Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Motivated by society's deep trepidation regarding surgery and the growing need for nurses, the exhibit entitled, "Experience Life in the OR," was developed to provide to the public an opportunity to see the operating room in a non-threatening environment and to promote the field of nursing. For the third year, in celebration of PeriOperative Nurses Week, St. Lukes Surgical Services and AORN Treasure Valley Chapter #1302 created hands-on displays at the Children's Discovery Center of Idaho. The preparation and planning for the display is set up to facilitate all aspects of the exhibit. A specific timeline is used to facilitate the preparation and planning of the exhibit. A basic signup sheet is developed and dispersed early on to captivate volunteers from the local AORN chapter and the local hospitals. Team leaders are developed for planning of individual displays within the exhibit. Each team obtains an outline for the display and creates each display according to outline and education focus. Vendor participation and coordination is performed for obtaining instrumentation, simulative equipment, and any other resources for the event. The advertisement of the event is completed through efforts between hospital leadership, Discovery Center marketing, local TV organizations, and other resources to develop effective advertising and flyer distribution. During the event, an evaluation is performed to understand outcomes and future planning.
