In 2013, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality released an update to the 2001 report “Making Healthcare Safer.” A systematic literature review was conducted to evaluate the evidence of safety practices. This session will present the findings and practices relevant to perioperative practice, the practices recommended by AORN, and the relevant gaps in research. Get introduced to AORN's recommended practices (RPs) for 2014. The recommendation levels based on evidence and entered in each new RP will be explained and discussed. Assess your knowledge of RPs and the new evidence rating process. Translating evidence to the bedside can be difficult to understand and this session will explain how AORN translates the evidence to the RPs and how the perioperative nurse can implement them in practice."
