OR interCEPT

In an effort to encourage all who care for patients in the operating room (OR) at Stanford to have a voice and speak out for patient safety, the OR education leadership, the Risk Authority, the departments of anesthesia and surgery, the Goodman Surgical Education Center (GSEC), and the Center for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning (CISL) has banded together to create InterCEPT.  Interprofessional Communication Education Program on Teamwork.  This program imbeds monthly interprofessional in-situ simulations in the main operating room and ambulatory surgery center into our standard work.  These simulations and debriefs of high impact crisis situations brings about individual realizations, teamwork and systems improvements, and a culture change to emphasize patient safety and collaborative care for patients but also of each other.
