This 1-hour event took take place on Monday, May 21st, 2018 at 10:00am Pacific, 1pm Eastern.
The topic for this event is real-time situational awareness. We constantly hear how important this is, especially in dynamic environments where things can change rapidly... like in patient care.
What is situational awareness? It's the thoughtful consideration people give to factors about a situation or task that dictate what information they and others need, when they need it, and how to prioritize competing demands. It is a recognized “non-technical skill” along with teamwork, communications and managing hierarchical lines of communications.
This discussion will explore the intersection between this "non-technical" skill and point of care technology that can enhance situational awareness among caregivers and clinicians.
In this discussion we will:
- Explore the role of situational awareness and other non-technical skills in patient safety
- Define the 3 levels of situational awareness: perception, understanding, and prediction
- Specific ways real-time situational awareness can be enhanced by messaging and orchestration systems
- Looking from the other perspective, what messaging system features enable situational awareness among caregivers and clinicians
- And discuss some real life clinical scenarios where situational awareness impacts patient safety
Join us on Monday, May 21st at 10am Pacific, 1pm Eastern.
