Human Factors Study
At 'Below Ten Thousand Medical', we have been exploring
Human Factors in Anaesthetic Nursing
in the BTT Conceptual Laboratory.
"Oh, God!!!!!" I hear you say;
"What's Pete been up to NOW!!!!"
....or....to be more precise:
"What can Lego add to Nursing Education?"
An emergency crashes through the door.
You have five minutes notice.
How we do what we do determines how we handle what we do.
Divisions of labour?
All this and more!
Drawing sketches on paper didn't seem to cut it.
There was so much more to consider:
Who, What, How?
What was needed was a model.
OK!!! NOW.....LET'S PLAY!!!!!
Now we're talking.
Or rather.....communicating and engaging in a structured and strategic way.
What could possibly go wrong?
Teams with direct communication pathways.
Timely task sequencing with an underlying architecture of flow.
Focus on the task at hand with optimised outcome in mind.
Trust, because everybody knows who's job it is to do....X.
I think we have....gasp.....control!!!!!
Because this is what everyone is itching to find out!
The climax of the story!
Everyone DOES WELL:
Debriefing Opportunities Explore Situations With Excellently Leveraged Learning!
Ain't it great, being part of an amazing team!
OK, so I've selected:
Luke Hodge (Hawks) (in gold) as the Supervising anaesthetist
Jimmy Bartel (Geelong) as the Airway anaesthetist
Harry Taylor (Geelong) is the Airway nurse
Two Josh Kennedys (Swans) as Anaesthetist and nurse, are putting in the drips, art line and CVC
I think that's Rorie Sloane (Adelaide) checking blood with Trent Cotchin (Tigers)
And Justin Westhoff is the unallocated anaesthetic team member.
Jarrod Croker (Rugby League, Canberra Raiders) is the Theatre Tech
Two Steele Sidebottoms and Jamie Elliot (Collingwood) are the surgeons
Josh Gibson (Hawthorn) is the scrub nurse
Billy Slater (Rugby League, Melbourne Storm) is the scout
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
If you have any arguments as to who SHOULD be on the team
please excuse me if I settle debates RUGBY LEAGUE style!
