AORN’s Center for Nursing Leadership is focused on supporting your need for continued professional development in managing the business side of perioperative services.
Hear panelists from across the country talk about their own experiences and best practices for how they built a positive culture within their robotics service lines. Their insights around training, using data for change management, and standardizing care that reduces burdens are ones you can use to scale throughout your own facility.
Healthcare leaders are uniquely positioned to advocate for underserved populations in their communities who lack access to proper nutrition, preventive care and essential services that cause comorbidities and worse health outcomes such as sudden cardiac, maternal-fetal, or COVID-19 deaths.
Some creative approaches – alongside the basics – are helping open the pipeline to recruit OR nurses. But how do you decide what to start, expand, or throw out for success?
With COVID-19 as an underlying condition – and potentially surging – what happens when a natural disaster or mass casualty strikes?
This panel discussed closing the gaps before a new, unimaginable scenario overwhelms your systems.
Plan your response to growing demand for minimally invasive surgery. Identify opportunities and explore strategies for expanding service lines and surgical settings that optimize staff and investment in robotics.
Staffing challenges in a robotics program negatively impact the ability of the team to deliver efficient, quality patient care. Learn how one facility used critical thinking to address staffing and training to improve morale – creating an efficient, high-performing robotics team.
Discover best practices from a proven block time management system that maximizes robotic time and ROI, unpack what inventory and staffing considerations you should make, and leave with proactive solutions you can implement for block time challenges at your facility.
Learn how to identify the key members of your robotics steering committee, how to align them with your hospital’s goals, and how to create ownership in driving toward future growth.
Uncover the importance of a dedicated robotics coordinator’s role in an efficient robotics team, and how to contain costs through efficiency measures. You’ll leave with Monday morning solutions that you can implement right away.
Learn how to lengthen the instrument life cycle and protect your investment by applying best practices for instrument and endoscope reprocessing. Identify proper care and handling, plus discover the most common instrument damages and their causes.
Understand which data you need to support and grow your program; know exactly which instruments are being used or not; and quickly make evidence-based changes to reduce variations and limit waste.
Understand what data from your robotics program you need to collect to resonate with your executives, how to analyze data to address change management initiatives, and learn which reports can help your team make evidence-based decisions for your program.
There is no “B Team” in robotic surgery – all perioperative team members have a stake in the success of the program, whether they’re in the robotics OR or not. Hear why robotics training should expand across the department to elevate teamwork and attain optimal outcomes.
Increase the ROI in your robotics program. Implement proven block-time management best practices that maximize robotic time and improve throughput and efficiency. Also learn strategies that reduce variation in robotic-assisted surgeries.
Put the rumors to rest. Robotic bariatric procedures are highly efficient when implemented with the full care team and new operational strategies.
You can’t eliminate frustrating, redundant or inefficient processes if you don’t know what they are. Learn to leverage data to make critical decisions that improve efficiency and consistency in your robotic surgery program.
A panel of experts from around the country describe their experiences and best practices in addressing personnel shortages and how they have been able to leverage their robotics service lines to alleviate strain.
