There is no consensus regarding which outcome measures should be used to evaluate enhanced recovery after cesarean delivery (ERAC) protocol success within research studies.
We aim to define a standardised core outcome set which can be used by researchers to evaluate ERAC protocol efficacy within future randomized controlled, observational and retrospective studies.
