During a recent in-service at work, we watched two important videos. One is the story of Martin and Elaine Bromiley, called “Just a routine operation“. The other was “Anatomy of a Disaster” by Jo Deverill. Together, the two stories are a powerful and inspiring reminder of the critical importance of human factors in health care (and other areas).
In response, I scripted and produced a small video telling the story of Christopher’s birth – and relating it to the principles of Crisis Resource Management in health care. The video is FOAMed and therefore freely available to share. Our hope is that it will make a difference in the lives of other patients.
Without further ado, let me present “17 Minutes”… and with that, a resounding “thank you!” to all those who have responded to our story with such enthusiasm. It has been overwhelming and humbling.
