- Type of Study: Observational/Survey
Audiovisual (AV) recording of clinical care in the Operating Room (OR) is a well-described phenomenon. Surgeons may record their operations for a multitude of reasons. Videos of operations are commonly submitted to national conferences used for surgical coaching and continuous professional development and used to study operative teams and care provided in the Operating Room. However, there are no society positions on best practices for AV recording in the OR, and few hospitals have formal policies guiding surgeons on AV recording, storage, and use of AV files. Our goal is to determine surgeon practices regarding the prevalence and reasons behind AV recording in the OR, data access and storage practices, and prevalence and nature of hospital policies and oversight. These data will be used to advocate for best practice guidelines at the level of surgical societies, with the goal of protecting patient confidentiality and providing hospitals and surgeons with guidelines for appropriate use of AV recording in the OR.
