Associate Professor Tom Wainwright has been invited to be a Guest Editor for the Medicina Special Issue “Nursing and Allied Health Professional Focused Research on Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS)”.
Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) is a multimodal, multidisciplinary approach to the care of the surgical patient. The special issue in Medicina aims to gather submissions that highlight the innovative work undertaken by nurses and allied health professionals within ERAS pathways across all surgical specialties. The editors welcome research led by or involving nurses, operating department practitioners, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, pharmacists, radiographers, healthcare assistants, or any other non-medical professional involved in ERAS. Research from work conducted at the pre-operative, intra-operative, post-operative, and post-discharge stage is welcome.
Over the last ten years, Associate Professor Wainwright has promoted the introduction of ERAS by providing consultancy and training services to national bodies, private healthcare groups, and individual NHS hospitals. Along with the team at ORI, he has pioneered the research into ERAS, with contributions to guidelines, textbooks, conference posters and implementation. He is joined in the editorial team by colleagues from the ERAS UK Steering group, Dr. David McDonald, Dr. Fiona Carter and Ms. Angie Balfour.
This special issue is now open for submission, and authors should submit their manuscripts on the MDPI webpage.
