The purpose of the study is to check wether training mixed teams of physicians and nurses from intensive care units on patient simulators reduces stress in team members.

Condition Intervention
Education, Health Behavioral: simulation training

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Educational/Counseling/Training
Official Title: Experimental Like Study of Stress Reduction in Intensive Care Teams by Use of Simulation Training

Further study details as provided by Sheba Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • reduction of stress parameters

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: January 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2006
Detailed Description:
Patient safety and the prevention of medical error are primary goals of healthcare organizations. Stress reduction may reduce or ameliorate such errors. Simulation training, using advanced patient simulators, has been shown to improve diagnostic, resuscitation and technical skills amongst physicians and nurses.We intend to check wether stress during ICU shifts may be reduced by using specifically designed scenarios based on real life experience,in integrative multidisciplinary ICU teams.
