  • FREE WEBINAR: First Step to Prevention of Perioperative Pressure Injuries: Risk Assessment

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 10/02/2019 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

    Despite all the attention given to perioperative pressure injuries, a lack of understanding of contributing risk factors and appropriate prevention measures persists. In fact, according to the National Health Care Quality Report, 60,000 patients die annually related to complications from pressure injuries. Join us for this free webinar, where Cassendra A. Munro will discuss correct application of the Munro Scale© risk assessment instrument, a simple method designed to help perioperative nurses with identification of patient-specific and perioperative risk factors related to pressure injury.

  • FREE WEBINAR: Creating Efficiencies in Your OR: A Surgeon’s Perspective

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    In ORs across the country, perioperative personnel are tasked with doing more with less resources. Join us for this free webinar, where you’ll find out how to identify and adopt protocols, processes, and parameters that improve overall efficiencies in your OR every day. Simple yet strategic modifications can yield significant improvement and translate into real time savings for every case.

    In ORs across the country, perioperative personnel are tasked with doing more with less resources. To stay competitive and effective, today’s OR leadership and staff must identify and adopt protocols, processes, and parameters that improve overall efficiencies every day in every OR. Simple yet strategic modifications can yield significant improvement and translate into real time savings for every case. Dr. Ravi Munver is a urologist who has systematically documented and tracked his OR efficiencies and time savings. During this webinar, he will share his published data on how he and his staff at Hackensack University Medical Center have created identifiable and reproduceable efficiencies in the OR. Notably, attendees will understand how OR delays associated with full-time use of reusable ureteroscopes can be minimized by selectively utilizing a single-use ureteroscope.

  • FREE WEBINAR: Doing More with Less: Get the Most Out of Your OR Capacity

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Join us for this free webinar you’ll learn about decision-making strategies to take the right action when right-sizing blocks, the benefits of leveraging mobile and cloud technologies to replace manual request and release processes, and how objective and timely “single source of truth” metrics help surgeons and administrative leaders improve OR performance.

    Operating rooms generate roughly 40% of hospital revenue to serve as the “economic backbone” of most hospitals and health systems. Effectively managing OR capacity to increase access, right-size blocks, and engage surgeons with credible performance metrics are key factors that must be in place to maximize patient access and revenue. Failure to manage OR utilization leads to decreased performance. Too often, use of improper metrics, outdated block release and request tools, and untimely reporting hamper perioperative leaders’ efforts. In this webinar you’ll learn about decision-making strategies to take the right action when right-sizing blocks, the benefits of leveraging mobile and cloud technologies to replace manual request and release processes, and how objective and timely “single source of truth” metrics help surgeons and administrative leaders improve OR performance.

  • FREE WEBINAR: The Heat Is On: Understanding the Impact of Heat Stress on OR Staff’s Physiological and Psychological Wellness

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Join us for this free webinar where you will learn about the unique challenges associated with managing heat stress in the OR. You’ll find out the key factors contributing to the occurrence of heat stress in the perioperative environment, its effects on OR staff performance, and methods of reducing heat stress in the OR.

    Heat is a very real issue for surgical staff working in the OR setting. Temperature and humidity requirements for ORs, combined with donning personal protective equipment (PPE), may all contribute to perioperative personnel experiencing heat stress in the delivery of care. When surgical staff are overheated, this can cause several negative effects, including adverse physiological responses, cognitive impairment, and reduced employment satisfaction. During this webinar you will learn about the unique challenges associated with managing heat stress in the OR and how surgical team members can address the issue.

  • FREE WEBINAR: Using Value-Based Management to Transform American Healthcare

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    In our presentation we will review key elements required for providing patient-centric, value-based procedural care and explore how to overcome long-standing barriers to making the shift to value-based healthcare, complete with examples of successful value-based initiatives that illustrate the elements of quality measures and successful cross-team collaboration.

    The transformation of American healthcare from fee-for-service (FFS) to value-based reimbursement is well underway. In a value-based system, providers are paid based on patient health outcomes, where “value” is a measurement of health outcomes against the cost of delivering the outcomes. Value measurements are designed to include patient satisfaction, quality outcome indicators, and cost. In this changing landscape, value-based procedural care requires close collaboration among a number of previously disparate groups (e.g., surgeons, anesthesia, nursing staff, administration). Consequently, traditional FFS reimbursement models have created a number of barriers to smoothly transitioning to fee-for-value care, especially in US hospitals. In our presentation we will review key elements required for providing patient-centric, value-based procedural care and explore how to overcome long-standing barriers to making the shift to value-based healthcare, complete with examples of successful value-based initiatives that illustrate the elements of quality measures and successful cross-team collaboration.

  • FREE WEBINAR: What Did 857 Perioperative RNs Have to Say About Covering and Observing Sterile Tables?

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This webinar presents the results of a survey that assessed whether the knowledge and attitudes of perioperative registered nurses (RNs) involved in operative procedures were associated with the practices of covering and observing prepared sterile tables during periods of delay or non-use. The researchers surveyed 18,196 members of the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) and received responses from 1613 RNs. The responses of the 857 RNs who completed the survey were included in the analysis. The results showed that both knowledge and attitudes were associated with practice.
