Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: To improve communication between perioperative and research staff involving patients enrolled in clinical research studies in a busy, academic medical center. This collaborative effort was initiated to develop a tool that is used to notify and communicate essential information and details of clinical research protocols to operating room (OR) staff. Preparation and Planning: The tool was developed by a task force of registered nurses from the department of surgery and perioperative services. Implementation: After several revisions of the tool, the document was piloted, revised, and ultimately introduced to OR staff. After a patient's surgery was scheduled that had been identified to be included in a study, the research staff member sent the completed form with details, including date of surgery, purpose of the study, verification of signed informed consent, and other pertinent details regarding the research to the appropriate staff members in the OR. Outcome: The OR staff reported an increase in knowledge of the care of patients enrolled in research studies. The tool increased safety measures through a more effective method of checks and balances, compliance with protocol, and identified the need for appropriate training with clinical protocols and devices. The research staff reported a more effective process for accurate data collection, better overall communication with OR staff, and improved billing of study devices. Implications for Perioperative Nursing: This new tool assists the perioperative nurse to plan the research patient's care effectively, increases patient safety, and provides a collaborative effort to assure compliance within the study protocol.
