Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Our goal is to plan a perioperative tour that follows a patient's experience on the day of surgery. While our goal is to educate prospective patients, we also hope to interest school-aged children in the career field of surgical nursing. Our team consists of perioperative staff, marketing, housekeeping, and security. Anesthesiologists and surgeons are recruited for demonstrations. The planning begins with choosing topics for the room displays, collecting supplies in the perioperative areas, and contacting health care industry representatives for acquiring instrumentation and teaching displays. We map the area for the tour to reduce congestion and plan interactive displays that flow with the perioperative course of care. On the day of the tour, visitors begin at the welcome desk to sign a guest book. Tour guides then lead guests through the patient care areas and encourage them to participate with the staff and displays. A photographer is available to capture the day's events. Local news teams are invited and have previously run video from our event. We have had 200 plus visitors of all ages attend. At the tour's completion, evaluations are available and young attendees are given a certificate of attendance. Information from evaluations help us plan future events. Our perioperative tour opens the department to an area that is normally off limits to the public and hospital staff. Our compassionate, educated team provides comfort and answers question in a teaching environment.
