e-REAL and Crisis Resource Management for Labor and Delivery Clinicians
- Field: Healthcare
- Venue: e-REAL Lab at the Center for Medical Simulation, Boston, MA and e-REAL Online Lab
- Simulation Team: Roxane Gardner, Rebecca Minehart
- Instructional Design Team: Roxane Gardner, Fernando Salvetti
Experiential coursework focused on learning and improving teamwork and event management during simulated obstetrical cases, which makes effective team management during a crisis a core element of expert practice. Medical simulation contributes enormously to enhance teamwork during a crisis by fostering situational awareness and contextual intelligence, as well as cognitive retention of essential steps and procedures to be performed during the ongoing crisis.
The e-REAL system reproduces a variety of different emergent situations, enabling learners to interact with multimedia scenarios and practice using a mnemonic called Name-Claim-Aim. Learners rapidly cycle between deliberate practice and direct feedback within a simulation scenario until mastery is achieved.
