Will support research into the use of ERAS (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery) in combination with

laparoscopic digestive surgery. This could include one or a combination of: 1. Evidence synthesis with identification of gaps to prioritize research

2. Development and validation of patient reported outcomes to measure postoperative recovery, responsive to differences between laparoscopic and open surgery

3. Clinical trials investigating specific elements of ERAS for laparoscopic

surgery (eg fluid management, mobilization, nutrition, exercise, analgesia etc).

4. Knowledge translation work developing implementation strategies for ERAS programs for GI surgery, such as innovative audit and feedback strategies.
