Government Affairs

Our Government Affairs team protects and promotes the perioperative profession at both the state and federal levels.

Learn about state legislation, read news specific to your state, and find out how to contact your state coordinators.

We understand it can be difficult advocating for your perioperative profession and have put together some helpful advocacy tools and resources.

Building relationships with your elected officials and offering your expertise is essential to insuring that patient and OR staff safety are priorities at your state legislature.

Allied health care providers and support personnel contribute to optimal patient care processes in a variety of ways.

The AORN Government Affairs team analyzes and reports on the impact of local, regional and national policies, regulations and legislation as it relates to the perioperative profession.
