Crisis management on surgical wards: a simulation-based approach to enhancing technical, teamwork, and patient interaction skills.
Arora S, Hull L, Fitzpatrick M, Sevdalis N, Birnbach DJ. Ann Surg. 2015 Feb 6; [Epub ahead of print].
This simulation study examined how residents respond to postoperative deterioration in the surgical ward. Residents improved in validated assessments of clinical performance, teamwork, and communication with patients compared to before the simulation. This work underscores the importance of simulation in patient safety education across multiple clinical settings.
