Also included will be strategies for planning rounds and how to script team members to optimize time spent discussing each patient.
Why Should You Attend:
Many hospitals either have no rounding process or have a dysfunctional process. Sometimes rounds can take hours as they are combined with medical teaching rounds or change of shift report. Therefore it is important that organizations understand the best practices in interdisciplinary care rounds, particularly walking rounds.
This webinar will identify the key stakeholders needed for effective interdisciplinary rounds. It will review the best practice rounding processes including scripting and time management. Following this we will discuss how to hardwire your rounding process so that it remains timely and efficient. The roles of each team member will be included as well as how to involve the patient and family in the bedside rounding process. Also important is the documentation of rounds either during or after they occur, so suggestions for effective documentation as well as a template for documentation will be included. Finally, strategies for how to evaluate your rounding process through outcomes metrics will round out this jam-packed program.
