Connections & Quality: The Power of SPD Partnerships (Conference of Champions Special Release)

What is the power of creating partnerships in the perioperative setting? How do these partnerships impact Sterile Processing success and quality of patient care? On this week’s Beyond Clean special release, we’re sharing an exclusive interview from the 2022 HPN SPD Department of the Year award winners, NorthShore University Health, from our “Conference of Champions” event earlier this year.    If you ask NorthShore University Health System’s Director of Sterile Processing, Courtney Mace Davis, she will tell you the value of establishing “perioperative partnerships” in healthcare settings is indispensable. How do you establish these partnerships you may ask? In their opinion it all starts and ends with RESPECT! Join Courtney, along with Embry Alavarez & Caryn Moore to hear how thier SPD team learned how to engender respect for their role through cross-departmental partnerships, accountability, and automation. Gather your favorite perioperative co-workers and tune in!
