(C-9) Engaging Clinicians in Sustainability Using Novel and Creative Methods

Nautilus 3

This interactive panel will begin with a short didactic talk reviewing the common barriers to engaging clinicians in sustainability practices. A new app will be demonstrated in an interactive fashion that teaches clinicians how to “gas greener” by educating and allowing participants to track inhalational anesthetic usage and reduce wastage. The remainder of the panel will be an interactive demonstration of novel methods to engage clinicians. Examples include the use of a “Price is Right” style game to educate clinicians on the costs of items to increase awareness, the “What Can you Buy?” game designed to show clinicians how to translate waste reduction efforts into actual items that could be purchased, and how to turn collected vial caps into artwork. Attendees will have the opportunity to create their own vial cap art during the session.
