THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.
Emergency manuals or crisis checklists are context-relevant cognitive aids designed to enable the delivery of optimal care during critical events. Increasing evidence has supported the use of these checklists perioperatively to improve event management and reduce the omission of key steps. Despite growing interest, successful implementation of these checklists with clinician familiarity and actual use of the manuals remains challenging.This seminar will utilize tools and techniques from quality improvement, implementation science and project management to help attendees create a plan to implement emergency manuals at their own institutions. Following short didactic sessions, learners will work through phases of implementation and create a timeline, including identification of champions, stakeholder analysis, leadership buy-in, selection, modification, and testing of a checklist, development of an education and training plan, and creation of a maintenance and measurement plan.
