    April 7 webinar

    In the past few years, perioperative leaders have faced ever-evolving disruptions (growing case backlogs and short staffing, to name a few) that require rapid pivots in order to adequately manage ORs with little time or insight. Despite the setbacks, the pressure to perform as a hospital’s primary revenue driver by not only maintaining but improving operating performance and productivity remains.

    Existing manual processes to manage perioperative operations and schedules have proven not only to be ineffective but to actually intensify the impact of these constraints. Join this webinar to learn how to unlock OR capacity whether you are recovering from a COVID wave or have returned to routine operations. From services that can help you prioritize backlogs or temporarily reconsider your block allocation, to a platform that helps you reclaim and redistribute OR time, we will discuss strategies on how to:

    • Align OR capacity to staffing and demand to meet the needs of your current environment, whether its navigating short staffing or limited beds, managing backlogs, or optimizing your normal routine
    • Provide visibility into available OR time and a centralized process to request or release time
    • Remain productive during turbulent times by leveraging tools that provide access to real-time data to support fluidity

    Using evidence based practice, perioperative nurses can and should lead efforts in process change for the safety of patients and team members. AORN recommended practices for sharps safety best practice include a four-prong approach. Blunt-tip suture needles, double gloving with a colored indicator under glove, use of a neutral zone for passing sharps and the use of safety devices such as retractable blades need specific consideration.

    A Roundtable Discussion with Perioperative Executives from Five Leading US Health Systems

    Decades before COVID-19, hospitals were struggling with how to effectively meet and manage standards of patient care. While the current pandemic has clearly introduced new burdens on nurses and nurse management, in many ways, the pandemic has severely amplified old issues and combined them with a new generation of challenges. Historically, nursing has been incredibly resilient; so much so that hospital leadership has unfairly relied upon nurses to weather any storm. Are we finally at the breaking point? If so, what can be done to move us in the right direction?

    October 6 webinar

    The Nurse and Physician Leadership at Surgical Directions will discuss the functional and tactical role analytics plays in their daily management and decision making. Not all data are required all the time. Given the volume of information that abounds in the procedural services and perioperative arenas, knowing exactly what data to focus on and for which tasks and objectives can be overwhelming. Moreover, having a peer-to-peer lens is crucial to driving behavioral change as well as adopting and understanding such change. As such, our clinical experts will outline the specific ways they work with their nursing and physician peers to leverage analytics and drive meaningful, measurable benefits into the operating room.

    August 18 Webinar

    Matching supply and demand patterns is a critical requirement in OR Management. On the supply side there is the staff (the right staff with the right skills), the ORs, anesthesia coverage, and the equipment; on the demand side there is the procedure volume, mix of types of volume, timing, and expected duration. 

    How can today’s OR managers and leaders ensure that surgeons have optimal access, that the ORs have the right staff and anesthesia coverage and balancing that with staffing shortages, anesthesia shortages, increasing case volume and declining reimbursement. These challenges require greater efficiency than those delivered by shaving off a few minutes of turnover time and greater visibility into underutilized blocks and staffed room utilization.
