Nurse Executive Leadership Series

Nurse Executive Leadership Seminar

The Nurse Executive Leadership seminars are innovative programs designed to help develop perioperative leaders. Walk away with new ideas, fresh perspectives and best practices you can apply in your own facility. Network with peers and gain skills that empower you to make a difference as a leader.

To provide an example of the high-level topics the Nurse Executive Leadership seminars address, below is the topic from the Spring 2016 seminar.

Stop the Madness: Optimize Your Preference Cards Once and For All

Objectives:

  • Identify healthcare policy and legislative issues affecting perioperative nursing.
  • Determine operational issues and inefficiencies in the daily functions and workflow of the preference card process.
  • Discuss strategies for preference card reviews and ways to standardize processes to improve OR efficiencies and cost savings.
  • Identify how process improvement projects can be used to improve structure, workflow, collaboration and overall staff and physician satisfaction.
  • Construct methods to implement and sustain improvements.

This workshop will give perioperative nurse executives new ideas and resources to improve preference cards and standardize processes, increase efficiencies in workflow, help control inventory costs and develop and implement plans to strengthen the collaboration and communications between the OR staff and physicians. It is designed especially for professionals who are struggling with their current process and seeking solutions, strategies and techniques to improve collaboration and find cost savings throughout the perioperative process and ultimately improve the quality of patient care.

Primary focus areas:

  • Healthcare policy and legislative issues impacting perioperative nursing
  • Variables that play into preference cards
  • How preference card improvements tie to "triple aim"
  • Importance of preference card standardization
  • Key stakeholders for success
  • Cost savings that can be achieved
  • Management and maintenance of charge capture
  • Process improvement plan development and implementation with accountability

Nurse Executive Leadership seminars offer attendees great opportunities to network and collaborate with their peers. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from subject matter experts, perioperative professionals and industry partners to discuss current issues and best practices.

Nurse leaders are encouraged to bring their materials manager and/or sterile processing director/manager.

Participants will work in small groups and use methods and tools discussed in the morning to respond to your facility’s challenges. Afternoon activities will focus on developing an action plan to implement a process improvement plan specific to your facility.
