Assessing Effectiveness and Implementation of a Perioperative Enhanced Recovery Protocol for Children with Inflammatory Bowel Disease
What is the goal of the study?
The institution of perioperative Enhanced Recovery Protocols (ERPs) has been found to decrease hospital length of stay, in-hospital costs, and complications among adult surgical populations but data in pediatric populations are lacking. The Assessing Effectiveness and Implementation of a Perioperative Enhanced Recovery Protocol for Children with Inflammatory Bowel Disease study is a multicenter, pragmatic, prospective study, using a stepped wedge cluster randomized controlled trial design. ENhanced Recovery In CHildren Undergoing Surgery (ENRICH-US) is designed to test the adoption, effectiveness, and generalizability of a newly developed, 21-element, ERP (the ENRICH-US Pathway, heretofore referred to as ENRICH-P) for children undergoing surgery for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
