Challenging the “Jeopardy” in Patient Safety

Sharon McNamara, RN, Perioperative Consultant, OR Dx+Rx Solutions for Surgical Safety

This presentation will challenge attendees with questions on evidence-based practice (EBP). Through a game show format, the perioperative practitioner will, individually, answer questions from a patient scenario. The questions on safe practice will require the attendees to use EBP and critical thinking skills to support the correct answer related to minimally invasive surgery, prevention of retained surgical items and prevention of hypothermia. Practitioner safety will relate to prevention of sharps injury, surgical smoke safety and prevention of transmissible disease. At the end of the presentation, attendees will score their answers.

Sharon A. McNamara is an internationally recognized speaker and consultant on perioperative practice. McNamara is an owner and consultant for OR Dx + Rx Solutions for Surgical Safety consulting firm, coordinator of a patient safety column for the AORN Journal and collaborative coach for the North Carolina Quality Center.
