Presentation Abstract:

Small amounts of stress can enhance performance; however, excessive stress dramatically curtails execution. The presentation will present the neuroscience behind how and why this occurs with stress and also explore specific jobs where failure is not an option: such as airline pilots and Secret Service. How does the training for such positions differ from routine instruction? The presenter will draw on his own experience of developing simulation training for elite, rapid insertion units of the U.S. military and how these lessons can be applied to healthcare simulation training and assessment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Be able to describe the effects of stress on healthcare provider and healthcare learner performance.
  2. Describe two mechanisms whereby clinical simulation training can protect healthcare providers and learners against the erosive effects of stress.
  3. Develop an algorithm for progressive immersion in healthcare simulation to improve healthcare performance and patient care outcomes.
