Session Description

Trauma and acute care resuscitation in medicine requires split-second decisions. Clinicians need physical spaces and clinical equipment designed to optimize the delivery of life-saving interventions. Using high-fidelity technology, this roundtable will simulate high stakes, dynamic scenarios that test and inform the design of newly constructed clinical environments. A case study will highlight the application of healthcare simulation coupled with design thinking to inform the design and construction of a high-tech, ergonomically optimized trauma resuscitation unit. Join us to learn how trauma and emergency physicians integrate simulation and design thinking to redesign clinical spaces resulting in lives saved.
