Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN), Healthy Hearts in the Heartland (H3), and Vizient are pleased to welcome Michael McGee, MD, for a webinar on “Implementing an Enhanced Recovery Program for Surgery.”

Dr. McGee, a colorectal surgeon at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, will share his experiences carrying out a large-scale quality improvement program that included a strong patient engagement component.  The program reduced wound infections after colorectal surgery by 50% and reduced readmissions by 40%.

Dr. McGee will describe the barriers his team experienced while changing the protocol in a large healthcare system, and will share the strategies they used to overcome challenges. He also will provide examples of how data was used to change culture and garner support. Q&A follows the presentation.

Target Audience:  This webinar is designed for physicians and other healthcare professionals.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize barriers to implementing a large quality improvement (QI) project
  2. Develop strategies to overcome barriers to implementing a large (QI) project
  3. Detail basic tenets of surgically enhanced recovery protocols
  4. Develop audit and feedback programs to enhance performance of existing QI projects
  5. Apply this information to professional practice

These learning objectives align closely with the TCPI change package; quality improvement programs that include patient and family input are included in Drivers 1 and 2.
 
This is the first webinar in a 3-part series with a quality improvement focus on reducing readmissions and engaging patients and their families.
