Collaboration with AORN to develop the Technology in the OR (TOR) Tool: How Does Technology Affect the Nature of Surgeries for PeriOperative Nurses – A Research Study

The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) approached the Nursing Informatics faculty of a major university with the request to collaborate on the development of a new computer-based informatics competency tool as well as a survey instrument for determining utilization and relevancy of current perioperative technology. The goal of this collaboration was to develop a survey tool that can be used to assess the technology use of perioperative nurses and surgical outcomes.
Process: A collaboration proposal by AORN and Chamberlain Nursing Informatics group, created a timeline for the research and tool development. Through meetings with AORN editors and SMEs, the research process and potential outcomes were revised as was the research question, “How does technology affect the nature of surgeries for perioperative nurses”? The outcomes of this ongoing collaboration will be the development of a reliable and valid survey tool that will be used annually, assess utilization of perioperative technology and three peer-reviewed, published articles for the AORN journal.
