The effects of aviation -based error management training on perioperative safety attitudes
by LaPoint, Jeffrey L., Ed.D., University of Phoenix, 2008, 139; 3326208
Abstract (Summary)

Preventable errors in American hospitals result in the deaths of thousands of patients each year. Studies suggest that the present need for a medical cultural transformation closely parallels that of the aviation community in the 1970s. Aviation crew resource management (CRM) training, based on effective communication and teamwork skills, may translate to healthcare through error management training. This quasi-experimental, quantitative study observed operating room attitudes about safety and medical errors among perioperative personnel at a major Midwestern United States hospital following an aviation-based CRM team-intervention training program. Although there was no change reported on actual number of errors, study results suggest a correlation between the CRM intervention and post-intervention changes in perioperative safety attitudes.
