Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: This study explores the experience of cancellation of surgery for patients. It has positively affected nursing practice by influencing policy and protocol development. Findings have been insightful, moving, and meaningful. Understanding what patients have gone through to be ready for surgery and hearing their stories is a humbling experience. We now have the ability to focus on what the patients say as helpful during surgical cancellation. This is of interest to nurses, allied health, and hospital administrators in improving patients' experiences. We have seen great improvement in both patient and staff satisfaction.
