Collaboration in, out of the OR: Two surgeons’ perspectives

By: Breann Kakacek, BSN, RN

Nurse leaders know that a successful workplace fosters and celebrates teamwork. In the OR, teamwork among surgeons, surgical technologists, circulating nurses, anesthesiologists, and first assistants, to name a few, is critical to ensure patient safety and positive outcomes. And teamwork does not have to be reserved for inside the surgical suite. Perioperative leaders know this and often strive for strong collaborations within their surgical departments—and they know that involving surgeons in their collaborative efforts and initiatives can sometimes be difficult.
