Blog from Mark Hellaby, an Operating Department Practitioner (ODP) and currently leading a regional simulation team for Health Education England, on the effect interruptions can have. Distractions in healthcare are common. Interruptions when clinicians are completing complex tasks are familiar. This is a time when mistakes can be made. Mark led a session around distraction and cognition which allowed him over the day to start to draw together the discussions into some type of working model on how to reduce distractions.
What will I learn?
- Awareness of distractions/interruptions
- Reducing avoidable interruptions
- Managing unavoidable distractions
Distraction - sorry to interrupt, but can I just show you this ECG http://www.markhellaby.com/2019/06/distraction-sorry-to-interrupt-but-can.html
