Crew Resource Management – Communications

I have been hearing these buzz words  Crew Resource Management (CRM) lately.  After reading the basis of CRM I see parallels to our work in EMS and how the CRM process can help EMTs and paramedics do a better job.  CRM started in the military and in aviation industry as a way of reducing errors in flight.  Obviously when a plan crashes the stakes are very high and affect hundreds of lives.

Crew Resource Management Topics:

Communications

Situational Awareness

Decision Making

Teamwork

Barriers

Communications is a key area that directly affects patient care. I found that “thinking out loud was a great strategy when working as a medic for sharing ideas.  Often my partner and I would be thinking the same thing and benefit from the open communication.  The American Heart Association refers to this as a Constructive Intervention.  Please post your comments about CRM Communication below.
