A special edition of TopMedTalk recorded at The Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH) live from an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) leadership forum.

We begin with a question from the audience; how do we drive change in our institutions towards enhanced recovery after surgery? The GIRFT (Getting It Right First Time) project is explained. The Health Foundation is also mentioned. The piece also includes patient communication and the question of 'how much is too much?', when administering a dose of morphine. Also, is there a hierarchy on the pathway of enhanced recovery after surgery?

The conversation features Professor Monty Mythen and his two guests; Dr Simeon West, consultant anaethetist at (University College London Hospitals) UCLH who sits on the board at Regional Anaesthesia UK (RAUK) and Mark Harper Consultant Anaesthetist at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, with a research interest in the prevention of perioperative hypothermia and the use of cold water adaptation for theraputic purposes. There are also questions from the audience.

This piece is part two of a two part series.
