What’s the Holdup? Overcoming Operating Room Delays and Fostering Interdepartmental Collaboration

Brian Arndt, MBA, BSN and David Taylor, MSN, RN, CNOR, Principal, Resolute Advisory Group LLC

This session aims to familiarize the audience with how the practice of surgery is changing in the U.S. health care system. Four macro-trends will frame the presentation and give the audience a new perspective on surgical care and the stakeholders in the provision of surgery. The need for intradisciplinary collaboration in surgery will be reinforced throughout the presentation.

Brian Arndt is a healthcare leader who strives to walk in the footsteps of front-line team members and patients. Those interactions have led to his drive to improve processes and champion the patient experience. Brian prides himself on being able to quickly assess developing obstacles in the care environment and apply collaborative approaches to remove them. After nearly three decades in the healthcare environment, Brian will tell you that the most important thing he has learned is that in the absence of a healthy and collaborative environment all process and quality initiatives will fail. Teamwork and collaboration are the secret sauce that really make the difference.

David Taylor is a nurse leader, consultant, educator, author and nationally recognized speaker who examines the challenges operating rooms face as nurses manage their practice in the perioperative environment.
