Applying Human Factors to your practice - making the team briefing count
In this session, John Hardie and Peter Brennan will discuss what makes for a good team brief. We will highlight the importance of effective communication, empowering all team members to speak up if concerned. We will introduce the concept of threat and error management, and how to actively think ahead by building both individual and team situational awareness.
We highlight the value of the PPP mini-brief (Patient, Procedure, People) for regaining SA during safety critical steps. Finally we will explain about surgical currency and how to ensure we keep patients safe.
