Don’t Go Away Mad!

Rotor Safety Challenge (RSC)
Instructor: Sarah Barber

Completion of a post-transport debrief following every patient transport is an essential component of ensuring a medical transport company’s ongoing commitment to safety and quality improvement. The medical transport industry is uniquely positioned to develop a standardized post-transport debrief that encompasses the same key elements every time. This session will explain why the post-transport debrief is a crucial part of crew resource management, what obstacles there are to completing it, and how to overcome those obstacles through application of communication tools, psychology, and company culture.
