State the overall Goal or Outcome : To support leaders in their efforts to implement strategies to improve CPR quality and survival of pediatric cardiac arrest by (1) identifying three key strategies; (2) defining barriers to implementation; and (3) highlighting solutions to overcome barriers. The three key strategies to be discussed during this workshop are: (a) workplace-based distributed CPR training, (b) CPR coaching with real-time feedback during cardiac arrest, and (c) data-informed clinical debriefing after cardiac arrest events.
Intended Audience : Educators, clinicians and administrators
Appropriate for any level
Relevance to the Conference : The ultimate goals of simulation-based education and research are to improve the performance of healthcare providers and outcomes of patients in the real clinical environment. In this workshop, we address an important issue related to survival and neurological outcome of patients with cardiac arrest. The survival of patients is determined by not only medical sciences but also educational efficiency and local implementation. This workshop encourages participants to apply strategies that have shown benefit in simulation-based research to the real clinical world, and discuss the barriers and solutions to implementing these strategies. In this workshop, we highlight three key interventions that have been the focus of research for members of our workshop faculty team. We will share our expertise with workshop attendees, and work with them to define implementation strategies for their own institutions. This will help participants to translate lessons learned regarding CPR and cardiac arrest from the simulated environment to the real world.
