ASA leaders and executive staff participated in the inaugural National Surgical Patient Safety Summit, which was co-hosted by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and American College of Surgeons on August 4-5 in Rosemont, Illinois.
More than 100 representatives from medical associations, insurers, health care systems, payers and government agencies were involved in the summit, which focused on empowerment of each member of the surgical care team – including the surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurses and all supporting staff – to take responsibility for patient care.
Workgroups made up of representatives from surgery, anesthesiology and nursing met prior to the summit to develop draft recommendations that will be used to prepare National Surgical Patient Safety Standards, help develop surgical safety education and identify research priorities.
