American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Session Code: PS217
Title: Crisis Management in the Operating Room
Date and Time of Session: Tuesday, October 24: 12:45 pm - 2:15 pm
Description: Educating surgical teams about human error as it relates to an in-operating room crisis and how to mitigate the effects of those errors helps teams to be highly functional in various circumstances. Because critical clinical events are rare, few health care professionals have experience in crisis management. Furthermore, even senior surgeons are vulnerable to missing the often subtle early signs of a developing situation resulting in a delay in determining a cause and taking appropriate action. Understanding the concepts of human error, team leadership and response strategies may mitigate the consequences of a crisis event.
