Minimally Invasive GI Surgery: Past, Present and (?) Future

Milwaukee, WI US
January 16, 2013

This educational activity is designed to incorporate evidence-based pathophysiology, diagnosis, and/or treatment of surgical disorders into clinical practice. Speakers will 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 date 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.
Needs Assessment:
After surveying the literature, we found some major, general shortcomings in current clinical practice:
1. Adherence to the guidelines for prevention of surgical site infections and thromboembolic events
2. Familiarity with the latest guidelines developed by national and international societies based on evidence-based medicine.
3. Detection of stress, fatigue, and maintaining a work-life balance.
4. Awareness of advances in surgical subspecialties.
5. Awareness of proper methods of professional communication and handoffs.
6. Cognizance of methods of surgical innovation.
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.
