Systemic Approach in Perioperative Care

Dear readers,

Now it's time for a new stuff. After introduction about KM (but I still did not tell you what I really use KM in my hospital), I would like to tell you about our latest progress in our PCT.
After we reviewed data of perioperative period that shown us many mistakes happened during pre- & postoperative period so I and my team agreed to create new way to our success (again)

At first, we did not expect what result it will be but after we did make this conference, we all appreciated about how people reacted and happily be a part of this project.

I did start this project by asking all nurses, nurse aids, and everybody who involves in taking care patient in the IPD to join this project. I also asked doctors to be mentors in each group of conference. I did use the process of PBL (Problem-Based Learning) by dividing participants in half and this confenece took 2 days to finish. Each day we divided participants in 3 groups and each group will have their own specific question such as 11-year old boy with RLQ pain or 60-year old male with OA knee who needed to operate. Then we had 2 mentors in each group (1 doctor and 1 nurse) guiding them to finish all 3 qustions we gave (3Qs: History taking, preoperative preparation, and postoperative care in specific patients). We also gave them papers about how to prepare in perioperative period which is the knowledge asset. At last we did ask them to make short presentation and also doctors did give them great comments and advice so everybody will know what the other group did. We also had the pre-& post-test for them.

We still cannot predict about the result of perioperative care but what we know is that everybody who involves in IPD knows how to approach to patients (at least in theory).

Anyway we just wish what we try to do here will give some good result. Definitely we cannot change each of every person but at least we try .
Thank you for your interest and give us your time reading this article. Please do not hesitate to leave some comments. I will appreciate reading them :0)
