Patient Safety Highlights 2015 - Situational Awareness, Crisis Management and Patient Safety in Anesthesia Practice

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

Situational awareness (SA) is perception of elements in the environment, comprehension of that information, and ability to project future events. Accurate SA is essential for providing safe care of patients. Understanding SA’s affects on decision-making and teamwork is crucial for patient safety. SA errors contributed to a large proportion of successful claims in Closed Claims cases, illustrating the crucial role of SA in anesthesia. These claims were more likely to result in payment than non-SA error claims. This course will discuss the concept of SA in anesthesia practice and will include a discussion of how SA affects teamwork among anesthesia providers and the operating room team. Different approaches to SA assessment, factors contributing to expertise in developing enhanced SA, and recognition of errors that occur during the development of SA will be discussed. This lecture presents strategies to improve SA during daily anesthesia practice that may help improve patient safety.
