Why Should You Attend?

Many hospitals either have no rounding process or have a dysfunctional process. Sometimes rounds can take hours as they are combined with medical teaching rounds or change of shift report. Therefore it is important that organizations understand the best practices in interdisciplinary care rounds, particularly walking rounds.  This program will focus on the roles of each team member in the rounding process. Included will be the physician, the resident or hospitalist, the staff nurse, the case manager, the clinical pharmacist, and the documentation improvement, specialist. Other communication strategies to be covered will include patient care conference, huddles, and internal transfers.  Also included will be strategies for planning for rounds and how to script the team members to optimize the time spent discussing each patient.  Key structural points for you to include while developing your own rounding process will also be included.
