OR Today Webinars ‘Consistently Brings Relevant and Critical Information’

The recent OR Today webinar “United We Stand Divided We Fall: Collaboration is the Solution You’ve Been Searching For!” presented by Michelle Lemmons, RN, BSN, PHN, was eligible for one (1) continuing education (CE) hour by the State of California Board of Registered Nursing. It was sponsored by Key Surgical.

Lemmons, clinical educator-OR at Key Surgical, discussed how we often get excited about a new idea that we believe could have a significant, positive effect on our department only to have the idea fall flat, or never get off the ground because of interactions with another department? In the hospital, operating room and sterile processing departments have immediate impacts on the other’s workflow, success and failure. This presentation was able to shed new light on the value of collaboration and the role leaders, staff and management play in the successful implementation of new and improved processes.

More than 150 individuals registered for the live presentation of the webinar. A recording of the session is now available for on-demand viewing.

In a post-webinar survey, attendees were asked to provide feedback regarding the webinar series.

“Michelle was very engaging! She clearly is very knowledgeable about the topic of collaboration. I will always remember that collaboration also means ‘co-labor’ as she shared from her husband. The topic is very timely. I will be able to use some of this information for a project that I am planning with other clinical areas in conjunction with SPS,” shared C. Wylie, RN-RME coordinator/supervisor/educator.

“I have been dealing with a lot of change in leadership. The seminar helped me remember that there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to lead,” RME Coordinator D. Maestas said.

“OR Today consistently brings relevant and critical information for the health care industry in an easy-to-consume format,” said B. Brown, a vice president of sales and marketing.
