Engaging Management In Local AORN Chapters


Austin Area AORN chapter is experiencing the same issues as many other chapters; membership decreasing and fewer active members. The 2011-2012 Officers and Board members have noticed the lack of participation and support of the chapter from senior surgical services management teams. In an effort to assess what barriers the managers might have preventing them from participating in the local chapter, an eight question survey was developed. Operating Room managers had access to the survey through an on-line survey tool, attached to e-mails, and by personal response. An action plan was developed based on the results of the survey to involve the senior facility leaders to include a panel discussion from the area managers as a continuing education presentation. Austin Area AORN would like to share this tool at assist other chapters in dealing with membership problems.
