My interest is in implementation science, improving systems practice, quality improvement, and patient safety, often utilizing various tools from medical simulation that can translate to clinical changes. Currently, our group's main focus is understanding effective implementation and use of emergency manuals (context relevant sets of cognitive aids or checklists), for crisis management of critical events. We enjoy collaborating with multiple colleagues throughout healthcare and other safety-critical industries, For background and free resources for implementing these tools see http://emergencymanual.stanford.edu/ from Stanford Anesthesia Cognitive Aid Group and www.emergencymanuals.org/ from the broader Emergency Manuals Implementation Collaborative
Implementation of emergency manuals (context relevant sets of cognitive aids or crisis checklists) and other evidence-based patient safety advances can help excellent clinicians to deliver optimal care, if designed and implemented effectively. My, and our group's, interests include:1. Implementation of emergency manuals for crisis management of critical events, in both simulation-based and clinical settingsFor free resources, see: http://emergencymanual.stanford.edu, a website I developed to share the work of our Stanford Anesthesia Cognitive Aid Group and our interdisciplinary clinical implementation team. And www.emergencymanuals.org, Emergency Manuals Implementation Collaborative, which a group of us founded to freely share tools and implementation resources nationally and globally. 2. Applying mixed-methods of implementation science to research #1.3. Utilizing high fidelity simulation along with debriefing to teach principles of Crisis Resource Management (CRM). Faculty for multiple courses and Co-Director of Stanford's Evolve simulation program.4. Combining verbal 'What If's' with low-tech screen-based simulation to harness the power of simulation and debriefing in much wider, more frequent, and even clinical settings. 5. Difficult airway management, and ENT anesthesia, integrating procedural and full-scenario simulation to practice and debrief approaches to challenging cases.
