As you’re talking with a sick patient and frustrated family members, your pager goes off, your employer-provided phone just gifted you a new admission in the emergency department, and secure chat messages are piling up in the electronic medical record as you struggle to keep up with the real world.  How do you control your emotions and stay composed during your super...

Escape Room Medical Simulations
Medical simulations allow health care professionals to practice and hone skills in a low-risk environment, enabling them to better handle real-life emergencies. Medical simulation has come a long way in recent years, providing a safe and controlled environment in which health care professionals can practice and improve their skills.1 Gone are the days of simple mannequin simulations. Today’s medical simulations are highly realistic and interactive, using advanced technology such as virtual reality and high-fidelity mannequins that can mimic real human physiology including bleeding and crying. Medical simulations allow h...

Learning from the Past to Grow the Future
March of 2020 brought about health care concerns that most Baby Boomers and Generations X, Y, and Z never could have imagined needing to endure.

The safety of anaesthesia delivered by rural generalist anaesthetists: a scoping review of the literature
CONCLUSION: RGAs are pivotal in the delivery of health care in rural and remote communities. The sparse literature available on RGA safety is broadly grouped into five areas. There is a need to characterise and describe the role of RGAs, review and revise training and education, recognise RGA scope of practice and understand how RGAs lead the management of safety and risk in their practice.PMID:36724490 | DOI:10.22605/RRH7358 (Source: Rural Remote Health)
