                                            patients are in the optimal condition for treatment, have

                                          To improve the quality of pre, intra and post operative care for patients undergoing major
                                          elective surgery by implementing the enhanced recovery model of care

                                          What does good look like against the indicators
                                          • Implementation of ER - All patients should benefit from the enhanced recovery model
                                            of care and clinical teams should have approximately 80% of the relevant enhanced
                                            recovery elements embedded in the patient pathway. However, the pathway should be
                                            locally determined.

                                          • Delivering an average length of stay - without adverse impact on readmission and
                                            postoperative complication rates. Identifying the appropriate length of stay for each
                                            procedure for the majority (80%) of patients.

                                          • Delivering an improved patient experience – patients are empowered and able to
                                            contribute to the management of their care and be involved in the process for
                                            continuous quality improvement.                      You're better, sooner!

                                          • The Government is committed to the continuous improvement of the quality of
                                            services to patients and plan to produce a set of exemplar CQUIN goals that
                                            local commissioners and providers can draw on when agreeing local CQUIN
                                          • The exemplar goals could later be considered as national goals (either
                                            mandatory or as part of a national „pick-list‟) as the 2011/12 Operating
                                            Framework is developed. However there are no specific plans around this.

                                          • It is anticipated that many exemplar goals will link in some way to the Outcomes
                                            Framework as the health White paper states ‘the CQUIN framework will be
                                            important for the implementation of NICE quality standards and improving patient
                                            experience and patient-reported outcomes’.

                                          perioperative complications
                                          Authors' conclusions: There was no evidence to suggest a shortened
                                          fluid fast results in an increased risk of aspiration, regurgitation or
                                          related morbidity compared with the standard 'nil by mouth from
                                          midnight' fasting policy.

                                          Permitting patients to drink water preoperatively resulted in
                                          significantly lower gastric volumes. Clinicians should be encouraged to
                                          appraise this evidence for themselves and when necessary adjust any
                                          remaining standard fasting policies (nil-by-mouth from midnight) for
                                          patients that are not considered 'at-risk' during anaesthesia.
