Start time: Tuesday, February 16, 2021, 11:00 AM End time: Tuesday, February 16, 2021, 12:00 PM CE Hours: 1.00 Session Type: Lecture Series
Learning Objective 1:
Give an example of the following principle: Simulation facilitates understanding of the difference between work as imagined (rules and SOP) and work as done
Learning Objective 2:
Give an example of the following principle: Simulation enables understanding of how frontline healthcare workers adapt to and manage risk
Learning Objective 3:
Give an example of the following principle: Simulation develops understanding of how tools and processes require modification to a specific context
This course is a general overview of the topic.
Safety II values the perspective and expertise of frontline healthcare workers and how the frontline healthcare worker adapts on an ongoing basis to deliver care to patients. Safety II values what goes well, but also focuses on supporting healthcare workers in their everyday work. The risk is that the adaptive behaviors of individuals may be unrecognized by the organization’s leaders. How do we make these adaptations visible and support normal “good” work? \In situ simulation is a way to understand the difference between work as imagined and work as done. We need to move from the ‘whack-a-mole’ approach which focuses on error, to one built on an understanding of how care is delivered so well, so often, under difficult and varying conditions.”.1 There is a need to move away from the view of the healthcare worker as superhero and towards a perspective that supports the actual work we do everyday.
