Introduction

As a society, we are often contacted for advice by healthcare professionals who are new to their roles in ERAS.  In our recent article - "What is an enhanced recovery nurse", which was published in Gastrointestinal Nursing this summer, we briefly discussed the main roles that were reported by ERAS nurses in our 2015 survey.  We would like to build on this knowledge by asking our members a little more detail about these roles.  We would like to contrast the opinions of ERAS nurses with their colleagues in the multidisciplinary ERAS team and ultimately reach consensus on an optimal ERAS nurse job description.

Participation in this survey is completely voluntary and, should you decide to take part, we ask that you respond only once.  Your responses will be completely anonymous, unless you volunteer specific information in the comment fields.  All responses will be combined for analysis, which will further protect your anonymity.
