The Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality recently awarded a $4 million grant to a team led by Dr. Amir Ghaferi at the University of Michigan to address gaps in understanding and gaps in rapid translation impeding ideal integrated rescue systems within hospitals. To support the rapid prototyping and testing for the proposed learning laboratory, the scientific team for this project includes collaborator Dr. Rajesh Aggarwal, Associate Professor of Surgery and Director, Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University.
Dr. Aggarwal will assist on this project with developing Failure to Rescue (FTR) scenarios and resulting needs analysis that will be rapidly prototyped to test novel solutions to FTR. Within the simulation environment, he will consult to develop training programs for health care professionals to manage patient rescue. These programs will be tested in the clinical environment with real-time in-situ simulation-based implementation and evaluated through use of validated process measures.
