Abstract

Introduction: Healthcare continues to grow in complexity. Numerous publications have confirmed that most adverse events are caused by inherent problems within the processes being used, which implies that reengineering the systems can reduce the incidence of error. Objective: To understand the value of team education with clinical simulation to promote a systems-oriented, multidisciplinary team-driven, patient-centered approach for optimal patient outcomes. Methodology: We present several simulation-based strategies as an example on how to cope with changes at the organizational level. Results: After simulation based training inter-professional teams were able to safely provide sedation for colonoscopy, and to enhance teamwork for early detection and goal-directed treatment of sepsis in the surgical ward. Conclusion: Clinical simulation provides a safe environment to reorganize care and train professionals to work in teams. © 2013 Sociedad Colombiana de Anestesiología y Reanimación.
