Further study details as provided by Sheba Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • improvement in teamwork parameters as measured by previously published tools

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: January 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2006
Detailed Description:
Patient safety and the prevention of medical error are primary goals of healthcare organizations. One of the means of reducing such errors is teamwork improvement. Simulation training, using advanced patient simulators, has been shown to improve diagnostic, resuscitation and technical skills amongst physicians and nurses. We intend to compare simulation training of a mixed team of physicians and nurses, using specifically designed scenarios based on real life experience, to frontal teaching sessions designed to enhance teamwork, by assessing teamwork, using accepted behavioral scales, during routine work, before and after both interventions.
