Applied Fundamentals of Sustainable Health Systems: Sustainable Perioperative Care

Perioperative care has an outsized environmental impact via its substantial waste production, generation of direct emissions, and energy use. It is recognized as a significant area of opportunity for reducing healthcare’s environmental footprint.

Over two sessions, participants will gain knowledge, develop skills, and forge collaborations that will help them advocate for and participate in a bottom-up and top-down shift toward more environmentally sustainable perioperative care. Participants will hear from perioperative care providers on the front lines of sustainability efforts, and develop a project charter for a sustainable quality improvement project they can initiate in their own settings.

  • November 16th and 23rd, 2023
  • 1-3pm PM | 4-6pm ET | 5-7pm AT
  • Online via Zoom

As the effects of climate change continue to intensify, all sectors are charged with reducing carbon; the healthcare sector, which accounts for an estimated 4.6% of national greenhouse gas emissions, is no exception. Perioperative care in particular has an outsized environmental impact via its substantial waste production, generation of direct emissions, and energy use. It is therefore recognized as a significant area of opportunity for reducing healthcare’s environmental footprint.

Over two sessions, participants in this course will gain knowledge, develop skills, and forge collaborations that will help them advocate for and participate in a bottom-up and top-down shift toward more environmentally sustainable perioperative care. Participants will hear from perioperative care providers on the front lines of sustainability efforts, and develop a project charter for a sustainable quality improvement project they can initiate in their own settings.
