Using Evidence to Improve Outcomes for the Surgical Patient: Post-Operative Interventions

Thursday, January 16, 2014
7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
On January 16, NYSPFP will host an educational webinar featuring hospitals in New York State that have successfully implemented post-operative interventions to reduce harm to the surgical patient. During this webinar, hospital representatives will share their experiences of implementing effective evidence based strategies to reduce harm to surgical patients such as appropriate glucose control in the post-operative patient, timely urinary catheter removal and venous thromboembolism prophylaxis. Additional strategies, including patient counseling on home glucose control and wound care, will also be discussed.
