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.

The Center for Medical Simulation is pleased to announce that both Jenny Rudolph, Executive Director of CMS, and Mary Fey, Associate Director of the Institute for Medical Simulation at CMS, will speak at the California Simulation Alliance’s second annual conference on October 15th, 2016, at the University of San Francisco.

Jenny and Mary will facilitate a special pre-conference debriefing workshop on the topic of Debriefing with Good Judgement©, on October 14th, 2016, with an introductory online webinar which took place on October 4th, 2016.

The theme of this year’s annual conference is “Making an Impact on Healthcare Education: Bridging the Gap Using Simulation.” Jenny Rudolph will deliver the keynote address at the conference, on the topic, “Creating a Transformational Learning Environment: High Standards and High Regard in Healthcare Simulation.” This interactive keynote speech will explore how to link holding learners to high standards while also holding them in high regard, as the basis for learning in simulation. Some debriefers are “nice” and withhold judgement to protect the learner, while others “tell it like it is” and demoralize the learner. Jenny will discuss how debriefers can do both these things simultaneously in a way that feels fair and fun.

 Mary Fey will also deliver a talk discussing the effects of the recent National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) study on the use of simulation in nursing curricula. She will introduce the findings of the study, which showed that a certain percentage of contact hours for nursing students could be successfully and effectively replaced with simulation. She will also show nursing educators how to integrate simulation into their curricula, given the new NCSBN guidelines.

The California Simulation Alliance (CSA) is a program of HealthImpact. CSA’s purpose is to develop simulation education in the state of California for registered nurses and healthcare professionals. For more information, visit www.californiasimulationalliance.org.

CMS’ Jenny Rudolph On How Steering And Deepening a Feedback/Debriefing Conversation Can Feel Like Opposing Goals

 

 

jenny-rudolphHow steering and deepening a feedback or debriefing conversation can often feel like opposing goals.

Healthcare educators sometimes feel that if they don’t ask open ended-questions they won’t connect with and understand the learners point of view.  But we also worry that we may not be able to manage the time or topic.  Some great examples of having it both ways are revealed by accomplished journalists and talk show host; they conversation on track yet give lots of space to hear other other person’s guiding principles or goals.  Scott Simon’s interview with author Scott Simon Jonathan Evison about his new novel, This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance is such an example.  He uses “Advocacy plus Inquiry” pairing his observations and point of view with questions, as well as “previewing” sign post statements that keep the interviewer and listener oriented, to delve into author Evison’s inspiration, goals, and compassion for his characters.  Listen to the interview here:  http://www.npr.org/2015/09/05/437768179/harriet-chance-explores-late-life-reinvention

Jenny Rudolph, PhD is the Senior Director of the Center for Medical Simulation’s Instructor Training Programs – The Institute for Medical Simulation. 

Jenny Rudolph talks about how excellent debriefing or interviewing is sometimes invisible

jenny-rudolphWhen I watch or listen to interviews I’ve noticed something.  In excellent interviews like in excellent debriefings, the questions and questioner seem to fade into the background and the story and ideas of the learner or interviewee stand out.  Like a well-designed setting for a precious gem, or good lighting in the theater, good debriefing and interviewing is not that noticeable.  This is ironic because it takes some effort and practice to master the interview and debriefing techniques to be invisible. 

A lovely 2.5 minute example of this is Joshua Gubitz’s interview of his 85 year-old friend Len Berk.  When Berk retired as a CPA he got himself hired as a salmon slicer at a gourmet deli in NYC.  Although this clip no doubt benefitted from skillful audio editing, you will notice that Josh Gubitz just taps the topic along, with little follow-up questions, or a chuckle of encouragement.  He doesn’t get in the way of Berk telling his story.  Gubitz’s underlying feeling of interest and positive regard for Berk and Berk’s inherent love of salmon slicing do the rest.
