka Memorial Hospital. We will then prospectively audit both sites and compare ERAS and non-ERAS surgeries for the outcomes of interest which are; surgical site infection, hospital acquired infection, ileus, and patient satisfaction. 

 This project is scheduled to begin in sumer 2018 and be completed in summer 2020. It is funded by the NOAMA Clinical Innovation Fund.
