7:30 AM Registration and continental breakfast
8:00 AM Introduction Laura Bix, Ph.D. MSU School of Packaging
Mary Kay Smith, MSN, RN, Director MSU Learning and Assessment Center
8:30 AM Perceptions of Medical Device Packaging used by Operating Room Personnel

Medical device packaging plays a vital role in patient health and the intensive user environment. When little conscious thought is given to packaging, it has the potential to compromise patient outcomes.Seven focus groups consisting of total of 21 operating room healthcare personnel were conducted in the greater Lansing and Cleveland areas and analyzed with a coding scheme. Research objectives were: to identify common problems associated with medical device packaging in order to provide a basis for future research. Read More...

9:20 AM The role of medical device pouches as a source of indirect contamination and potential infection contributor

Hospital-acquired infections are a lingering issue that plagues hospitals the world over. Much of the available literature approaches the issue from the hospital’s perspective: traffic in the operating room, hand sanitation, micro perforations in gloves during prolonged use, etc. Recently, researchers have approached the issue with packaging in mind. Tony Trier’s master’s work investigated the relationship between pouch size and likelihood of product contact with a non-sterile surface. Tony continued his work as part of his dissertation on design factors for flexible pouches.Read More...

10:10 AM Break
10:40 AM The Incredible Journey of George: Using the patient's journey to understand provider roles, expectations and needs regarding packaging

Many people think a nurse, is a nurse, is a nurse. However, this is not the case. This presentation follows George from the scene of an accident, into the ER to the varied environments of the the acute care (pre op, intra op, post op and ward care) as a platform to discuss how varied care context influence the goals, and in turn aspects of packaging that are important to differing providers. Laura Prochnow, RN will moderate a panel discussion of providers from varied care environments.

Laura Prochnow, MSN, RN, MSU Learning and Assessment Center, and a team of Healthcare Providers
11:40 AM Lunch Break
12:45 PM Defining Simulation and Application to Packaging

Industry focus is shifting from protecting the product to protecting the patient; with more therapies being applied by the patient and a quickly growing geriatric population- packaging needs to keep up with these developments. Learn how Michigan State’s simulated ‘hospital’ is allowing students to look critically at how packaging is used, (and misused), in real-world settings, and what the industry has learned from these tests.

Mary Kay Smith, MSN, RN
1:15 PM Pre-hospital Simulation: EMERGENCY!
George was going about his daily farming routine when all the sudden the unthinkable occurs. View in as Emergency Paramedics arrive to the scene and assist George with his life-threatening injuries.
Healthcare Provider Team
1:35 PM Small Group Debrief of Pre-hospital Simulation

7:30 AM Continental Breakfast
8:00 AM Welcome
8:05 AM Medical Device Packaging, A BSI Auditors Insight The regulatory environment for medical device companies can be challenging. When packaging is added to the equation a whole new level of verification and validation must occur and this is where a vast majority of issues will come up. Our clients; from packaging material developers, contract manufacturers to OEMs; have allowed me to share their experiences. Their stories and my insight to the regulatory world will be reviewed in this informative session. Nicole O'Connell, Client Manager for Medical Devices at BSI
8:55 AM Regulatory Insight
10:10 AM Break
10:30 AM OBGYN Simulation
Just as George’s daughter takes a breath after her father’s tragic accident, she herself is suddenly panicked as pre-term labor begins unexpectedly. She is whisked to the hospital by friends and the story unfolds as one patient becomes two distressed patients.
Healthcare Provider Team
10:50 AM Small Group Debrief of OBGYN Simulation
Join the detailed discussion with all the HcPIE attendees about the OBGYN simulation to gather insight with your peers as to how the situation was handled. What surprised you? What was as expected? How will what you have learned change how you design your next package?
All Attendees

12:20 PM Lunch Break
1:30 PM A scientific approach to peel profiles and contamination Javier de la Fuente, Ph.D. Candidate, California Polytechnic State University
2:20 PM Waste Mapping The session will cover the progress of developing a waste map model for 6 Kaiser Permanente medical centers, using lean manufacturing principles. The waste map provides a visual representation of the identification, flow, and ultimate disposition of material through the medical center. Challenges & opportunities of the waste map project, metrics, and the costs/benefits of environmental sustainability will be discussed. Timothy Eng, Project Manager at Kaiser Permanente
Millie Calistri-Yeh, Senior Staff Engineer for Research and Development at BD Medical
