How is the AANA facilitating the care of patients? How can you make a patient a ‘partner in safety’? How do we coordinate so many disaparate systems of information and care?
Patient records and data ownership is discussed, as is Paul Upton’s excellent interview on TopMedTalk regarding “My Preop”. The original piece is here: https://www.topmedtalk.com/my-pre-op-empowering-patients-before-surgery/
How do we reach out to patients and inform them about the risks and choices which will be presented to them as part of their surgical pathway? Discussion here moves to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and the incredible work they are doing.
