Crew resource management in the intensive care unit: a prospective 3-year cohort study.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
Following crew resource management training for intensive care unit staff and implementation of a checklist, this pre-post study found that complications (such as cardiac arrests) and mortality decreased. Training and checklists were introduced simultaneously, so the improvements may be due to one or both interventions, and each of these have demonstrated mixed success in prior studies.
