A Surgical Workflow is the documentation of your procedure, made up of Objectives and Steps.
An Objective is an overarching goal, describing a principal section of the surgical workflow.
A Step is a physical action that is done by the surgeon to achieve one of the Objectives.
The structure of a Step includes the action, instrument, and anatomical location. For example:
Use (instrument) to (action) to (anatomy).
Screw(action) the nail(instrument) into the femur(anatomy).
Tips are additional information that help to achieve a step safely. This can include other surgical approaches, anatomical information or instrument utility.
Instruments are the tools used to perform an action in a step.
An image can be added to a Step to further support communication.
