Welcome to ASER

Surgical recovery can be optimized with evidence-based pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative interventions. Patient education, nutrition, and preconditioning combined with intraoperative and postoperative standardization can improve patient safety, enhance quality of care, advance outcomes, and speed recovery, all while optimizing resource utilization and satisfaction.

Message From The President

The American Society for Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Medicine (ASER PM) is a dynamic organization established to provide continuing professional development related to the development and implementation of Enhanced Recovery Programs, the practice of Perioperative Medicine, and overall Quality Improvement in Perioperative Care. The membership of ASER PM is an interprofessional and multi-disciplinary body representing anesthesiology, surgery, nursing, pharmacy, nutrition, healthcare administration, health IT & analytics, and many other disciplines.

As the President of ASER Perioperative Medicine, I am thrilled to introduce our updated website and announce a number of exciting developments. First, the Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Medicine Annual Congress will be taking place in Nashville, TN from September 11-13, 2023. Please consider attending for an amazing line-up of speakers, excellent networking opportunities with colleagues from around the world, and a great time for socializing in Nashville! Second, our members will soon have access to a large and ever-growing archive of educational materials, including recordings from the 2022-2023 Vanderbilt Perioperative Medicine Webinar Series. Starting in July this series will be hosted and led by ASER Perioperative Medicine and each of the presentations will be archived for use by ASER PM members. Presentations from our annual congress will also be made available to members. Third, as we are moving past COVID and growing toward the future, we are revamping our committees and welcoming participation by members in a variety of areas. Please check out the Committees page for more information.

Finally, if you have any suggestions or comments for ASER PM or would like to become more involved in our organization, please do not hesitate to reach out to our headquarters ([email protected]).
