Anatomy of Rapid Response Teams

The Rapid Response Team (RRT) is a key multidisciplinary team trained in early resuscitation interventions and advanced life support instrumental in helping improve patient outcomes. This webinar offers a comprehensive and practical exploration of the implementation, structure, and impact of RRTs in a large multi-center hospital.

 

Roadmap for Improving CPR and Patient Outcomes

Join us for an insightful case study demonstrating  how to achieve significant improvement in CPR quality and outcomes. Jennifer Hayes, MSN, RN, CCRN-K, will share the compelling story of how CHOC leveraged their on-site resources, embraced the power of data, and nurtured educated and trained staff to improve their code event processes.

The Importance of High-quality CPR:Science and Practice

Current CPR guidelines continue to stress the key components to improving survival rate: A correct compression rate; achieving complete chest wall recoil; providing a sufficient but specific depth of chest compressions; and avoiding the hemodynamic consequences of improper ventilation.

Debriefing After Cardiac Arrest

Heather Wolfe, MD

Clinical event debriefing adapts learnings from simulation debriefing to allow clinicians time to reflect and collectively learn after significant clinical events. Debriefing provides the opportunity to discuss interactions within the clinical environment to improve performance in the future.

From Field to Floor: Exploring CPR,  ECMO and Outcomes

Juliann Eigner, RN BSN CCRN

In this webinar you will learn about cutting edge ideas, new technologies, and progressive protocols to help realize higher quality CPR, achieve significantly improved positive outcomes from cardiac arrest, and simultaneously enhance best practices for hospital initiatives. Plus, walk through real life clinical scenarios to see where progressive hospital programs are including ECMO and the relationship with high-quality CPR.

Best Practices in Adult Resuscitation Debriefing 

Fiona Winterbottom​

Debriefing provides the opportunity to discuss interactions within the clinical environment to improve performance in the future. Debriefings are categorized by time in relation to the initial event, with “hot” debriefings occurring in the minutes to hours following the event and “cold” debriefings occurring in the days to weeks following an incident.

Using Debriefing Data to Improve Clinical Outcomes

Melissa Hutchinson, DNP, ARNP-CNS, CWCN-AP, CCRN

Data-driven debriefing is a key focus in the review of cardiac arrest response programs in the hospital. In this webinar, we look at one large center’s journey in using data for process improvement. Learn about the successes and challenges faced in in-patient code response. Discover technological advances that can help improve cardiac arrest outcomes and learn tips to refine your current program.

Debriefing After Cardiac Arrest

Heather Wolfe, MD

Assistant Professor of Anesthesia and Critical Care Medicine 

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

 

Description

Clinical event debriefing adapts learnings from simulation debriefing to allow clinicians time to reflect and collectively learn after significant clinical events. Debriefing provides the opportunity to discuss interactions within the clinical environment to improve performance in the future. Debriefings are categorized by time in relation to the initial event, with “hot” debriefings occurring in the minutes to hours following the event and “cold” debriefings occurring in the days to weeks following an incident. This webinar will focus on how cold briefings can improve resuscitation outcomes based on a recent study across multiple pediatric centers.

 

Learning Objectives 

  1. Discuss the importance and impact of a data-driven debriefing program after cardiac arrest

  2. Describe how to integrate quantitative data into a cardiac arrest debriefing program

  3. Identify challenges in implementing a cold briefing program
