Effective leadership is critical to ensuring safety, efficiency and maximum productivity in the operating room (OR). This practical, evidence-based book unpicks the dynamics of a successful OR environment to underline the key techniques for management of policies, systems, staff members and teams. Fully updated to include recent clinical guidelines, the book provides the 'A-Z' of OR management, including sections on metrics, scheduling, human resource management, leadership principles, economics, quality assurance, recovery and ambulatory practice. New chapters include future healthcare models, emergency preparedness and budgets amongst other topics. Written by authors with unrivalled experience in the field, chapters are laid out in an easy and clinically helpful format to assist learning, and real-life case studies cover seventy-three different clinically relevant pain topics.
