Perinatal emergency multidisciplinary simulation: identifying latent errors and improving communication between teams
Perinatal medicine requires a multidisciplinary approach with teams working in synchrony to achieve optimal outcomes. In the wake of the Ockenden report,1 a multidisciplinary perinatal simulation programme was designed and introduced at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, aiming to improve teamworking, interdisciplinary communication and ultimately, patient outcomes. The design and implementation of the programme followed by preliminary findings are presented in this article. These include the key learning outcomes, latent errors and the influence on teamworking and current practice.Catherine Jane Douch
