The goal of this educational activity is to examine the latest development and current techniques in general surgery as they relate to a variety of featured topics. Using a disease-orientated approach along with panel discussions, didactic lectures, and participant engagement, the activity will cover a broad spectrum of diseases. Monthly, each division of our general surgery group will cover current topics.
MD/DO, RN, PA, and APRN
As a result of participation in this educational series, members of the healthcare team will improve ability to:
- Discuss communication and collaboration with partners in care of patients
- Review best current models of treatment for patients with various disease
- Discuss effective practice management techniques across roles and teams
