Program Description: 

This educational activity is designed to incorporate evidence-based pathophysiology, diagnosis, and/or treatment of surgical disorders into clinical practice. Speakers will utilize their personal, institutional and evidence-based experience to address patient health care conditions requiring clinical and surgical treatment.  Speakers will also utilize departmental quality improvement data, M&M data, and patient safety data to improve outcomes of surgical disease and other aspects of surgical patients’ general health. Evidence-based data regarding the changing aspects/newer approaches to surgical disease will be analyzed, and critical issues related to surgery within the broader scope of American health care will be discussed.
There are varying degrees to individuals’ knowledge regarding clinical and surgical treatments.  While individuals may be aware of varied treatment within the surgeons’ armamentarium it is beneficial to address the topics from an evidence-based approach. Learners should both have the knowledge base and be able to apply this knowledge into their practice.
Grand Rounds will address each of these shortcomings by utilizing nationally known experts in the field. Each week will provide diverse information pertaining to these issues.
