Title:Clinical Nurse Specialist in Education- Ambulatory Surgical Program
[Evidence-based Practice Session - Paper or Poster Presentation] Ambulatory surgery accounts for now 70% of all elective surgical procedures. Ambulatory surgery has gained patient acceptance and its cost effectiveness is widely proven. Innovative surgical techniques and less toxic anesthetics have facilitated this trend. However, there has not been a corresponding trend in establishing nursing best practice guidelines as well as effective pain management for ambulatory patients post operatively. The purpose of this presentation is to showcase an electronic database which will be used to capture information obtained from the telephone questionnaires of patients following discharge from an ambulatory surgical procedure, thereby increasing efficiency and accuracy of patient satisfaction data, streamlining data management and revealing further best nursing care practices for our patients.
