Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: Surgical oncology is a very highly specialized area of the health care arena. The goal of this poster is to describe how the surgical oncology program was initiated and developed at Montefiore Medical Center along with the identification of key requirements for success. Description of Events: In February 2009, Montefiore Medical Center launched an initiative for a cancer care center of excellence. Along with this, came the real challenge of program development. Montefiore Medical made a strategic administrative decision to answer an unmet community need of cancer care. The operating room (OR) at Jack D. Weiler Hospital responded to the challenge given to them by acquiring key components in order for the program to succeed. Outcomes: Interdisciplinary leadership is needed on all levels, including medical staff, OR nurses, scrub technicians, housekeepers, intensive care nurses, PACU nurses, pharmacists, and perfusionists. The team approach has optimal outcomes, i.e., direct CICU admits from the OR bypassing the PACU, epidural placement in the preoperative area not the OR, and OR team (anesthesia and nursing) to the ICU for noncomplex cases for critically ill patients. Staff education is of primary importance and has tremendous impact in identifying roles, responsibilities, and actions. It was found that a system's approach to pertinent data/information is beneficial, inactivating a person dependent system. Human and financial resource appropriations are inherent in program development and follows planning and utilizing situations positively. As of October 2010, new staff includes six new surgical oncologists, one research nurse, and one data base manager. Perioperative Nursing Implications: Resource sharing is possible. Patient centered care with "can do" spirit has positive patient outcomes and is required for success. Timely communication is a valuable tool. A consistent nursing team enhances efficiency.
