We are ecstatic to announce that our research team's poster titled Rounding with Teams: Evaluation of Interprofessional Collaborative Practice was not only accepted to and presented at the Association of Operating Room Nurses' (AORN) Global Surgical Conference & Expo, but that our poster was presented the Research Poster First Place Blue Ribbon out of more than 300 posters! The theme of the conference was "Harmonized Care, the Key to Safety", which aligned perfectly with our presentation. The poster presented findings from research investigating how well the Medical/Surgical interprofessional teams utilize IPCP during patient rounds, as well as how the patients' percieved their teamwork skills.
Our study Principle Investigator, Dr. Aletha Rowlands, and Program Manager, Kayla McCormick, attended the conference and presented the poster. A picture of the duo and the poster will be published in the AORN Journal's June edition.
