Change Management Strategies: Improving Handoffs from OR to PACU
The passing of patient information is vital to the success of surgical outcomes. In today’s fast-paced environment, communication between different healthcare providers can greatly influence the overall quality and safety of perioperative care. This webinar will explore the effects of a new way of communicating about the patient and the need to perform handoffs in a consistent manner between the OR and PACU.
After completion of this continuing nursing education activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify principles of change.
- Discuss the core elements of handoffs from OR to PACU.
- Review specific patient information communicated in the handoff.
