In situ simulation for Trauma Team Training by Chris Hicks.
Chris explains how managing difficult cases often doesn’t have anything to do with a lack of medical knowledge.
The hard part is the practicality of getting things done in an interdisciplinary team environment.
We strive for implicit coordination – where team members work so seamlessly together that they barely speak.
This is the essence of high performing teams.
Chris talks us through the team based factors of trauma care and how to put this into action in your hospital.
