The emphasis this year will be on multiple new implementation and use studies of emergency manuals that are linking prior evidence-based research with real clinical practice. Emergency manuals are context-relevant sets of cognitive aids, such as crisis checklists, in this case for perioperative contexts. Rationale for why to implement and use emergency manuals will be briefly presented, drawing from safety critical and high reliability industries, human factors concepts, and simulation-based healthcare studies.
