Simulations

James McNulty, Dr. Jon Jui, and Dr. Carl Eriksson working with a manikin during a simulation planning meeting

Purpose

To recreate safety events and their known environmental and system contributors. By doing this, we hope to understand factors that allow or prevent safety events from occurring during high risk situations.

Methods

Conduct simulations of emergencies that we know are at high risk for safety events

  • Examine how and why safety events occur
  • Examine teamwork

Update

We are currently writing the scenarios and planning the simuations for this aim of the study.
