Foreword: Crisis Management in Acute Care Settings

Screen Shot 2016-11-14 at 9.04.57 AM

Recently, Jenny Rudolph and Dan Raemer from the Center for Medical Simulation were invited to contribute a foreword to the third edition of Crisis Management in Acute Care Settings: Human Factors and Team Psychology in a High-Stakes Environment. This comprehensive text was authored by Michael St. Pierre, Gesine Hofinger, and CMS’ own Robert Simon.

Crisis Management in Acute Care Settings comprehensively addresses how human decision making and human factors can affect patient safety in acute care. The text identifies frequent errors and allows healthcare professionals to improve patient safety and give more effective treatment in emergency situations. Springer calls this book, “The required reference for all who are learning about, teaching, or providing acute and emergency healthcare.” We have excerpted the forward below for your perusal.

Crisis Management in Acute Care Settings is now available from Springer, in print and electronically.

The most significant exclusion from the third edition of Crisis Management in Acute Care Settings is any mention of Murphy’s Law: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Perhaps, Michael St.Pierre, Gesine Hofinger, and Robert Simon were uncomfortable about including a pseudoscientific law of nature that does not really exist? Or were they aware of the controversies surrounding the origin of this eponym? Whatever the case, this new edition of their now classic book does everything possible to explain the drivers of Murphy’s Law in acute care settings.

Well covered is the notion that when people are under stress, time pressure, fatigue, or working within poorly designed structures many things can go wrong. This book discusses how these organizational, psychological, cognitive, social, or environmental systems can unravel. Importantly, the authors also reveal how to pre- vent or interrupt their progression to disaster in clinical practice.

With practical case examples and admirable parsimony, this book covers complex and diverse fields in easy-to-read prose. This book is a one-stop shop for those of us teaching or attempting to practice crisis management in acute care settings.

For those just needing a thumbnail sketch of topics such as cognition or communication under stress, the “in a nutshell” sections provide elegant one-page summaries synthesizing extensive research. The “quick tips” sections show clinicians and educators how to adapt their clinical management and teamwork to best crisis resource management practices. For those running blogs or journal clubs on teamwork or high reliability, each chapter can be read and discussed in depth; for those designing teamwork or CRM experiences, the extensive bibliography of each chapter provides a trove of evidence to explain the rationale behind learning objectives.

It is hard for all of us healthcare educators and quality and safety professionals to accept what Charles Perrow argued in his visionary book Normal Accidents: Living with High-Risk Technologies: that neither constant vigilance nor system design can prevent error and accidents in complex systems. Accidents and errors should not surprise us; rather, they are a normal part of what happens when humans interact with each other in complex technologies and complex organizations. But Crisis Management in Acute Care Settings gives us a fighting chance to reduce error and improve performance even when the odds are against us.

CMS Faculty Author Articles in December Issue of Simulation in Healthcare

CMS faculty members  Jenny Rudolph, Dan Raemer, and Robert Simon were authors in two articles published  in the December issue of Simulation in Healthcare: The Journal of the Society of Simulation in Healthcare. Congratulations to Jenny, Dan and Robert and to Adam Cheng of KidSIM-ASPIRE Simulation Research Program/Alberta Children’s Hospital who was the lead author in one of the articles written with Dan Raemer.

Establishing a Safe Container for Learning in Simulation: The Role of the Presimulation Briefing

Abstract

In the absence of theoretical or empirical agreement on how to establish and maintain engagement in instructor-led health care simulation debriefings, we organize a set of promising practices we have identified in closely related fields and our own work. We argue that certain practices create a psychologically safe context for learning, a so-called safe container. Establishing a safe container, in turn, allows learners to engage actively in simulation plus debriefings despite possible disruptions to that engagement such as unrealistic aspects of the simulation, potential threats to their professional identity, or frank discussion of mistakes. Establishing a psychologically safe context includes the practices of (1) clarifying expectations, (2) establishing a “fiction contract” with participants, (3) attending to logistic details, and (4) declaring and enacting a commitment to respecting learners and concern for their psychological safety. As instructors collaborate with learners to perform these practices, consistency between what instructors say and do may also impact learners’ engagement.

Is Clinical Trial Registration for Simulation-Based Research Necessary?

Abstract

 The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors requires that all clinical trials be prospectively registered before being considered for publication in their member journals. Clinical trial registries are Web-based databases of clinical trials, providing researchers, journal editors, and reviewers detailed study information to help inform trial results. What is unclear is whether clinical trial registration is required for simulation-based studies, where typically health care providers are the subjects and where the outcomes may be provider based or patient based. In this article, we describe the background and reasoning behind clinical trial registration and discuss whether simulation-based studies should be registered as a prerequisite to publication.
