EPICC –Error Prevention In Complex Care course

This course in clinical team leadership has been designed to provide emergency physicians with the skills to manage and lead an unrehearsed multidisciplinary team who assemble in the resus room to manage critically ill patients and receive ambulance alerts.

The course is classroom and simulated role-play based with opportunities to put practical lessons into play.

Human Factors experts working together with emergency physicians have created this one-day course to give emergency physicians the practical skills to manage competing interests, challenging personalities among team members and to maintain control in the resus room to ensure the delivery of optimum multi-disciplinary team care to critically unwell patients.

Feedback evaluations of the course have been highly positive and repeat courses have been delivered at two venues.

Contact Atrainability for booking information. Please note the course is not currently run on an open basis, but only for Trusts.
