This course is an example of a specific scenario, course, or curriculum.
Medicine is a team sport, but our schedules mean we are frequently changing the roster. Breakdown in communication, particularly during high-stress scenarios, threaten patient safety. Closed-loop communication allows for clear role definition, provides potential for better patient outcomes, and promotes a shared mental model. In this workshop, we will be demonstrating a unique method for training and evaluating closed-loop communication.
