Team Communication Approach to Surgical Smoke Safety

Challenges persist in many facilities when it comes to implementing safe surgical smoke practices and ensuring compliance – a foundational element in our perioperative culture of safety.
There are solutions you and your team can use to make meaningful change through collaboration and mutual respect.

Join AORN for this free, live virtual Hot Topics Forum and come away with proven strategies on effective ways to advocate for surgical smoke safety in your OR. Ask your questions during a live Q&A with the experts, including the author of the latest AORN Guideline on Surgical Smoke Safety, which is now open for public comment.

After attending, you will be able to:

  1. Explain surgical smoke hazards and perceived barriers to surgical smoke safety.
  2. Describe strategies to promote a safety culture and a smoke-free perioperative environment.
  3. Discuss how to implement newer technologies for smoke evacuation in healthcare facilities.
