Title: Epic Misadventures and Lessons Learned: Professionalism's Practical Side
The discipline (actually interdisciplinary area) of Human Factors is undertaught in medical and nursing education. As a result, error and safety are widely misunderstood. Worse, the topic is feared and avoided, obviously an undesirable circumstance.
It is possible that this topic is an excellent model for professionalisms challenges. If a professional can own up to mistakes in the current environment, what professionalism challenge would they not knock out of the park?
That being said, an environment in which facing error is yet more painful is not desirable.
Society is engaged in the biggest overhaul of health care education since the Flexner Report. Witness the ACGME Outcomes Project, Core competencies, CANmeds, and the Milestones initiatives. While we are changing things around anyway, why preserve obsolete views of error, which train generation after generation to be ashamed of and cover up our most important source of learning?
This workshop will do what no lecture can. It will engage participants as central figures in the ongoing debate about the relationship between error, professionalism, and unwanted results.
All types of Anesthesia practitioners (faculty, ancillary staff, and residents).
Objectives; Participants will:
- Formulate and present an incident or accident in their discipline
- Analyze their narrative and that of others: Are they simply telling their story, are they defending themselves?
- Contrast and compare what the “first story “ and “second story” would sound like for their incident
- Locate and adapt, in their story, elements of safety one and safety two.
- Share all of the above with the larger group.
