Abstract:
PURPOSE: The emergency management of compromised pediatric patients whether in the ED or pediatric unit is often a chaotic and stressful event, especially in a community hospital. A nursing quality care initiative was undertaken to create an inter-disciplinary team training program in the management of pediatric emergencies & resuscitation and to increase communication and collaboration among physicians, nurses, paramedics and respiratory therapists. Description: The program was developed by a committee comprised of representatives from nursing education, the Family Center, Emergency Department nursing and physician staff, paramedicine, respiratory therapy and Pediatrics. The committee was chaired by the hospital's simulation specialist. Program objectives were written and an evidenced-based curriculum was developed. Scenarios for Laerdal's SimBaby were written by the simulation specialist and were based on actual case reviews. The simulations were trialed with the committee members and revisions made according to their recommendations. Members of the five clinical units participated in a two-and-a-half hour session. Each session incorporated two scenarios, one respiratory and one cardio/respiratory/sepsis. After each simulated case learners participated in a debriefing session. Discussion focused on team concepts, inter-personal communications, team leadership vs. patient management, use of Broselow pediatric equipment and the use of multi-dimensional simulation as a training modality. At the completion of the training program the participants were required to complete evaluations on the achievement of objectives, what went right and wrong, and the simulation experience. EVALUATION: After ten training sessions the evaluations demonstrated a >95% score of 4 or 5 on a 5-point Likert scale for program satisfaction, achievement of objectives and increase in knowledge regarding teamwork and inter-personal communications. The Simulation Program Evaluation also demonstrated satisfaction with the simulation experience, its realism, complexity, and the scenario's ability to promote teamwork and collaboration. The participants also gave the debriefing session high marks for its ability to promote reflection, critical thinking and learning. All would recommend the program to their colleagues. Participant comments lead to changes in the pedi code cart and unit equipment needs.
