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.

Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:
- Clinical expertise can be very difficult to define. Attendees of this session should feel inclined to discuss the differences between human observation for clinical skills assessment and sensor technology.
- Attendees of this session should be able to define haptics and should feel inclined to make a record of the subconscious haptic maneuvers that they make in any given clinical examination/procedure.
- Attendees should be able to think critically about the applications of technology in healthcare. As clinicians, we are oftentimes the end-users of such technology. To ease the implementation of technology into the healthcare setting, we must understand the nuances of how any given technology can facilitate/disrupt our clinical workflows.
