Welcome to the Canadian Operating Room Leaders (CORL) Web Site
CORL is a volunteer network of perioperative leaders established in 1999. Our purpose is to advance leadership education by sharing resources and knowledge from experts in the field to assist members obtain the best practice information and support for making leadership decisions.
Perioperative leaders include committed registered nurses from the point of patient care, education, supervisory, managerial and director roles.
CORL is an affiliate member of Operating Room Nurses Association of Canada (ORNAC) and holds one Board position (since November 2005). CORL members participate in ORNAC Standards development and competency statements.
Through this web site we provide a Reference Library for members which consists of a summary of pertinent administrative principles, clinical principles and current practice, including diverse opinions and perhaps controversy. Evidence based resources and reference materials are included whenever possible.
CORL sponsors leadership education at the biennial ORNAC National Conferences.

CORL members contribute regularly to the Canadian Operating Room Nursing Journal.
