Topic: Perioperative Care: An evolving role for the hospitalist: Panel Discussion, Facilitated by Rachel Thompson MD MPH SFHM
Thank you all for coming out to desert! Great to see so much of the PNW in San Diego!
Join PNW SHM Chapter for desert March 7, 8pm. We will walk to Chocolat and enjoy the evening!
Meet Rachel Thompson in the Lobby at 8pm.
A great evening discussing the role of hospitalists in building collaborative programs in perioperative care. Drs. Thompson and Dagal from Harborview Medical Center gave an overview of their Enhanced Perioperative Care Program. Specialists from UWMC, Swedish, Multicare also shared their experiences. Long and short – HM is expanding and perioperative care is an area in which we will be increasingly asked to assist. Start planning now, be a part of the building – make it collaborative with your surgical and anesthesia colleagues.
In follow up to our discussion in November, James O’Callaghan, MD FAAP SFHM has shared the 360 Review that Children’s has implemented to engage nursing feedback for physicians. Thank you Jim!
Thank you all for a wonderful 2015 – we had an excellent discussion on November 19th at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel around nurse and hospitalist interactions and collaboration. We were lucky to have several nurses and nurse managers from various hospitals.We talked about the importance of multidisciplinary rounds, developing co-education, challenges in communication, the holy grail of geographical units and RN/MD comanagement of units, engaging RNs and MDs in quality improvement, the importance of understanding each others stressors and developing 360 feedback as well as engaging RNs on MD hiring panels!
