Perioperative Services has been updated to include:

  • Patient- and Family-Centered Care, a revised chapter reflecting the deepening view of patient and family engagement as an essential strategy to patient success. Recent changes, some ensuing from political opposition to the Affordable Care Act, are reflected in this thought-provoking chapter.
  • Competence in Perioperative Nursing, an updated chapter keeping current with trends in maintaining and ensuring nursing competence and measuring competency. New and continuing challenges, the demise of the diploma method of education, the lack of standardization among educational programs, and the pressure to meet regulatory and accreditation agency requirements are discussed in depth
  • Using Lean Six Sigma Techniques in Surgical Suite Planning, a chapter examining how applying Lean Six Sigma (LSS) can cause eye-opening moments that pinpoint opportunities to reduce or eliminate things that cause waste, repetition, and overburden.
  • Quality in Perioperative Services, a chapter providing an overview of quality in the OR, strategies to identify areas for improvement, and approaches to address recommended practice changes.
  • Simulate for Success, a chapter offering an in-depth look at simulation as an engaging method to teach and assess the knowledge and skills of participants.
  •  Social Media in the Perioperative Setting, a chapter exploring the intentional and unintentional effects of social media in the perioperative setting; describing dilemmas health care providers need to be aware of with the presence of social media; and examining solutions focused on how social media and technology can coexist with safe perioperative patient care.
