How Effective are Operator Rounds at Your Site?

RefComm is announcing our next step to push for even more collaboration, synergy and opportunities for interaction in our eRefComm programming. We bring you the same spirit and excitement found at one of our live events – Breakout Sessions! In our first virtual Breakout, participants will discuss the effectiveness of their site’s feedback loop, share successes and pitfalls, and learn from the experiences of their international operations colleagues. What an opportunity!

There are 250,000 pieces of equipment in the DCU

Do you have a comment regarding operations, equipment, or operator rounds? If so, please add your input to the Q&A section. During the session we will address the Q&A. Remember questions/comments can be upvoted. The more participation there is, the better the breakout session will become.
