Date: December 17, 2014
Time: 1pm (PT); 2pm (MT); 3pm (CT); 4pm (ET)

Overview: As perioperative nurses, we are prepared to identify and meet the clinical needs of our surgical patients. Patients also have unique characteristics and nonclinical needs that can affect their perioperative experience. Identification of cultural and spiritual practices, mobility, communication style, and preferred language are important in providing safe patient care.
