Enhancing Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is an important aspect in patients undergoing surgery and encompasses a multifaceted, multidisciplinary team effort. Nutrition, especially in the perioperative period is a significant, yet neglected part of patient care which needs special attention. Understanding every aspect of ERAS and nutrition pertaining in a surgical setting is very essential. Indian Association of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (IAPEN) jointly with SRM Institutes for Medical Sciences (SIMS Hospital) takes pride in hosting a 2 days conference on “Enhanced Recovery After Surgery and Nutrition for Surgeons” (EnhaNS 2015) in Chennai, ‘India’s nutrition capital’. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensivists, physicians, nurses and nutritionists contribute to enhancing recovery of the patient in their own way as a team in the perioperative period. Surgeons do their best to eradicate the basic pathology, anesthesioloigsts and intensivists make perioperative period as safe as possible, nurses and nutritionists act as a bridge between the clinicians and the patients. The focus of this conference is on highlighting the basic ethos of team work in carrying on ERAS effectively. This conference will have a special emphasis on perioperative nutrition with eminent faculty from within and outside India, providing insight to newer concepts of nutrition and their effective use in clinical practice. We plan to make this meet as scientific and interesting as possible through panel discussions, vibrant interactions, didactic lectures and short presentations.
