Evidence-Based Decisions in Surgery and Surgical Patient Education Collaboration

Evidence-Based Decisions in Surgery and Surgical Patient Education Collaboration

Evidence-Based Decisions in Surgery (EBDS) and the ACS Surgical Patient Education Program have come together to provide evidence-based practice guidelines and protocols that help guide your patient-care decisions. These materials include ACS patient education resources that enable your patients to be active participants in their own recoveries.

EBDS online practice guidelines and decision support modules discuss surgical paths related to the 20 most common general surgery procedures. Now many modules link to online ACS patient education tools.

The ACS Home Skills Training Program and Operation Brochures prepare patients to provide complex self-care after discharge. These materials give your patients the tools to manage their own recovery from their operations. 

Visit Surgical Patient Education to view the materials online as well as order kits and brochures.

As a benefit of ACS membership, all EBDS online modules are free.

Take advantage of this FREE evidence-based knowledge for you and your patients.
