Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has demanded rapid adoption of new practice guidelines in all areas of healthcare to optimize safety for both patients and staff. These rapid changes in administrative and clinical proceedings, with often limited time for planning, have further increased the risk of inefficiency and systematic error. This webinar will focus on strategies to identify such procedural gaps to enhance practice efficiency and optimize patient and team safety. The knowledge shared on previous AAGL webinars will be integrated to continue to elevate care for our patients.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Employ effective and innovative strategies to increase clinic efficiency, access to healthcare, and patient communication through telemedicine and non-traditional clinic modules; 2) implement indicators and techniques to ramp up and ramp down your surgical practice according to the evolution of the pandemic in your specific region; and 3) reorganize staff and resources to optimize pre-surgical work flow to increase surgical efficiency and maximize patient and staff safety.
Target Audience: This educational activity is designed for all healthcare providers.
