Want to reduce complications and support shorter hospital stays and safer transitions after surgery? Access the Enhanced Recovery Canada™ (ERC) Gynecologic Pathway. This pathway follows the patient experience from pre-admission to post discharge and has been built on six core pillars:

  • patient and family engagement
  • nutrition management
  • fluid and hydration management
  • early mobility and physical activity
  • surgical best practices
  • pain management with fewer narcotics (multi-modal opioid-sparing analgesia)

This resource also includes a template for physician orders as well as a data collection and measurement resource, both of which are aligned with the ERC Pathways.
