Abstract: Improving Sustainability in the Operating Room
Climate change is already affecting patients today. It is our job to make sure that the operating room of the future continues to provide excellent care to patients while also healing the planet. In this session, we will learn about how current surgical care generates waste and how we might redesign the operating room to be more sustainability-focused.
