Reviewer, Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Patient Goals Poster Review

Posted • Last updated


Open to Patient Partners in Vancouver Coastal Health communities

Last updated

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Programs have been shown to improve surgical outcomes and overall patient experience. The Quality and Patient Safety team is looking to create an ERAS Poster that is patient centered, and empowers patients while highlighting the key research based components that will aid in their recovery from surgery. Research shows that the activities included in the poster can support improved recovery from surgery. They will be trialing the posters in patient rooms on one unit at Vancouver General Hospital.

Your Involvement: Prior to using the posters, the project team would like to get some feedback from CEANs on the poster. There are no criteria for this opportunity, it is open to everyone.

Please click here to review the poster and answer some questions to help guide feedback by end of day Tuesday September 24th, 2019. 

Please contact if you have any questions. Thank you!

Where those of us in the room may have debated policy or wording, patient voices made sure patients were top of mind. And as a result, significant improvements were made to simplify something that was otherwise complex. Patient voices at the table bring us back to reality in terms of what we are trying to achieve.
