Boston Sim Community Meeting at Ariadne Labs

Blog - Boston Sim Community Meeting at Ariadne Labs

Join us Tuesday, April 23, 2019 5:30PM-7:00PM for the Boston Simulation Community Meeting hosted at Ariadne Labs401 Park Dr 3rd floor East, Boston, MA 02215. Refreshments and hors d’oeuvre will be served.

At this meeting, Megan Delisle, MD and Alexander Hannenberg, MD will present: Video-Triggered Teamwork Training: Assessing Impact of a Low-Barrier Prototype.

This session will provide participants with an understanding of what has been learned about teamwork training over the last decade and where there is opportunity to broaden its availability. This perspective on teamwork training comes from an examination of approaches in a variety of industries and review of the published literature on effectiveness and impact of many methods. A new framework for teamwork training will be shared that may be adaptable to many contexts and have sufficiently low burden of adoption that it can be widely used. This represents the current thinking behind a new teamwork training model under development at Ariadne Labs (Brigham & Women’s Hospital – Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health). The theoretical underpinnings supporting this new training model will be reviewed in addition to some early findings on its usability. Finally, the audience will have the opportunity to provide feedback on future testing strategies and discuss ideas for collaboration with the greater simulation community.
