Critical patients are moved constantly from location to location and their journey is fraught with complications. In fact, the movement has been thought to contribute to many errors and poor outcomes. This course is a one day compendium of simulation, quiz refreshers and talks on the important aspects of moving critical patients from point A to B safely. The faculty has decades of medical retrieval experience and it is open to ALL fields of health care who are involved in moving patients.
Effective teamwork and communication in clinical emergencies is fraught with difficulties and potential pitfalls, many of which can have serious consequences on patient safety. Effective communication in onerous situations is a component that is not formally taught in tertiary institutions nor is inducted in the workplace. In order to assure higher quality and safer patient care, a teamwork based system has been developed and is termed Crisis Resource Management (CRM).
CRM is an evidence-based teamwork system developed to improve communication and teamwork skills among health care professionals especially in the management of a critically ill patient. Communication tools featured in CRM advocate the use of information, people, and resources to achieve the best clinical outcomes for patients. The aim is to produce highly effective medical teams through
- Increasing team awareness
- Clarifying team roles and responsibilities
- Resolving conflicts
- Improving information sharing
To relate and then translate the 5 key dimensions of the JurongHealth CRM model to produce effective team performances, improve patient safety and decrease errors.
This workshop is an inter-professional workshop and targets healthcare workers in hospital based practices but in particular those involved in emergency medicine, intensive care medicine, anaesthesia and critical care spheres of practice. Residents and staff nurses working in the fields of Emergency medicine, Internal medicine and ICU would be ideal.
It should be of particular interest to participants of the medical SIMWars as it will enable them to better understand the non-technical requirements which need to be mastered to ensure a really successful campaign.
