'Enhanced Recovery is an evidence-based approach to care. It is designed to prepare patients for, and reduce the total impact of, surgery, helping them to recover more quickly. It is a multi-modal approach similar to that of care bundles' - Henrik Kehlet (Professor of perioperative therapy/Head of Section of surgical pathophysiology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University)
