AORN Perioperative Conference and Expo 2016

Calling all perioperative nurses and healthcare workers! AORN Surgical Conference and Expo is upon us once again, April 2-6, 2016 in sunny Anaheim, CA. We’re looking forward to another great conference and expo with new technology, scientific data, as well as great education seminars and events.

AORN Surgical Conference and Expo 2016 – Events to See

Education Sessions – Over 65 to sort through! From ambulatory to clinical to evidence-based practice/research, there’s a little of something for everyone to continue your education track.

OR Executive Summit – This special summit is geared for the day-to-day periop leaders. Managers, directors, vice presidents, and even chief nursing officers should attend this event. There are a lot of changes that leaders are dealing with today, and this is a way to get some creative insight to make improvements. There is a separate registration for this and additional fees do apply. Don’t forget to check out the breakfast symposium presented by 3M Health Care on Monday (4/4/16) from 7:00-8:00 am: Embedding an Infection Prevention Nurse in the OR.

Leadership Development Summit – This summit isn’t restricted to current leaders or job titles. Anyone who aspires to be in a leadership role should check out this event. This event is a chance to network with other future perioperative leaders. This event also has a separate registration and fees. Check out the lunch symposium presented by 3M Health Care on Tuesday (4/5/16) from 12:15-1:15 pm:  The Relationship between the Sterile Processing Department and the Operating Room.

Stop Unintended Perioperative Hypothermia Before it Begins. Actively warming surgery patients before anesthesia induction is called prewarming. Prewarming is an effective way to help prevent intraoperative hypothermia in many surgical cases. Both the 3M Bair Hugger system and the 3M Bair Paws system use convective warming to help maintain a patient’s body temperature, and also can make the patient surgical experience a bit more comfortable. This year at the 2016 AORN Expo, we will have patient warming experts on hand to help you see, and feel, the difference! Before you head to the expo, download a copy the prewarming sheet and get your questions answered by one of our experts.  Want to discover even more? Take a free continuing education course on the topic! We look forward to see you in Anaheim!
